24 Restore’s fire and water restoration team in Greenville, NC is a team of cleaning, restoration and remodeling specialists backed by an on-call support team of restoration experts and we want to help. After a fire or water damage experience, the worst thing that could happen is being exploited by a remodeling specialist. 24-restore wants to help you recognize scams. Here are 3 warning signs to look out for in a contractor.
1. Big Money Upfront
It’s normal to make a down payment every once in awhile, but no contractor should expect to be paid a large amount upfront. You should expect to pay the larger amount when you see the service provided. A large down payment upfront means that they could take your money and be a no-show.
2. Random Changes in Pricing
A contractor with ill wishes could tempt you with their “unbelievable” low prices and the randomly raise the price once the contract is signed. If they do this then it’s a big warning sign that they have ill intentions. The flat rate is the flat rate.
3. Don’t Have Proper Paperwork
Though an unlicensed contractor can save you a lot of money, it can also leave you with virtually no legal rights if the job goes wrong. Paperwork and proper license protect you and the company. A company with a license means that they carry liability insurance and workman’s comp. A company that doesn’t have these licenses means that you could be responsible for any accidents or injury on your property.
