How to Select a Contractor
If you’ve spotted telltale signs of foundation damage in your home, you should schedule a professional inspection as soon as possible. But you also want to take time to find the right person for the job. Unfortunately, there are people who make a living scamming unsuspecting homeowners, taking money for repairs and never completing them or performing sub-par work and disappearing.
Following are some key questions you should ask before hiring a foundation repair professional:
How much experience do you have?
Ask how many years of hands-on foundation repair experience a contractor has.
Where can I find your reviews or references?
A reputable contractor or company should be comfortable with you asking for reviews or references. You should also check with the Better Business Bureau in your area to determine whether any complaints have been filed against the person or company you’re considering for the job.
Are you insured?
Ask for an insurance certificate, and examine it carefully to make sure it’s current.
Do you guarantee your work?
Ask about the specific terms of the company’s warranty, and never hire anyone who refuses to offer a warranty.
Do you provide a written estimate?
Anyone performing work on your home should provide an estimate in writing before work begins.
Do you provide a written contract?
You should never hire anyone who won’t offer you a contract. And when reviewing the contract, make sure the projected start and end dates for the repairs are clearly outlined.
How long have you been in business?
The foundation repair industry is full of companies that come and go. Longevity is important; a warranty is only good as long as the company that issued it is still in business.
Do you offer financing?
If you can’t pay for the entire repair at once, financing becomes a priority. Not every repair company offers this option, so this is a key question to ask at the beginning of the process.
