What Questions to Ask Your Home Remodeling Contractor?
There are generally two ways to go about doing things: the right way and the wrong way. Unfortunately, too many of us fall victim to having things done the wrong way by home contractors who claim to be professionals.
There’s nothing quite like having a good contractor at hand. After all, when you consider that the work being done is to your home, which is arguably your biggest financial asset, then you want to know that things are being done correctly. That’s why, even for routine work like plumbing, painting and general repairs, it’s worth your while to make sure that your contractor is a Certified Green Professional, CGP and a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, CAPS Contractor.
These certified contractors are trained in energy efficiency and flexible design, which means when they carry out work or repairs on your home, it’ll be done so that you end up saving energy. And that translates into lower utility bills for you and an increased home comfort level.
