Top 5 Tips to Hiring a Los Angeles General Contractor
There are volumes written telling us, the Los Angeles home owners, just how we should go about hiring a Los Angeles contractor. However, we must make our own decisions, and then, we must pray to our Angels for their help.Here are some suggestions as to just what we need to do:
- Make sure they have been in business at least 5 years
- Make sure they are listed with the BBB.
- Check at least 3 references and one should be a recent reference
- Check for Liability Insurance
- Make sure your general contractor is not a one man shop
Contract: GET IT IN WRITING! Make sure that you read it carefully.Liability Insurance: You do not want to be sued for your contractor's employee falling off of a ladder on your property. Check with your home owner's insurance to make sure that you are covered. Building Permits: For any job that can be seen from the street, you need permits from the City. You do not want a City Inspector stopping by, unannounced, just to see what you are doing.
In conclusion: Our relationships with **Los Angeles** contractors can be very rewarding, but only if we do our research and handle our end of the bargain correctly. Good Luck, and may the Angeles be with you!
