How to Choose a Contractor
Choosing a contractor can seem like a daunting task, but at Signature Home Services we want you to know it doesn't have to be. Here are a few tips to make your selection process easy, understandable, and quick.
Check the paperwork. Make sure the contractor you choose to work with has all of the proper licensing and insurances. Check specifically for liability insurance and worker's compensation. Ask for copies of these documents for your reference and your records.
Beware of scams. Watch out for contractors who ask for too much money up front, or for cash payments. Commit on terms that provide payments based on the work completed, when it's completed, and how it's completed.
Ignore price. Never choose a contractor solely based on price, after all you get what you pay for. With an investment as important as your home, this is one area you don't want to skimp on. If you're feeling uncomfortable or unsure about the cost of the project, don't be afraid to get bids from more than one contractor.
Get references. Quality contractors who stand behind their work will be happy to provide you with references. And quality contractors won't have an issue asking their happy customers to provide references or testimonials.
