Because of the economy, many consumers are remodeling their home instead of buying a new one.
When hiring a remodeling contractor, here are some important considerations:
· Make sure your contractor is properly licensed, bonded and insured.
· Be skeptical of contractors who come to your door unsolicited. They may be fly-by-night operators who are gone as soon as you discover a problem with their work.
· Get at least three written estimates – and don’t automatically choose the lowest bidder.
· Beware of contractors who ask you to pay for the entire job up front. And, never pay with cash.
Remodeling Contractors are one of the most inquired about industries at the BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, so any homework should start with the BBB.
