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.
