Why go with the Pros – rather than a guy from cragslist?

Posted by:

There are several reasons to use installers that are certified by their respective companies and can handle unique situations.  First, the job will be done correctly and if tweaking is needed, later, the professional installer will be there to assist.

The government reports that nearly 200,000 accidents occur each year by people falling off ladders when trying to do work on the exterior of their homes.  About one percent result in fatalities and four percent are debilitating.   You do not want to end your career or be dependent on others to get around because you “wanted to do it yourself”.

Make sure that the contractor you choose has installers with full liability insurance.  Your homeowners insurance, more than likely, does not cover sub-contractors.  There have been many incidences where sub-contractors have feigned an accident to try and collect damages from the homeowner.

In summary, you want it done right the first time.  It will save you a lot of aggravation and money in the long run.

We screen the applicant professionals for :

  • Customer Background Reference Check going back as far as five years ( we find previous customers and talk to them on the phone or if we can we will drive over and inspect the work )
  • No one man in a van operations – we check that they have #1 a physical location (no fly by night characters) and #2 Inventory of the product ( that they can install in a timely matter)
  • The paperwork; Insurance, Certifications and a solid track record

What is the worst that can happen?

If the Contractor does not perform adequately and a dispute arises between the Customer and the Contractor, we will unofficially mediate the problem and if the Contractor is at fault, we will suspend and eventually permanently ban them from this site once our investigation is concluded.

We think that this is an effective strategy as the Contractor has a direct incentive to make things right as:

  • We have put our reputation on the line and we are an unbiased party in the matter.
  • Our readers are a significant source of customers for our Verified Contractors. Having access to our readers is a privilege for the Contractor and it can be revoked if they do not adhere to the principles of our site and provide you service with integrity.
  • Our readers are a significant source of customers for our Verified Contractors. Having access to our readers is a privilege for the Contractor and it can be revoked if they do not adhere to the principles of our site and provide you service with integrity.
  • One Strike Policy: Upon the first complaint where we deem the contractor at fault – he is gone forever period! where as the BBB the contractor can just pay off complaints (we are not joking) – obviously this does not work here as no amount of money can get a contractor back in , so who would you trust?)
  • Our webpage is always on top of the search engines (thank you Jonn – he is one of our CEO masterminds ) having a contractor just listed here would put them in a high spotlight and access to our readers so having that spotlight blemished by a complaint – From the time this article has been edited (7.19.2013) we have received zero – Yes not even one single complaint about any of the contractors that we list her ( we have received many many thank you emails and calls from homeowners tho)
  • So the reason we are so talkative about the NCR verified installers is simple – we make our readers happy by having great reviews and referring quality installers who have a very big incentive and enjoyment in preforming great installations on your homes and therefore we did our job as content providers by creating the full circle experience for everyone involved.

Here is how the math works:  Informed Reader + Informed Product Decision + Installer that wants to make you happy as your happiness gets him the next customer =  everyone wins as: our reader gets a product that is going to work for a price that is fair, the installer has a steady income and as a result we have more readers and the cycle repeats itself
