I'm a new homeowner and would like to have some home repairs done - some are smaller projects and some a bit larger. Any advice on how to go about finding a reliable, trustworthy, and qualified general contractor for home repairs? What sort of questions should I ask. How do improve my chances of selecting a contractor whose on "the up-and-up" and won't try to take me (or my wallet) for a ride? Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Depending on which state you live in,there may be a consumer reporting agency,better business bureau,or licensing agency which tracks complaints lodged against contractors.Word of mouth is probably the most popular way of finding someone,especially for smaller jobs.Look in your area for work being done,stop by and talk with the homeowner and the company.There are no guarantees here but the more information and references you can get,the better.
