Considerations for Hiring a Contractor
A change of seasons often makes us think about beginning improvements and remodeling around the house. Maybe you are considering having some trees trimmed or new landscaping installed. Or hiring a professional to paint, add a deck or even remodel your kitchen.
Planning before the project is the most important part. Careful consideration given when hiring the contractor will pay off.
- Get recommendations from friends you trust and on-line forums
- Check the contractor’s reputation with the Better Business Bureau
- Discuss your written plan for the work, and how changes will be handled
- Never pay in full at the beginning of the job
