Red Flags To Look For In Construction Contractors

With something as important as building construction, you should take your time and do your due diligence when hiring your contractors. Making the wrong choice could result in disastrous short and long-term consequences for your business, costing you more money and setting you back on your goals! In order to separate the good contractors from the bad ones, you should have an idea of what traits set off the alarm bells. There are plenty of discernable red flags to see in contractors before you ever make the decision to hire. We’ll explain the most noteworthy ones below!

Lack Of Specifics In The Contract

When your contractor hands you the paperwork to outline what you can expect from the job, you should be looking for as much detail as possible. The best construction contractors won’t leave you with any lingering questions prior to signing the paperwork, so the specifics they outline should be as detailed as possible. This should include the materials they’re going to use, the timetable for construction, and the measurements and specifications of your building among other things. If these aspects aren’t outlined in their contract, it’s time to look elsewhere for your needs!

You Can’t Verify Their License

Arguably the most important thing you can do before hiring a construction contractor is to do a background check on them. The main thing you want to highlight here is their construction license. All licenses are publicly available to view and identify, so you should make sure that your contractor’s license is legitimate before you hire them. Make sure that you can connect their license and identified name to the specific contractor you hire; there’s always a possibility that they could be using someone else’s!

They Have Bad Or No Reviews

A great way to verify if your contractor is worth their salt or not is taking a look at their reviews across the web. Do they have a lot of negative reviews, or possibly none at all? If you can answer yes to this question, it’s a good sign that they aren’t the right contractor to hire! The best contractors will have verified, solid reviews that give a vote of confidence to the work that they provide. If they don’t have these reviews, it’s time to look the other way!
