Repairing Building Contractor
Buyer beware !
There’s some great repairing building contractors out there and then
there are some who prey on clients; do shoddy work; get cash advances and perhaps even never show up !
So, - buyer beware!
The question is: How can the homeowner separate the two and make sure they hire a conscientious repairing building
contractor? It all comes down to checking into background of the remodeling contractor and taking some time
to study the options.

If you want to check out a repairing building contractor’s
ability to get the job done on time, for the right price and have quality work done, then
one of the best ways to glean information is to talk to past customers. A good repairing building contractor won’t
have any problem with providing references giving you the names of customers to speak to. If they’re not willing,
be very wary. In fact, our advice is to stay away, unless the building contractor's so new in the field references
aren't possible, but other background checks are.
If you're concerned the customers you're been given to speak to are those who are pre-programmed to say only
good things, speak with other customers when you're in the repairing building contractor's office. Or, check with
the local Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau. See if any complaints have been filed.
When talking with past customers about the repairing building contractor, here
are some questions you should ask:
* Did the building contractor's work meet your expectations?
* Did the cost come in at or near the estimate?
* Was the work completed in a timely manner?
* Has it stood up over time?
* Would you hire this contractor again?
With the right questions and attention to how they respond, a lot can be learned. One or two bad
reports might not signal a bad repairing contractor though. Look for trends, and remember some people are
impossible to please.
If the building contractor you're considering hiring is too new to offer up a lot of references,
check for other things, such as professional memberships, credentials, licensing and so on. Read the contract
closely. Steering clear of "new" repairting building contractors who have all other documentation in place and even
a job or two in progress to show could be closing the door on a worker who will go above and beyond. Just take care
to ensure all other concerns have been addressed.
Asking questions before hiring a repairing building contractor is just the smart thing to do and
you should, if possible, always check out the past work of the repairing building contractor.
