Need a contractor for a home improvement project?
Avoid scams and find top-notch workers using these tips…
Hire local contractors. They’re compelled to do quality work that satisfies customers in order to stay in business.
Local contractors also are more likely to know the building code and permit rules for your area.
Most states require contractors to be licensed and insured, so ask for proof of compliance.
Check with your consumer affairs office and the Better Business Bureau for complaints against the contractor.
Solicit estimates from several contractors, but beware of any price that’s substantially lower than the others.
Finally, don’t rely on a contractor’s personality. Always check references.
