How to Select the Right Contractor
After over 25 years in the industry, one of the most common questions we get asked is ‘how do I select the right contractor?’ With home improvement services being a substantial financial investment, we understand the importance of picking the right team for the job. We’ve created four helpful tips to help you choose a great fit for you and your home:
1. Think about safety
Does the contractor have the proper training and insurance to take on this project? Ensuring whomever you hire to install your roof has valid Working at Heights training and at least two million dollars liability insurance is essential.
2. Look beyond the price
Overhead expenditures will be incurred by reputable and well established companies. The price for their services will reflect these business expenses. So, be wary of anyone who offers to complete the work for much less than what is being offered by the rest of the industry. It may appear to be a reasonable value at the moment, but you may wind up spending considerably more to remedy problems that occur as a result of poor workmanship.
3. Ask For A Written Description Of Work To Be Done
Request written task information from any contractor before committing to work with them.This should include the work that needs to be done, as well as the projected time and cost.
4. See What Their Customers Have To Say
When considering a contractor, visit the company’s website to read testimonials from their customers. You should also check for reviews on third-party websites such as HomeStars. While a company chooses what they share, they do not have that control over external websites. In most cases, online review forums allow companies to respond to customer’s reviews. This will help you to determine which reviews can be trusted and which ones may be untruthful or biased.
