Finding a Local Contractor
Do Your Research
Check with friends, neighbors, or co-workers who’ve used a local contractor
If you can, take a look at the work done and ask about their experience.
Look at sites you trust that post ratings and reviews
Do people seem to have similar experiences with a local contractor, good or bad? You also can check out a contractor’s online reputation by searching for the company’s name with words like “scam,” “rip-off,” or “complaint.”
Find out how long they’ve been in business
Look for an established company whose record and reputation you can check out.
Check for qualifications, like licensing
Many states, but not all, require contractors to be licensed and/or bonded. Licensing can range from simple registration to a detailed qualification process. If your state or locality has licensing laws, make sure the contractor’s license is current.
