How do you know which company to hire? There are many companies out there with a reputation that bears not mentioning. But, there are many other companies that pride themselves with the work they do, and the history they have in the community. Looking at the credentials of the company you are thinking of hiring can save you a lot of headaches and a lot of money.
Where can you start? Looking at a company at the Better Business Bureau is the first step you can take. Look at the complains, and whether they were resolved satisfactorily, and in a timely matter. But, most importantly look at the kind of complains people had and the issues involved with such company.
Google the company. There are many people out there that will leave a nasty comment about a company because they are not quite happy with the results. But, if the company has many more good comments than bad ones, or only that bad comment, call them and see for yourself. Talking to them on the phone, or personally is the only way to go.
Recommendations from friends and family members are possibly the best way to go about hiring a company to do any job around the home. You can look at the workmanship, talk to them about pricing, cleanliness, and punctuality and make the decision then.
