How to Pick a Contractor

Common Fallacies

Common FallaciesThe lowest price is the best?

Carpet stores and Big Box stores offer little or no improvement in skill, talent or professionalism over an un-licensed person offering to do the same work. BE CAREFUL!! To make their "low" price work they can only afford the cheapest labor. Individuals who sell their labor at the cheapest rate have no marketable talent, and are desperate.
