Get a permit.

Establish a payment schedule.
Set up a payment schedule that coordinates with the amount of work being completed, and don’t pay for anything unless it is completed and you are satisfied with it.
Ideally, all of this will be written in your contract.
When it comes to paying a contractor, there are 2 main rules of thumb:
- Never pay for work that hasn’t been done.
- Whenever possible, avoid paying in cash.
