Finding a Reputable Contractor
The right home improvements can add significant value to your home. However, it’s important to find a reliable contractor, and one of the best ways to do that is to check with your neighbors and family to see if they can recommend someone. Browsing contractor profiles online can also help you to choose a reputable company, and it’s a good idea to pay attention to posted reviews and comments by previous customers. Your local Better Business Bureau may also have recommendations or can advise on contractors that you should avoid. A small, locally based and well established contractor may offer more personal service than a large national company. Meeting with a contractor ahead of the actual work is always a good idea; many homeowners are able to get a feel for whether they want to work with someone, and it’s also the chance to get a written estimate.
