See if they have a professional office & not just an answering service.
Check the professionalism of the office and the literature.
Check the personality and integrity of the owner and their overall presentation.
Ask about or look at the men who will be working on/in your home or business.

REFERENCES; We have an open-door policy of visiting our jobs with an appointment & we notify the owner in advance, they are glad to do it. “A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words” Thus, we try not to inconvenience our customers with nuisance call references from strangers. You may also visit our office to see volumes of pictures on our computer.
Know that we DO NOT shuffle jobs in order to gluttonize profits, nor do we hurt you in the interim as many others do.
We show up EVERY DAY until COMPLETION.
See if your contract is professionally typed and includes all the items you discussed (and go over it with the owner in detail) or if it’s merely a handwritten proposal or an inadequate attempt.

Do you feel safe with them having the key to YOUR Home or Business?
