How to Find a Reputable Contractor!

How to Find a Reputable Contractor


There are so many horror stories about disreputable or incompetent home improvement contactors that television shows have been made about them.


Unless you want to be a guest on one of those programs, take steps to ensure you find a good contractor. Here are some tips that will help:


• Ask for references. Speak to the references and ask many questions!


• Get a detailed written estimate of the work to be done, and make sure you understand all the terms and        conditions.


• Be wary of contractors who insist on large payments upfront! The payment plan should be reasonable and  tied to work as completed.


• Ask if the contractor is a member of any professional associations such as Better Business Bureau.


• Don't deal with a contractor who offers you a no-tax, cash-only deal. 


• Ensure the contractor to get the appropriate permits before starting your project!


These tips won't guarantee you'll hire a reputable contractor, but they will increase the chances that you do!
