Dont Be A Victim

As a homeowner, the hardest part of adding a new addition to your home (besides raising the investment) is selecting the best contractor for the job, as there are more contractors and builders available than ever before. The following tips are to help you choose a contractor that will follow through on promises and build an addition that you will be proud of.
Building an addition or remodeling your home is a hefty investment that can increase your home’s value and raise your quality of life. However, there is a breed of unscrupulous contractors that make money by taking advantage of inexperienced and ill-informed homeowners. These crooks will promise you anything to part you from your hard earned money, and leave you with nothing to show for it.
Hiring the best contractor for a job is so important to preserving the integrity of your project that particular emphasis should be placed on finding a contractor that you can trust. Contractors are a-dime-a-dozen nowadays; use the following tips to hire a contractor that has the quality of work and the quality of character to see a project to the end and produce the best work possible.
1. Stay away from a contractor if you cannot verify their name, address, telephone number and other credentials.  These fly-by-night contractors often spell trouble. Don’t risk giving them a deposit to have them suddenly fall off the radar.
2. A huge red flag should be anytime a contractor or salesperson tries to pressure you into signing a contract. An honest professional would never use such a tactic, and attempts to coerce a prospective client are very telling in regards to how they will follow through on the promises made in a contract.
3. Be cautious if a contractor cannot (or will not) provide you with references, and/or allow you to speak with previous clients. For the professional contractor, their reputation is everything. Client references are their best endorsement and are gladly provided. Ask yourself; do you want a contractor who tries to hide the work they did on your house, after completed?
4. Be leery of a contractor who provides you with out-of-date information that is no longer valid. 

5. Anytime a contractor asks you to pay a size able amount of money for the project in advance, or to pay cash instead of check, could mean the contractor is in financial trouble. Not only is it horribly unprofessional to do business this way, it means that they may be more inclined to cut corners as they’ve already been paid for the job.
6. And finally, by far, the biggest remodeling pitfall is choosing your contractor based solely on who offers the lowest price. Price itself is not indicative of quality, but a contractor that aggressively undercuts every other quote or consultation you’ve heard should be approached with the utmost caution. Quite often they are doing so because they have no intention of fully fulfilling their promise.
