Tips for Finding a Reputable Contractor
Here are some ways to find information to help you choose the right contractor for your project:
- Google – Reviews on Google can be posted by any customer. The more positive reviews a contractor has, the higher they are ranked. Google searches also provide overall company information like organizations they belong to or ways they give back to the community.
- Facebook – Facebook reviews can also be posted by anyone. In addition to checking reviews, a company’s Facebook page can provide insight into the company’s culture, community involvement and more.
- Friend and Family References – The best recommendations come from friends and family members. Ask them if they have worked with a company they love. They will have first-hand experience with a company – from the first call to final payment as well as insight about any service issues.
It’s important to feel good about a contractor and to feel you can trust information you find online. Don’t assume the contractor who appears at the top of a search is the best. Consider these other sources as part of your search.
