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.

    I know this if off topic but I'm lookibg into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?

    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any
    tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

    I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a
    blog that's both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for
    something relating to this.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was
    hacked and I ended up losing many months
    of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
