3 Important Tips for Online Home Improvement

Finding a contractor: Focus on sites that center on consumer ratings.  There are hundreds of positive and negative testimonials from REAL customers. Don’t be fooled by sites with ads and anonymous postings that only look exceptionally positive.

Evaluating a contractor: Don’t always believe what you see on the internet. Go see current and completed jobs for yourself! There is no good online substitute for seeing someone’s work first hand.

Ordering Supplies: Only buy online if your contractor gives you the okay to do so. There are always risks involved in terms of time and shipping damage which then creates big headaches for everyone involved in the project.  Make sure whatever online retailer you use is an authorized dealer for the brands your buying!
