Last year I sat down and constructed a list of all home improvement projects I wanted to start with. Not surprisingly, the list grew quite quickly much bigger than I had anticipated but that was not to say it was a bad thing. Improvements and renovations are important to maintain the quality of your home and also to avoid accidents that could happen in the future because of errors.
When I was done with the list I started to rearrange them in order of importance and then lookup prospective companies that could help me with the renovation. On aspect I was conceded with was what makes me choose one company over another? I look around a lot and found examples of companies I wanted to work with due to their company guarantees. It feels important to me to know that you are working with the best people on the market.
But can’t companies just make things up?
Well surely they can. You should not base a companies expertise only on what they write on their website. I actually called a few different companies for each of my project and based my opinion on range of factors. As a customer you quickly get a good stomach feeling or a bad one. It all comes down to the way they greet you, explain to you and the level of customer service provided without exchanging any money.
The next time you are choosing between two or more companies to do a service for you, think of what aspects that determines you picking one over another.
