You Get What You Pay For
There is currently a problem with home owners complaining about contractors or handymen walking off the job and not finishing their home remodeling project.
Remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for"? Beware of fly by night contractors, they will actually purchase insurance, receive a certificate of insurance and then cancel. They then use that worthless certificate and pass it around as though they have insurance. Call the insurance company listed on the certificate, if no answer or do not have current active insurance.... WALK AWAY... and report them to your state attorney's office because they are also committing insurance fraud.
Do not assume the cheap bid is the best deal. For honest/reliable and in business for the long haul will not be the cheapest. They have employees, insurance, worker comp, utilities, company vehicles, benefits, and a host of other items to pay so that they can not only offer great service, great projects that finish on time and budget but also can fix mistakes and be there when you need them to be. It cost money and the contractors that rip people off have the ability to be the cheap guy.. but trust me there is no cheap when the project does not finish, and you pay them money and they don't even return.
Your home is your largest expense and if your contractor burns your house down, even though it was an accident, they have to have insurance to protect your asset. It is in your best interest to make sure they have insurance. Make sure and verify they have a license and are following state requirements. You can call and should do so.. and if something is not checking out... WALK AWAY.
What I'm surprised about is how people can go into your local retail store and not once ask for a manager to negotiate price. They have 200-300 % markup and no one complains near what they do about home improvement cost. Honest Reliable Remodeling Contractors basically charge materials, labor, overhead and if they are lucky at the end of a project walk away with 7-10% profit. The more you talk them down in price the more something has to give. There is no free and the cheaper the bid... the added risk of the horror stories you will experience. Remember just the cost of supplies hasn't changed and if they are not making money after buying supplies they will walk off of your job and you will be stuck!
Before you hire someone to do your Home Renovation Check Contractors License:
* Check the state-issued license of all potential contractors. Make sure the license is current and active by calling 850.487.1395 or visiting www.MyFloridaLicense.com. Beware of fake licenses and ask to see multiple forms of ID.
* Be aware that an occupational license does not entitle a person or company to offer state licensed contracting.
