If a contractor damages parts of a house while working on it and subsequently repairs those damages in a substandard manner – materials as well as workmanship – that is not in compliance with building codes, will the courts award attorney’s fees to the consumer if/when she prevails? What other options does the consumer have if the contractor refuses to address the defects and will only agree to arbitration and she does not have the money to hire an attorney? In this case, it will be easy to show that the contractor materially breached the contract.
