Remodeling or Renovations - get FREE estimates
This is a premium network of remodeling contractors, who carry out bathroom remodeling, kitchen remodeling, attic remodeling and basement remodeling projects. Homeowners use this service to find local contractors for all of their home improvement projects.
They are a referral network providing contractor access to homeowners seeking home improvement goods and services. Contractors are reviewed and approved by Renovation Experts to ensure they adhere to quality standards.
They strongly recommend that homeowners follow at a minimum some basic steps to protect themselves even when they recommend hiring a contractor in their network. The Federal Trade Commission recommends in part the following things:
Check out the contractor with your local or state consumer protection officials.
Ask the contractor for customer references who have projects similar to yours.
Ask for a copy of the contractor's current insurance certificates and licenses, if required.
Get written estimates from several firms. Make sure bids are based on identical project specifications.
Get all guarantees, warranties and promises in writing.
Agree on start and completion dates, and have them written into the contract.
