Finding The Best Service Providers
Are you looking to do some home renovations this year? Believe it or not, winter may be a good time to have some work done on your home no matter how big the project. Business is slower for general contractors during this time of year and materials may even be less expensive. Also, contractors may be eager to find work since this is usually their slow season. Doing an online search for a contractor or other servicer will generate a ton of results, especially in the metro area. Here are a few tips on finding the best service providers in Colorado.
Finding Help This Season
When doing your research online, the best place to start is with reviews. This is your best defense against a company or individual that doesn't do good work. This means that Yelp and similar sites with star-ratings will be a big help. If you don't have the time to read a ton of reviews—most of us can't spend hours and hours sleuthing on the web—then sites like Five Star Rated are the way to go. These sites do the work for you and show you only the highest rated servicers in your area for specific categories. On Fire Star Rated you can search by area and by project, whether it be HVAC, electrical, garage door, gutters, painting, plumbing, roofing, landscaping and more.
Another great way to find contractors is to ask your real estate agent. Haven't spoken to your agent since you bought your home? Don't feel weird about calling them up out of the blue. Real estate agents are a special breed of people that always want to hear from past clients, a trait rare in sales jobs. Not only do agents hear about the best service providers in the state, they have probably hired them and know them personally. Also, many agents have bought, renovated, and sold homes themselves, so they can tell you which projects will give you the best resale value for your home. Your relationship with your Colorado real estate agent can be a huge asset, so give them a call today!
