How to choose a contractor-Don’t be scammed!

Did you know over 80% of contractors will not meet the requirements listed below? Typically you can identify these contractors, because they offer unusually low prices. If you should hire a contractor that does not meet the following requirements, you run the risk they are not skilled enough to perform quality work.

Does it make sense to hire a contractor to install a window with a lifetime warranty, when their lack of experience results in the product manufacturer voiding the warranty due to poor workmanship? If that happens, you may be left without a warranty from the manufacturer and forced to pay a new contractor to reinstall the improperly installed product.

If you hire a contractor who fails to carry a minimum of $1,000,000 Liability Insurance and Workman’s Compensation Insurance you are in jeopardy of being sued. All it takes is the contractor or one of his employees becoming injured while working and you may be at risk for an incredibly expensive lawsuit. Many homeowners believe their mortgage insurance protects them. Unfortunately, once the litigation begins homeowners discover there are serious limitations in their homeowners’ policy.

Product Warranties are the warranties you receive from the manufacturer of the product. Often they only cover the price of the product. The contractors warranty usually covers just the workmanship. If you have warranty issues with the contractor’s work, is the contractor only offering to repair the product he installed? G & K’s warranty is the strongest in the industry. G & K will resolve the problem plus refund the money you spent on workmanship. Ask for details.
