Choosing a Reputable Contractor

Sunrooms If you are ready to build a new home or remodel an existing one, you are probably wondering what to look for in a responsible contractor. Here are some tips!

  • Call the Lehigh Valley Builders Association at 610.432.4101 for help in selecting a contractor or check out our website at

  • Ask a contractor if he belongs to the Lehigh Valley Builders Association

  • Take your time. Most problems occur when consumers fail to investigate contractors carefully before hiring them

  • Ask for an insurance certificate to verify current workers' compensation and general liability insurance

  • Ask for references. Talk with others who have had work done by the contractor about his capabilities and quality or workmanship

  • Ask to see the contractor's work. Check for yourself the quality of work.

  • Make sure the contractor has a permanent business location and a good reputation with local banks and suppliers

  • Incorporate any warranties, guarantees or other promises in your written contract. Always insist on a written contract and written change orders

  • Be specific about starting and completion dates. Some delays are unavoidable and beyond the contractor's control

  • Beware of an unusually low bid or low advertised price. If a contractor cannot pay for labor, materials and overhead, you are both in trouble

  • Select a contractor you are comfortable with - one who understands your tastes and needs and with whom you can communicate easily

For all your remodeling plans, put your house in our hands!
