When starting a project in your home that requires a professional finding the right one may seem like an impossible task. Whether you found mold in the basement or are in need of repairs after a huge storm, there are a countless number of companies out there that say they can help. How do you know you are making the right choice in who you hire?

There are a number of questions that should be asked before making a decision. 

  • How long have you been working in the industry?
  • Answer you want: Long enough to have at least 20 references that can be contacted.
  • Do you have insurance?
  • Answer you want: Yes, while no technician will intentionally cause more damage to your home, things happen and it is important to make sure you are covered. 
  • Do you have a list of references that I can contact?
  • Answer you want: Yes, “Past performance is a great indicator of what future performance will be.” Hearing from a past customer could give you insight either to hire or stay away from the company in question. 
  • What is the projected timeline for the project?
  • Answer you want: A specified length of time, not knowing this answer could mean the project will go on much longer than it should.
