Tips for Choosing a Reputable Remodeling Contractor
With the number of foreclosed or bank-owned properties floating around out there, I often speak with folks who are preparing to embark on a renovation project.
Unfortunately, with a rise in remodeling comes a flood of disreputable contractors looking to cash in. I do my best to protect people by providing referrals to reputable contractors, but there are plenty of people out there I don’t get a chance to talk to.
If you know someone who is about to undertake a major renovation project, I urge you to share this excellent article published by the Federal Trade Commission, "Home Sweet Home Improvement." It includes a PDF guide your friends and family will find helpful.
The guide covers:
· The types of home improvement specialists
· How disreputable contractors operate
· Questions to ask contractors
· How to check references
· Understanding payment options
· The "Home Improvement" loan scam
· ...and several other useful points
Do you need a referral to a contractor or two? Are you in the market for a property to fix-up and call your own (or use as an investment property)? I’d be happy to help. Give me a call or shoot me a message today
