Don’t Pay for Free Inspections

Americans spend billions of dollars on home improvement projects every year, making home improvement a real target for fraud. All too often fly-by-night, one man operations prey on uninformed homeowners. Whether it’s coming up with obscure last-minute fees or cutting corners on the job, homeowners have to be careful about who they hire to work on their homes these days.

When it comes to repairing your foundation, you’ve probably already prepared yourself for a significant financial investment––so why pay for the inspection too?! A couple of simple tips can help ensure your chosen contractor is reputable and has your best interests in mind.

Check Their Online Reputation

First things first. It’s 2013 and all the information you need to make an informed basement contractor decision is right at your fingertips. Websites like Google, Yelp, and Angie’s List provide excellent resources you can use to establish the credibility of a particular local basement contractor.

Free Inspection or No Inspection

Nowadays, smart companies know that the consumer is in control. The days of paid inspections are long gone, and companies need to consistently deliver value to stay ahead of the competition. If you come across a contractor who charges a fee for an inspection, kindly say “no thank you” and move onto the dozen more waiting in line with free inspections.

Remember, you’re in control. Don’t let a contractor sucker you into paying for something that countless other reputable contractors offer for free!
