Beware of Fly-By-Night Contractors

Anyone can give you a bid. That doesn't mean they know what they are doing. Anyone can give you a bid. That doesn't mean they know what they are doing.

Unfortunately, it is the time of year when the Montana Department of Labor starts to get a flood of complaints from consumers about unsavory contractors.  

Yesterday, the D.O.L released this announcement

They are advising Montanans to do the following:

• Verify the contractor is registered with the State of Montana
• Check with the State Construction Contractor Registration Unit to be sure that the contractor is in compliance
• Find out if the contractor belongs to an industry association
• Check for proper insurance (Liability, Workers’ Compensation)
• Call references; look at past projects
• Have a contract detailing every aspect of the project including how and when paid
• Communicate. Assure each of you have a complete understanding of expectations
• Visually inspect each part of the project

We agree that choosing the right contractor can make all the difference.  We also know that communication is the key to a successful remodel or new construction project.   Ask your contractor lots of questions and make sure you communicate with them on a very regular basis.

    Make a separate column for deals and promotions that do not affect the premium price,
    such as vanishing deductible rewards and bonus checks for having a clean driving
    record. This helps avoid any potential problems at lease end.
    Some important things to remember about this policy is that it only covers
    the costs of an accident for the other party if you are the cause of the accident.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There's no doubt that that you should write more on this issue,
    it might not be a taboo matter but generally people don't speak about such subjects.
    To the next! Cheers!!

    I'm not sure why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
