If you’re researching “contractors in Naples, FL” you may be wondering how to sort the good and the bad from the downright ugly. There are countless companies listed online and on social media pages. How do you know which one to choose?

Start with the basics

If you need to hire contractors, you’ll want to make sure they’re licensed, insured, and reputable.  For example, in Southwest Florida, companies that work on tile roofing systems need to carry a different license than companies that work mostly with asphalt shingles. Suffice to say, you’ll want to make sure you’re hiring the right company to do the job.  Additionally, you’ll want to check out their online reviews. Do they have lots of positive reviews on Google+? Have prior clients had good things to say about the company’s workmanship, customer service, and attention to detail? If a company has lots of good reviews, you’ll likely be in good hands.

Lastly, if you can’t find the company listed on the Internet, they don’t have a website, and you can’t get them to give you their licensing information, do not hire them. Why? Because they likely aren’t licensed, and if you hire them, you won’t have any guarantees about their workmanship. You also won’t have any assurances that they won’t take your money and run.

Ask for a quote

As you start to meet with potential contractors, ask them if they’ll provide you with a written estimate. The estimate should be official, meaning, it should be on company letterhead, it should include their address, contact info and licensing information, and it should include a full breakdown of costs, including labor and materials costs. If the person you’re talking to is reluctant to give you anything in writing, or they’re trying to pressure you to commit to the work, no questions asked, this is a huge red flag.  Ask them to leave (so you can call a different company.)
