Avoiding the Con in Construction

Author Kia Ricci @ the W. T. Bland Library

Author Kia Ricchi will be appearing at the W.T. Bland Public Library on Tuesday August 3, @ 6:30 p.m. Her book, Avoiding the Con in Construction, is a road map that helps steer you away from the pitfalls of contracting.

Kia Ricchi (aka the Contractress) is a Florida-licensed building contractor. Since earning her licensure in 1998, Kia has completed numerous residential and commercial projects including several for the State of Florida.
Avoiding the Con in Construction, is a written for homeowners in a language they can understand. It is a book about "how to contract," not "how to construct," and it is for the general reader, not the general contractor. Did you know that…contracts are written to favor the author, that is, usually the contractor? Liens can cause you to lose your home? Without a Scope of Work, your costs could easily double?

Please join us for an informative evening and refreshments. The event is free, sponsored by the Mount Dora Friends of the Library. Books will be available for purchase. For additional information please call the library at 352-735-7180 X 5
