Finding an Honest Home Improvement Contractor

Finding an Honest Home Improvement Contractor

Posted by Billy Peshke on Monday, August 15th, 2016 at 12:07pm.

You can’t call yourself a dentist unless you have specific hard-earned credentials. Just about anyone, however, can hang a shingle and call himself a home improvement contractor. That’s why choosing a reputable one is so difficult. 

Here are some tips: 

  • Find out if he or she is truly in business full-time. A part-time or occasional contractor may not have the experience necessary to do a great job. 
  • Ask about licenses and other credentials. Some contractors have accreditation's from professional and trade associations. 
  • Review his or her project portfolio. A reputable contractor will have photos and other evidence of work completed for similar clients. 
  • Check online for reviews. If there are more than five poor reviews within the past three years — that’s a red flag. 
  • Ask for references. Then, call at least one.

 Finally, the best contractors are those that get recommended by people you trust. Looking for a contractor recommendation? Call the Peshke Real Estate team today. Billy Peshke can be reached at 403-466-8353 and Yasin Peshke at 403-681-0319
