Are you a risk taker?
Anyone saying yes to that question doesn’t mind saying yes to choosing the cheapest contractor for remodeling and installations. Some contractors prey on homeowners just on price alone. Because homeowners are looking to find something within their budget, they grab that tempting deal without asking additional questions. The contractor claims he works for a popular company and is here to ‘install your ‘new countertop’. They ask for the total cost upfront, and you hand it all over. They ‘fix’ the countertop and leave. When it’s time to place items on top of it the whole thing breaks. You call the company and ask to speak to the ‘contractor.’ The company tells you that this person doesn’t work for them.
Was being cheap worth it?
Some won’t even go that far to prove they’re not worth your time. After asking for money upfront, some contractors will make up an excuse like ‘I got to gather my supplies,’ drive off and never come back. Other contractors will ask for all the money upfront, start the installation, leave and never come back. Do you like the rush of knowing that you will have to pay more money to do the job correctly AND fix their mess? Fixing their mess is not just the botched remodeling or installation; it’s also about cleaning up the dirty work area and other debris they left behind. This doesn’t begin to explain The Many Risks You Take Hiring the Lowest Bidder.
