Before Hiring a Contractor
Hiring a contractor is serious business, and at RenovationExperts.com we take that into consideration with every listing we display. Every month, we help thousands of homeowners who are hiring a contractor find the very best crew for the job. We recommend that homeowners follow a few steps to protect themselves when hiring a contractor referred by Renovation Experts. At Renovation Experts, we not only connect you with a vast network of contractors, but also offer valuable information on how to hire a contractor.
The Federal Trade Commission recommends in part the following:
Check out the contractor with your local or state consumer protection officials.
Ask the contractor for customer references who have projects similar to yours.
Ask for a copy of the contractor's current insurance certificates and licenses, if required.
Get written estimates from several firms. Make sure bids are based on identical project specifications.
Get all guarantees, warranties and promises in writing.
Agree on start and completion dates, and have them written into the contract.
Renovation Experts further recommends that you do the following:
Home Improvement projects vary in type and scale and may have differing requirements for completion. It is always best if you have a signed contract in place between yourself and the contractor detailing out the specifics of the job before any financial transactions are completed.
Report suspicious contractor behavior to the Better Business Bureau and to Renovation Experts.
Never pay for work that is not completed to your satisfaction.
Homeowners should always remember that they have control over their project by controlling the release of funds to the contractor. Most problems can be corrected and resolved by maintaining this financial control. Let RenovationExperts.com help you find licensed contractors in your area today!
