So you’re thinking about a major home improvement project? Congratulations! When done properly, a home renovation project will make your home more enjoyable now and increase its value over time. Unfortunately, we’ve all hear the horror stories about home improvements gone bad—unfinished projects, shoddy workmanship, longer-that-expected project durations, final bills that come in higher than the quote, and more. I was shocked and embarrassed to find out that, according to Better Business Bureau statistics, contractors are often the #1 most complained about industry, even ahead of auto repair.
We’ve always done a good job and treated our customer’s right. And we’ve been able to build a nice business because of it. But I’ve noticed over the years that some consumers will choose less-than-reputable companies to do jobs for them—usually because they are quoted less money. Don’t get me wrong—I’m all for good, honest competition. But it pains me to see good folks risk their hard earned money with contractors who have no track record—or worse, a bad (but hidden) track record.
I wanted to find a way to educate consumers about how to choose a home improvement contractors. The industry standards just aren’t tough enough—just about anybody with a hammer and a pickup truck can be a contractor. That’s why I’ve pioneered a set of standards called the Successful Project Assurance Guide for homeowners. The guide gives homeowners like you a fighting chance for a successful project though a set of high standards by which to measure contactors of any type. This will allow you to judge BEFOREHAND whether or not a contractor is likely to do your job right the first time.
Before you hire any company to work on your home, make sure you consult this guide and INSIST that the company comply with EVERY SINGLE STANDARD in this guide. If you do, chances are excellent you’ll get exactly what you want out of your project and best deal for price AND value.
