Look At The Contractor’s History

See if the contractor you are considering has a Better Business Bureau listing. If they do, you should see if there have been any complaints filed against them. Examine their page carefully. Make sure that any issues they have had have been successfully resolved.

You should also get in touch with your state’s consumer protection agency. Let them know that you are planning on hiring a contractor. Give them the names of your top choices. If these contractors have had major issues in the past, the agency will let you know.

You can’t be too cautious when you’re hiring someone for a job as important as this. If you’re entrusting someone with your home, you’ll want to make sure they can get the job done.
