There is no one thing that makes a contractor great. Instead your contractor must possess a variety of skills to make your home renovation a success. This decision will affect your home for decades to come. Blue Fox recommends looking for a home pro who scores high marks in these key areas:
Does the contractor answer the phone, return your messages, and show up on time? If they can’t keep pace with these simple courtesies while trying to win your business, find someone who can. When you do meet, does the contractor listen to your concerns? Is he capable of identifying how he’ll address what matters most to you? This is the key to your project running smoothly and meeting your goals.
Get it in Writing.
We wish agreements could be made with a friendly handshake. But these days you’ve got to be sure the work being done is spelled out in detail. A solid contract includes documentation of any deposit you’ve given, the product choices you’ve made, cleanup and debris removal.
Virtual offices make appearing “local” easier than ever. Be savvy and avoid storm chasers. If we experience severe weather, don’t get taken advantage of by an aggressive door-to-door team. A truly local company will stand out as different. Look for a local BBB accreditation, reviews online, and maybe kids in the same schools as yours!
