Choosing The Right Contractor

Choosing the right contractor doesn’t have to be a hassle. Below is a list of 5 things you’re going to want to look for when searching out a reputable contractor or basement waterproofing professional for your next home project.




  1. Do a Little Online Research. Any reputable contractor should have some kind of listing online. Generally, you’ll want to look for independent directory listings where customers can go on a rate companies objectively. Although you’ll want to take most of these with a grain of salt, they can be a great asset.
  2. Free Inspections. Don’t fall for anything other than a totally free inspection. That means no deposits, no credit card holds, no checks, nothing. If a contractor comes out to your home to take a look, make sure that’s all they take.
  3. Time to Write it Down. If you’ve agreed to have a company come out for a free inspection an estimate, make sure they leave you with something. You’re going to want them to provide you with a written estimate that clearly explains the solutions they propose as well as the costs associated with them.
  4. License, Bond, Insurance. You can’t be too careful, and you certainly can’t foresee what could go wrong at a jobsite. By making sure your contractor of choice is licensed, insured, and bonded, you are protected yourself and your investment against anything that may happen over the course of the job.
  5. Professional Affiliations. A nice bonus is finding a contractor with professional affiliations. A contractor with professional credentials and peer support means you’re directly benefiting from collective industry knowledge.
