HOME OWNER TIPS
Always interview three contractors with proposals.
Have them bring pictures of their work.
Ask for a reference, a person you can talk to, a person who has undergone the same type of project.
When a contractor shows up at your house, he should look as though he's going to a job interview. After all, he is. He should be trying to win you over,
and show you that your business is his life. Look at his vehicle, is it clean and organized?
The cleanliness of a contractor reflects upon his work, and he will treat your home just like his truck.
At PCH we're professionals and we show it in ourselves and our work.
Here's your chance to show, your the boss.
What is his mark-up for materials? At PCH there is no mark up. (HIDDEN COSTS)
Where will he buy materials? From France or Home Depot. (HIDDEN COSTS)
Are fasteners, nails, staples, etc, included in his proposal? (HIDDEN COSTS)
At PCH we warn you of any costs before they become hidden.
The home-owner is ultimately responsible for life and property. So protect yourself by asking for the proper documents.
GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE: If you are financing your project, the bank will require this. The industry standard is $1,000,000 for personal injury and
$2,000,000 for property damage.
Accidents do happen. Don't let them happen to you, without being covered.
WORKMAN'S COMPENSATION: It's required in the state Colorado for any and all employees. Contractors are not required to carry it for themselves.
In some Colorado counties, a contractors license is required for residential building. Be sure to check with your county.
