Here are some points to keep in mind when hiring a home repair contractor:
1. Look at the problem carefully and analyze what needs to be done. Write down details.
2. When getting a cost estimate, ask contractor about and confirm specific details of what needs to be done.
3. Agree on price including details.
4, Before paying use “check-list” to make sure all details have been completed. If not, have contractor complete details to your satisfaction before paying.
5. Pay – Keep contact information in case a problem (or problems) crop up.
