Since a knowledgeable contractor will be able to guide you through all the planning stages of the project, finding a capable contractor should be your first order of business. It will save you both time and money. Once you’ve narrowed your search, make sure that the company carries both liability and workers compensation insurance. You don’t want to end up with a lawsuit because the company you’re dealing with does not have proper insurance. Since there are as many different types of installations as there are types of homes, the important thing is to make sure the company you choose gives you detailed information on how your project will be installed. Here are some questions that will help you evaluate your contractor:
How long have they been in business?
Are their installers certified?
Are their installers covered by Workman’s Compensation insurance?
What type of warranty do they offer on installation?
If there is a service issue, who will come back to your home to take care of it?
