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.

    In a situation where almost everybody requires critical
    illness insurance in this way protects your family.

    This may account for around 70 percent of all
    life insurance companies you have to cope with the increasing medical charges for your own treatment.
    You need to make sure that the two critical illness insurance can be
    separated in the event of a critical illness covered.

    When I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment
    is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.

    Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?

    Appreciate it!
