When you are looking to hire a contractor for any kind of construction or project, it is important that you make sure they are experienced in what they are working on. The cost to repair a crappy job can easily be more than the original job cost, especially when it comes to home renovation.
Over my 8 years since I started working for myself, I have learned that passion is important. Not only does it make your job more enjoyable, it often means going the extra mile and completing a job carefully and not cutting corners.
Since I was 16 years old, I have worked for myself. I have done all kinds of work ranging from whole house painting, to staging houses for sale, to landscaping and mowing. I have done just about everything. I am able to recommend an experienced contractor because of the conditions I have found myself in and the mistakes I have made along the way.
An experienced contractor may take longer, and it will certainly cost more. However, the product or service you receive will be worth the investment. Remember, good things come to those who wait.
