Week 4: Workmanship
In order to get the job done right the first time, competence is key. Any good home improvement company will have their installation crew professionally trained and up to date with the latest home improvement practices. They will also provide and lifetime warranty and service for your product. Here are some factors to look for:
A contractor with good workmanship should be proud to show customers pictures of his work. Pictures of completed jobs should always be available for the customers viewing as proof of quality. If photo’s are not available, they most like are not worth showing and you should look elsewhere.
A contractor with good workmanship will never over-inflate initial price quotes to leave room for a discount. Your contractor should be secure enough in their work & pricing to give you an honest a fair price.
Contractors with good workmanship should always offer a 100% money back guarantee. It will protect the customer against potential problems they might experience with a contractor. Should something go wrong with your home improvement project that cannot be fixed through reasonable measures, the contractor should be responsible for refunding your money and restoring your home to its original condition at no additional cost. A confident contractor will have no issue with providing customers this guarantee.
Lowest Price Guarantee
With a good contractor, you will always get the lowest price possible – guaranteed. If you can find a company offering the same products and services for a lesser price, a contractor should match that price. Price is only one component of the value equation, so its critical that all price comparisons are done on an apples to apples basis. The contractor is there to help you, not rip you off!
A home improvement contractor should always stand behind the work they’ve done by offering a lifetime warranty. A warranty should cover every possible defect in workmanship or materials for the life of the home. Some warranties contain limitations so always ask for the warranty details to make sure you are buying from the best contractor!
