With a lot of exterior home improvement contractors in the country, it’s hard to decide which one is the perfect fit for you. Maybe you’ve read some horror stories about jobs gone wrong. That’s why you should carefully screen your contractor.
Here are a few guide questions to ask a candidate contractor:
1. How long have you been in the business? Reliable contractors are usually experienced and can do their jobs efficiently. They are knowledgeable about what they do, so you can rest assured that your house will be in safe hands. 2. Are you accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB)? The BBB is a nonprofit organization that is focused on advancing marketplace trust. It also provides business reviews on more than 4 million businesses. 3. Do you have an account online where I can read other customers’ reviews? Online reviews are also a good source, but not the best. Go to trusted sites such as Angie’s List. Angie’s List blocks anonymous reviews. They even verify if the reviewer actually used the contractor. 4. Do you have a number where I can reach you if ever I have a question? Make sure that you communicate with your prospect contractor so everything’s clearly planned. Talk to them about your concerns and ask them for solutions. This way, you’ll be able to determine if your home will be safe in their hands. 5. What is covered in your insurance? Knowing what is covered in your contractor’s insurance is a must. Ask them about product warranty, workers’ insurance, and other relevant matters.
Looking for trustworthy contractors can be a daunting task if you don’t know how to screen them. Hopefully, these questions will help.
