If you’ve been the victim of a natural disaster, like the High Park fire, the last thing you want to worry about is being taken advantage of after you’ve survived such a traumatizing event. Check out this article for a list of good tips to help you pick out the right, qualified contractors to help you. We at Lotus Painting, a reputable Fort Collins Painting company, have picked out a few of the best tips below.
• Don’t be in a hurry. It may take a while for local contractors to get around to you and you may be frustrated. That is understandable. But scammers understand this too and will attempt to manipulate these feelings of frustration to your detriment. Don’t be pressured into making a decision.
• Find out if the company uses their own workers or if they hire individual, third-party sub-contractors. It is very important to know exactly who will be doing the work and who is responsible if something goes wrong.
• Do not hire a contractor who asks you to pay a large amount upfront before work begins. It’s best to stagger payments according to the work schedule.
