Do the research before hiring a contractor

    Finding a contractor for your home’s renovations can be difficult.  The Powell Group at Keller Williams of the Western Upstate of South Carolina has some tips for you to avoid running into problems later.

    Finding a good contractor is important because they will be in your home until the job is done
    A good contractor who use their tools well and efficiently to do the best job

    Firstly, do your homework.  The Powell Group can refer you to several people with whom we have worked.  But, you can also talk to friends and family.  Don’t just pick one and run with it.  Pick someone who many people deem reputable.

    But, don’t just pick one person.  Create a list of contractors you might entertain working for you.  Just because someone gives you a low price doesn’t mean they should be the “winner.”  Don’t forget the old saying, “You get what you pay for.”  On the other hand, the most expensive contractor could charge high just to make a huge profit.  Picking someone in the middle might be your best bet.

    When you finally find someone, don’t just rely on what others say.  Find out about them yourself.  Find out the details of the reputation and their reliability.  Don’t just take other people’s word for it.  After all, this is your house – not theirs.  So, make sure you are happy with them before they start the renovations.

    Lastly, make sure they have all the required credentials.  Every contractor must follow certain rules governed by federal and state authorities.  Whether it be licenses or other documents, contractors are supposed to have them.  Check to make sure they do.

    The Powell Group encourages you to make an educated choice on picking a contractor.  Our team members have the information that can help you decide on one that will help you get the job done.
