We’re entering the busy summer remodeling season, and this year like so many others has ushered in a rash of unlicensed remodeling contractors offering remodeling or other services to consumers. In many cases these individuals are unqualified and offering poor quality work, or in the worst cases, no work at all. KGW ran a story recently showcasing the stories of a few individuals who lost money to “scammers”, and detailed efforts by the Oregon Contractor’s Board to crack down on these unlicensed providers.
When it comes to your home, quality matters, and the reality is that if a deal seems to good to be true, it probably is. When the summer season hits, it’s not necessary to take a chance on someone you’re not sure about. Portland is lucky to host a number of highly qualified remodeling contractors with proven track records. Leitner Construction is a local leader in this industry and operates all year, creating dream spaces in homes across the Portland and Vancouver metro areas, developing lasting relationships with customers and adding value to homes and neighborhoods. We always leave you better than we found you!
How to Research Remodeling Contractors
The Oregon Contruction Contractor’s Board recommends doing some research on remodeling contractors before committing your finances to a project relationship with them. A good first step is to conduct a license search on the Oregon or Washington CCB websites. Following that, search their name on Google and look for an established website and consumer reviews on sites like Angie’s List, Houzz, Yelp and Google+. We’ll make it easy for you!
