How We Pre-screen
To pre-screen home improvement contractors, we comprehensively check identity, credit, and safety records, and review the status of all trade licenses and federal/state/local filings to make certain the business is operating legally.
All remodeling contractors in our system have a proven track record, a stable financial history, honest business practices, and many happy customers. That's because RemodelingBIDs thoroughly assesses each contractor's professionalism and integrity before we make referrals. The background check is conducted by a skilled third-party private investigator, under our supervision.
We verify bonds and contact the contractor's insurance agent to confirm that its general liability insurance is in good standing. In addition, we search civil, criminal, and sex offender records to verify that no derogatory judgments are on file on the company's owner.
Perhaps even more importantly, we call each customer reference provided. We make sure the work was actually performed and that the customer was pleased it. We also ask the customer to weigh in on the contractor's work ethics.
Our system continually monitors each contractor's licensing, bonding, and insurance, and will alert us if any paperwork expires. We also encourage our users to offer feedback about contractors and so we can monitor their customers' experiences. In these ways, we stay current with our members so you can have peace of mind when you choose a RemodelingBIDs contractor.
