Tip 2: Research Reviews

BBB and Angieslist reviews are also the best places to look. BBB is more accessible, whereas Angieslist requires a membership but might be worth your investment.

Make sure that you are also following the reviews of customers who actually had work completed with the company. Sometimes, customers aren’t a good fit for a company. Companies have the right to choose you, just like you choose them.
