Working With Your Contractor

What People Are Saying About WWYC

For years I have floundered around dealing with one contractor and then another. This book explains what I need to know to better communicate with them. I am now more confident and more successful with this book by my side as a reference tool.”  
    - Sarah Litchfield, Homeowner

"The glossary alone in this book is worth the entire price of the book.  It's a virtual encyclopaedia of building information in layman's terms."
    - Carol Pierce, homeowner (new-construction)

"Other books I saw on the bookstore shelf seemed to assume all contractors are dishonest or scams, and focused on getting you out of bad situations. Bershad takes the opposite approach by coaching you to find a reputable contractor and helps you develop a trusting & professional working relationship so there will be no problems, and you'll be happy with the process and results."

"I thought I knew at least a little about hiring the services of building professionals-- boy, what I found out that I didn't know after reading about hiring contractors! Blaine Bershad is a great teacher!"

"Before reading WWYC, I was hesitant about embarking on a remodeling project. But now, armed with all this great information, I feel confident in how to find, hire, and communicate with a builder."
     - Richard Davies, condo owner, recently remodeled

"I used to be intimidated by construction industry people because I
couldn't speak their language and didn't know anything about their trade. After having just skimmed this book, now I'm feel like an expert myself. Bershad's tone may be informal and easy to read, but the information is extremely valuable and useful in prepping me for all the various interactions."
     - Keith Johnson, homeowner

"I'm a college student interested in going into construction. This book is
better than any text or manuals I've ever come across. Knowing both the big picture AND the details of what goes on in contracting as explained here, I'm more than ever psyched to get started."

"Bershad is like a personal trainer/coach to give you both encouragement
and just the right information and examples you'll need for almost any project. His strategies and step-by-step methods are real life-savers (and budget-savers!)." - Paul Dandini, P.M. Dandini Construction
