Safety signs designed and created by Artist, Amos Hummell.
1. Search for a reputable contractor. Word of mouth is always the best place to start.
2. Licensed and Insured: Make certain that your contractor is properly licensed by the state in which the work is to be performed and the type of work that is to be performed. Having proper insurance is also extremely important. The contractor should carry the following types of insurance:
A ) Workers Compensation Insurance
B ) General Liability Insurance
C ) Builders Bond (may not be required in your state)
D ) Builders Risk Insurance (General Contractor)
3. Ask for references and visit a current job site.
4. When you see a job site, go early in the morning or after hours. Aside from evaluating the type of work the contractor is capable of, look to see if the job is clean and free of debris. The ability to keep a clean safe job site is indicative of the professionalism of the contractor.
5. How long has the contractor been in business? The longer the better. Five (5) years is a good start. This will eliminate the "fly by nights".
6. Pin the contractor down to a reasonable time frame to complete the job, and ask for a schedule. Some materials require extra time to obtain. A good contractor will have a relationship with local suppliers and have a handle on the timing of materials to be obtained.
7. Resources: Ask around about the contractor. The Local Building Department, Local Lumber Yards, Hardware Stores, and Tool Suppliers are often a wealth of information.
Look for a builder and contractor with GOODWILL and GOOD CREDIT.
