BuildCorrect: A Property Owner's Guide To Managing Any Construction Project and Avoiding Contractor Scams

11/23/09

CHICAGO, IL (MMD Newswire) November 20, 2009 -- BuildCorrect: A Property Owner's Guide To Managing Any Construction Project and Avoiding Contractor Scams, by real estate developer and general contractor Ricky Trinidad, is a step-by-step guidebook for property owners looking for guidance on how to manage contractors, avoid scams and complete construction projects in an economical and timely fashion.

After more than a decade in the real estate development and construction industry, Trinidad says he has seen a lack of information available to property owners desiring to improve their properties by hiring contractors. He states that the majority of books available to the public are "how-to" or "do-it-yourself" manuals that do not provide guidance in construction management or protection against contractor scams. BuildCorrect aims to fill this void by offering guidance and advice on selecting the right contractors, becoming savvier about how to enhance properties and how to effectively manage any construction process from start to finish without being taken advantage of.

According to Trinidad, the construction industry is infested with scams. He suggests that property owners are frequently over-charged or become entangled in a bad situation when hiring a contractor or maintenance person to perform work, and they don't know where to turn or what to do to resolve the situation. Trinidad devotes Section 2 of BuildCorrect to help readers understand, prevent and diffuse contractor scams, outlining 13 common scenarios, including kickbacks, bait-and-switch, change-order scams, fraud and theft. "They won't teach you about construction scams in college," states Trinidad.

Trinidad believes the real estate downturn in the current economy has created a need for property owners to maintain and improve their current properties because new construction loans are no longer as readily available as they were in the past. With BuildCorrect, Trinidad has compiled the tools and resources he personally uses as a developer, a property owner and general contractor of a variety of commercial and residential projects.

Purchasers of the book receive free access to nine online tools designed to empower the property owner, including legal documents, spreadsheets and project schedules. Trinidad's intention with BuildCorrect is to provide guidance and tools for property owners involved in any size or type of construction, repair or remodeling project.

BuildCorrect: A Property Owner's Guide To Managing Any Construction Project and Avoiding Contractor Scams is available for sale online at Amazon.com, BookSurge.com and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide.
