With the economy just now beginning to recover, many companies and contractors went out of business over the past few years. With the industry beginning to pick up be sure to take account a few very important questions:
- Are contractors taking shortcuts you may not know about?
- Are contractors more than ever cheating customers in order to save time & money?
- Are contractors paying their material suppliers on time or even at all?
- Are contractors delivering the high-quality products and fine craftsmanship they have been promised?
If you answered yes to any of these questions above, sadly in many cases you would be correct. Due to the hard times over the last few years with the economic down fall, many contractors began taking shortcuts to cut cost. Cheaper prices but cheating the homeowner of the high-quality materials and fine craftsmanship promised. A cheap job cost should often be a red flag, especially in this industry. Consumers need to think about where the discounts are coming from and realize more than likely, the cheaper price is coming directly out of the quality of their project and investment.
