10 Things To Know Before Hiring A Contractor

You always hear the nightmare stories of contractors taking advantage of the consumer, but you almost never hear the true story. Most home owners almost never do a background check on the contractor that they are going to hire because the price was a great deal! Furthermore, most consumers don't know what a good contract is and end up signing incomplete contracts that are missing a lot of information whether intentional or not. So when this extra work arises, the contractor will charge you for it and the fight begins...

Do Your Homework Before Signing A Contract

1. Always hire "licensed Contractors".

2. Don't sign a contract on the spot.

3. Ask for a State Contractors License Number.

4. Ask to see a Drivers license and log the number.

5. Never pay Cash for a down payment.

6. Don't allow commencement of work without a signed contract by both parties.

7. Always do a background check on your Contractor.

8. Review your contract thoroughly.

9. Execute Lien releases throughout the project.

10. If a deal sounds to good to be true, than it probably is.
