Hiring A Contractor : Building A Home :
Renovating A Home : Links Library

There are many experienced and reliable contractors working in your community - highly skilled professionals who do business the right way.

But not all contractors play by the same rules. Some cut corners to offer lower prices as long as nothing is written down and you pay them in cash. This type of "under the table" business arrangement can create significant risks for you. You need to be aware of these risks, and know how to control them, before you make a hiring decision.

Your best protection? Hire a contractor with a solid reputation for doing good work, and have a comprehensive written contract in place before the work begins.

To learn more about the risks of doing business with underground contractors, and how to protect yourself, visit the Hire a Contractor Web site.
