Those are questions that many of my clients ask me after a home inspection. So here is some advice:
- Ask for proof of insurance, and then ask for a certificate of insurance. It is easy to have a piece of paper that says they are insured, but only when they are really insured can you get a certificate.
- Research them. Do they have mostly good reviews online? any unresolved complaints with BBB?
- Don't take the lowest bidder. Take the one who charges a fair price and will do the right job.
