Hiring a Contractor
The state of your foundation affects your entire home, so you need to be confident that you are working with skilled, capable professionals whenever you need repairs. If you need to hire a contractor to perform foundation repairs or any other repairs on your house, it’s important to know how to pick the best one in your area. Here are some tips for evaluating the qualifications of a contractor so you can determine whether they are right for you.
Look for an established contractor. The longer a company has been in business in your area, the more likely they are to be trustworthy. Look for a company that performs a wide range of services, so that you can be sure they will be able to handle any issues that arise during your project.
Look for their credentials. Make sure that the company you work with is fully licensed and bonded to do contracting work in your area, and that they know how to obtain any permits that will be necessary. You should also make certain that the contractor you work with is fully insured—including personal liability, worker’s compensation, and property damage coverage.
Check their past work. You should work with a contractor who has extensive experience with the type of foundation repair you need. You can do a Google search for online reviews of the contractor you are considering, and you might also look at their website to see testimonials from past clients.
