3 Things To Look for When Choosing a Home Improvement Contractor
By Erica England for GuildQuality Finding the right contractor for your home improvement project can be a daunting task. Just search online for Atlanta Home Improvement contractors, and prepare to be there for a while sifting through your choices. While pricing will be top of mind when you begin your selection process, don’t forget to lookout for indicators about the level of quality associated with anyone on your list. Here are three things to help you evaluate quality: Customer Ratings and Reviews Look to see if the Atlanta contractor you’re considering has authentic customer testimonials on their website, and if their customers have written about their experience on online review sites and social media. Has the contractor been rated anywhere? You want to ensure who you choose has a good track record with important aspects of your home improvement project like value, trust, communication, and construction quality. Evidence of Quality Craftsmanship Beyond listing credentials and promoting certifications, contractors can demonstrate their quality of craftsmanship very easily by sharing photos online that illustrate the full range of their services. Outside of a contractor’s website, take a look at their profiles on sites like Facebook, Pinterest, and Houzz to get a good glimpse at what they could potentially develop for you. Recent Award Wins A contractor who has received awards recently, especially service excellence awards from credible sources, is a contractor you should put at the top of your list. Awards show that the contractor has experience with delivering exceptional results, which most likely means they’re committed to quality. Excellent customer ratings, reviews, craftsmanship, and award wins are all great ways to gauge whether or not a contractor will meet your standards. Don’t settle for anything less than a quality-minded contractor with the type of experience you need.
