Top 5 Tips for Homeowners

  • 1. VERIFY INSURANCE
  • Workers Compensation Insurance protects you if a worker is injured on your property.  Liability Insurance protects you if any of your property is damaged.  It's common to ask a contractor for their insurance agent to provide a certificate of insurance or to be an additional insured on a large project. (If their insurance is not up-to-date YOU could be liable.)

  • 2. GET IT IN WRITING
  • All warranties and estimates must be in detail.  It will help protect you as a consumer and avoid misunderstandings.

  • 3. CHECK REFERENCES
  • Does the company stand behind warranties?  Did the contractor listen to you when there was a problem?  Do they actually show up on time?  Would previous customers use them again? If they cannot provide references, there's a reason why!

  • 4. HOW LONG HAS THE COMPANY BEEN IN BUSINESS? 
  • Warranties are only as good as the company providing them.  If they go out of business, in many cases so does your warranty.

  • 5. DON'T SIGN ANYTHING - UNTIL YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE.
  • Be sure to ask questions and clarify everything in writing.  Taking time to ensure that you and the contractor have clear expectations will ensure a smooth and problem free project.
