Hiring a contractor.

Part 2 

Be wary of today-only sales pitches, this is a sales tactic designed to get you to sign a contract or put down a deposit, without giving you the opportunity to do your research.

Get references from recent customers.  Speak with other property owners who had work done recently and ask what they did or did not like about a particular contractor.  A reputable contractor will be happy to provide you with client references.

Get everything in writing. Make sure all verbal promises end up in the written contract as we;\ll as detailed description of the work, the cost of materials, start and completion of job. Also contract should include specific deposits and payment schedule and guarantees for the quality of work

and materials.
