A Word of Advice from the Building Inspector
Always obtain quotes from a minimum of three contractors. Check to make sure the contractors have the necessary licenses, insurance, etc. Have the contractor supply you with a list of references. Check out these references, don't ignore them. They can be an excellent source of information about the contractor. Check with the Better Business Bureau and the Massachusetts Attorney General to see if any complaints have been filed against the contractor in the past. Then make your best decision from the information you collect. If you follow these few steps you may avoid costly delays or problems in the future.
