How to Avoid Contractor Scams and Get the Best Home Improvement Results

Hiring a contractor to work on your home can be a daunting task. It's important to do your research and take the time to evaluate the contractors you are considering. At Next Modular, we pride ourselves on finding the most qualified people who truly care about the work they do. We cost less because we hire local subcontractors that we know and trust.

Plus, you'll often find the Next Modular owner on the job site, who will personally take care of the details of your project. To ensure you get the best results from your home improvement project, it's important to stay 10 steps ahead. Document the schedule of events and keep documentation, including contracts, supply receipts, and canceled checks. This will help you remember what was agreed upon in case there are any issues down the line.

Be aware of contractors who may try to overcharge you or use lower grade materials than promised. Ask questions if something seems wrong or off. If a contractor withdraws the down payment and fails to complete the work described in the contract, they could be guilty of fraud. It's also important to make sure that all contractors have sufficient insurance.

If they don't, they could put a lien on your property if they are not paid for their work. If you have any problems with a contractor, try to contact them personally first. If that fails, online review platforms or social media sites could be helpful in discussing your negative experience with any contractor. Finally, take advice from home improvement expert Danny Lipford to learn how to select the right contractor for your next job and avoid getting ripped off.
