Tips for Choosing a Reputable Remodeling Contractor

(Published on - 10/12/2016 3:56:46 PM)

With the number of foreclosed or bank-owned properties floating around out there, Realty Executives Midwest has worked with a lot of clients who are preparing to embark on a renovation project.

Unfortunately, with a rise in remodeling comes a flood of disreputable contractors looking to cash in. I do my best to protect people by providing referrals to reputable contractors, but there are plenty of people out there I don’t get a chance to talk to.

If you know someone who is about to undertake a major renovation project, I urge you to share this excellent article published by the Federal Trade Commission, "Home Sweet Home Improvement." It includes a PDF guide your friends and family will find helpful.

The guide covers:

  • The types of home improvement specialists
  • How disreputable contractors operate
  • Questions to ask contractors
  • How to check references
  • Understanding payment options
  • The "Home Improvement" loan scam
  • ...and several other useful points

Here’s the link to the article on the FTC website:
