Hiring a Remodeling Contractor

Hiring a contractor to work on your home is a big commitment. You need a trustworthy team who works hard at a fair price. When an emergency damages your home, you have major decisions to make in a hurry. Yet, you don't want to be the victim of an unscrupulous contractor, chasing storms. Here is how you can avoid the scams and hassle and hire a genuine, skilled remodeling contractor:


A good contractor should inspect your property as part of a free consultation. That inspection should come with no obligations or strings attached. The contractor should be thorough and account for every aspect of damage. For example, if a tree falls on your roof, there may be many other parts of the house that are damaged. Water may have seeped into the floors, or studs and walls. A good contractor will identify all your problems and know which were caused by the storm or other disaster and which were preexisting.

It is always a good idea to check with the Better Business Bureau for confirmation the contractor is a legitimate business with satisfied customers. They should provide a labor and materials estimate. If it is agreeable, then you can sign a contract. If the remodeling company is a good one, they will have experience in negotiating with insurance companies on behalf of their clients to get appropriate coverage to cover the costs of the project agreed upon in the contract. A contractor that is also an insurance specialist should have connections with public adjusters and lawyers to back up their negotiations. Ask them for this information.


This insurance expertise saves you the hassle of acting as a middleman between the contractor and your insurance company.They know what to say to get the results you need. Your security as the homeowner should always be contingent on the insurance company paying. In other words, no trustworthy contractor should ever leave you paying more than your deductible.
