Tips for Choosing a Contractor

Are you planning to get your foundation repaired but don’t know where to start and who to trust? There are certain factors to keep in mind before selecting a contractor for your repair works. 

The Bid

Contractors will try to bid competitively to win your business, but if the estimate they provide seems to be extremely low don’t give your contract to them. Just remember that the contractor will do anything to make his profit. If the price is unrealistically low then there are possibilities that the contractor will compromise with the quality.


There will be certain contractors who will ask for full payment in advance. Never give your contract to such contractors.


If your deep foundation contractor is not willing to sign a legal contract, don’t give your work to that contractor. Don’t hire such a contractor.

License & Insurance

Before finalising your contractor make sure that your contractor is licensed and insured. Don’t trust an unlicensed and uninsured contractor. You will be liable for anything that happens on your property.
