Great Contractors Are Worth Their Weight In Gold

Good contractors can be worth their weight in gold. When it comes to finding and hiring the best general contractor for your project, you’ll want to avoid these three common mistakes:

1. Making cold calls from the phone book or a general online search – Ask friends for recommendations, check the Better Business Bureau or Guild Quality and carefully look at finished projects. Once you have a contractor on the phone, ask if the company is licensed, what kind of insurance is carried and if a guarantee can be provided in writing.

2. Waiting until the last minute – In an emergency situation, having a list of your three favorite contractors you’ve already researched will save you time and headaches.

3. Not carefully getting or reviewing bids – Ask your finalists for bids for the project you have planned, and go over those bids with a careful eye. If they aren’t providing you with identical services, ask for a rebid so you can compare apples to apples. Be aware of any bids that are extravagantly lower than others, as they might not be the best deal; instead, they could indicate lower-quality services.
