Finding an Honest Home Improvement Contractor

You can’t call yourself a dentist unless you have specific hard earned credentials.
Just about anyone, however, can hang a shingle and call himself a home improvement contractor.

That’s why choosing a reputable one is so difficult.

Here are some tips:

  • Find out if he or she is truly in business full-time. A part-time or occasional contractor may not have the experience necessary to do a great job.
  • Ask about licenses and other credentials. Some contractors have accreditations from professional and trade associations.
  • Review his or her project portfolio. A reputable contractor will have photos and other evidence of work completed for similar clients.
  • Check online for reviews. If there are more than five poor reviews within the past three years — that’s a red flag.
  • Ask for references. Then, call at least one.

 

Finally, the best contractors are those that get recommended by people you trust.
