4 Benefits of Hiring an Experienced Contractor for Your Home

Jan 05, 2015

Deciding to do some home improvement in Albuquerque and the surrounding areas is easy. The tough part is selecting the contractor to trust with your project. With so many remodelers clamoring for your attention, how can you tell which ones are reliable?

Some homeowners go with their instinct, but we think your list of contractor qualifications must have something other than gut feel. We suggest hiring experienced contractors. Here are four reasons why:

1. Established Presence. If your contractor has been around for a long time, they should have already established a reputation in the field. Homeowners, manufacturers, and other remodelers will know who they are and how they work. If they’re reliable, you’ll easily know from their peers.

2. Quality Work. Surviving in the tough home improvement industry often comes with having an impressive line of products and services. This doesn’t just mean a sizeable selection of projects offered by the contractor. For services to consistently attract and impress clients, the contractor must exhibit excellent-quality workmanship and a high level of professionalism.

Tip: To better evaluate the quality of your contractor’s work, get them to provide you with client references. Call these up and ask for detailed information regarding the contractor’s services so you’ll know what to expect.

3. Sufficient Credentials. When a contractor has been in business for a considerable amount of time, they will know how the industry works. They would have secured the necessary state licenses and other permits. Also important in gaining customers’ trust is insurance. Contractors who are already familiar with the industry know not to skimp out on workers’ compensation, personal liability, and property damage insurance.

4. Decent Records. Most established businesses are registered with state boards and contractor organizations. Entities like the Better Business Bureau and the Consumer Affairs Office often carry records of a contractor’s history of consumer complaints, as well as that of disputes and how these are resolved. If your contractor is experienced and reliable, chances are there’ll be fewer things to see in these records.

Tip: For a more consumer-oriented perspective, it may be a good idea to check your contractor on Angie’s List. Ratings and reviews are written by customers themselves and are often surprisingly detailed.
