There are many important factors you should consider when hiring a general contracting service. Similarly, there are many red flags you must watch out for as well.
Sadly, there are many scammers out there.
Some companies only care about their profit and aren’t as concerned with their customer’s well-being as they should be. When you’re on the lookout for a contractor to perform work in your home, you should exercise caution and good judgment. Do as much research and background checking as you can.
The best place to start is by asking friends and family for referrals. That way, you know the people you’re hiring come highly recommended. The feedback you get from friends, family, neighbors, or other trusted sources will be much more accurate and honest than anything you’ll read online or in promotional materials for a company. Those reviews are often biased and hand-selected by the company to make themselves look good. By asking for referrals from people who have no investment in the company, you can ensure you’re getting an honest account.
