Do you want to avoid getting SCREWED when hiring a contractor?
Use the following SECRET contractor hiring guide tips below.
Hack #1 Write out exactly what you want done and what you expect to be done on a piece of paper. Give this to each of the contractors who comes to give you a bid. Don’t assume contractor will do what you think he should do. Get FREE bids below.
Hack#2 Make as many product selections as possible before the contractors come to give bids. Allowances created by contractors for products can be low and used as a trick to keep bid prices low.
Hack#3 Be sure the contractor can prove he’s got years of experience, at least ten, and can prove he knows what he’s doing.
Hack #4 Do NOT pay any money in advance unless your job requires SPECIAL ORDER materials. Contractors don’t pay their help in advance, they don’t pay for regular materials in advance, so why should you pay them in advance? Only pay for work done that’s satisfactory. Do NOT pay the last 15% of the job until ALL WORK is complete and to your satisfaction. No excuses ever.
Hack #5 Be sure you put everything the contractor says he’ll do in writing in the contract. NEVER trust the spoken word. A professional contractor will NEVER be offended if you ask her/him to put something in writing.
