What Everyone Should Know About Contractor Scams

Are you worried about contractor scams?

Are you afraid of wasting your money on a contractor who won’t perform the job to your 100% satisfaction?

Are you wondering where you can find a qualified contractor in Ann Arbor?

At CMR Mechanical, we want to ensure your families safety when you’re choosing a contractor. Please know that you’re not alone when it comes to contractor scams.

One common contractor scam includes paying for work that’s unnecessary. If you’re unsure whether the work that’s recommended by a contractor is truly needed, seek out a second or sometimes a third opinion if you think it’s necessary.

Another common contractor scam includes paying an advance for work that never gets completed. Never let a contractor whom you’ve never met take advantage of you. If they require payment up front, be sure to get a written agreement that can help protect you if your contractor fails to complete the work or goes missing.

To avoid getting scammed yourself, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recommends the following for hiring someone to work on your home:

  • Get recommendations from friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers, insurance agents or claims adjusters.
  • Deal only with licensed and insured contractors. Check with the local Better Business Bureau and Home Builders Association to see if complaints have been lodged against any contractor you’re considering.
  • Get a written estimate that includes any oral promises the contractor made. Remember to ask if there’s a charge for an estimate before allowing anyone into your home.
  • Take your time about signing a contract. Ask for explanations for price variations, and don’t automatically choose the lowest bidder.
