TIPS ON HIRING A CONTRACTOR
1  GET RECOMMENDATIONS

THE ABSOLUTE BEST WAY TO FIND A REPUTABLE CONTRACTOR IS TO ASK FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES AND FAMILY FOR THE NAMES OF CONTRACTORS WITH WHOM THEY HAVE HAD A GREAT EXPERANCE.


#2   VERIFY LICENSES


THEY WILL NEED TWO LICENSES FROM THE STATE OF WISCONSIN ONE IN THE BUSINESS AND ONE IN THE OWNERS NAME



#3    TRACK DOWN COMPLAINTS


CHECK WITH THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU  K&K REMODELING HAS AN [A PLUS RATING].



#4     SCREEN FOR LEGAL PROBLEMS

LOOK FOR LAWSUITS AGAINST THE CONTRACTOR ON THE WEB-SITE WISCONSIN CIRCUIT COURT


#5     VERIFY INSURANCE


ASK TO SEE A COPY OF INSURANCE OR EVEN CALL THE AGENT



#6     CONDUCT INTERVIEWS

TAKE TIME TO GET TO KNOW THE CONTRACTOR HOW LONG HAVE THEY BEEN IN BUSINESS. IF YOU DONT CARE FOR THE OWNER THAT MAKE BE A SIGN. 



#7       TURN YOUR BACK ON TEMPTATION

ITS TERRIBLY TEMPTING TO HIRE UNLICENSED OR UNINSURED CONTRACTORS. DOING THINGS BY THE BOOK COSTS MONEY, AND CONTRACTORS WHO SKIP THE FORMALITIES CAN CHARGE LESS


#8    CHECK REFERANCES




#9      VIEW THEIR WORK



#10     SIGN A CONTRACT

MAKE SURE THAT YOU AND YOUR CONTRACTOR HAVE THE SAME UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORK TO BE DONE



#11    BE CAREFUL WITH UP FRONT PAYMENTS


IF YOU HAVE REFERANCES YOU SHOULD BE OK ...   
                                                                                       AT K&K REMODELING WE ALWAYS GET HALF DOWN AT TIME OF CONTRACT. JUST BE CAREFUL IF YOU DONT HAVE FRIENDS OR FAMITY THAT HAVE USED THE CONTRACTOR


#12   BEWARE OF LOW BALL BIDS

WHEN ASKING SEVERAL CONTRACTORS TO MAKE COMPETITIVE BIDS, BE WARY OF ANT THAT COME IN FAR LOWER THAN THE REST. A LITTLE LOWER IS FINE, BUT THE TO GOOD TO BE TRUE RULE APPLIES HERE.
DUE TO NEW EPA RULES WE WILL NO LONGER WORK ON ANY HOUSES BUILT BEFORE 1978.
