Manitoba seeks home renovation horror stories
Provincial government working on new rules aimed at protecting consumers
The Manitoba government wants to hear your home renovation and repair stories, especially if you didn't get a fair deal.
"Having your home or condo renovated or repaired can be a stressful process, especially when the work ends up costing more than expected or isn't completed on time," Consumer Protection Minister Ron Lemieux stated in a news release.
"We want to ensure families are treated fairly, receive clear estimates and pay only what they had expected to pay."
The government is looking for feedback on the accuracy of cost estimates, renovation contracts and timelines, as well as the problems homeowners may have experienced.
Manitobans can submit their feedback via the Consumer Protection Office's website until March 31.
