Save Time and Money: Join up with your neighbors having similar work done and ask the contractor for a group rate.
Good Business Practices: When working with any contractor, be sure to consider the following good business practices:
- Clearly specify what you expect as the end result of the contractor's work for you.
- Obtain in writing a description of the job and warranty, any related services, and the total price.
- Check references with former customers and the Better Business Bureau.
- As appropriate, obtain information about state and county licenses, bonding and liability insurance.
- Realize that a contractor's company may employ a variety of workers and you may not obtain the same worker for your job as the one recommended by your neighbor.
- Consider your instincts about the contractor's character, skills and potential working relationship with you.
