If you’ve spent a lot of time looking for a Maryland remodeling contractor or home improvement contractor in your area, you know how time-consuming it can be to find a great company. Fortunately, there are a few things all good contractors have in common.
Shanco Companies should be your contractor for your next home improvement project because we:
Have proper insurance: It’s very important that the home improvement or remodeling contractor you hire is insured. If an uninsured worker gets hurt on your property, you could be in big trouble! Make sure you get a copy of both their workers’ compensation and general liability insurance. Also, your contractor should maintain a current license with the state home improvement commission.
*Shanco provides information on workers’ compensation and general liability insurance and provides a copy of our license to every customer.
Have a physical address: Look for a physical address on the contractor’s website. If the contractor doesn’t have a permanent place of business, be skeptical. Many fly-by-night contractors and scammers operate out of their trucks via cell phones and aren’t available when there is a warranty issue.
*Shanco maintains a fully staffed office, and we’re available from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. every week day. Our office is located in Gaithersburg, on Airpark Road.
Offer warranties: There are two types of warranties. Product warranties are provided by the manufacturer and protect against defects in the actual materials. Just as important are workmanship warranties. These warranties protect against faulty installation and are offered by the contractor.
*Ask Shanco about manufacturers we offer and their warranties, as well as workmanship warranties!
Have experience: This doesn’t mean a company who’s been around for just a few years isn’t good, but there’s something to be said for a contractor with an established track record. It reflects their quality of work and service.
*Shanco has been in business for over 20 years and is among the best in the home improvement and remodeling industry.
Provides detailed information: Does the contractor provide enough detailed information about your unique project? General questions are good, but the company should be able to answer specific questions you ask and eliminate any concerns you have about the project.
*Shanco has a project manager for every job to make sure everything goes smoothly and all your questions are answered to your complete satisfaction.
