HOW TO BE A GOOD CLIENT

HOW TO BE A GOOD CLIENT

There’s no shortage of complaints about bad contractors. But know this: Even the good ones are frustrated by clients sometimes too.

“Whether you like it or not, I’m part of your family, and it’s going to be a love-hate relationship,” Caruk says.

What do clients do that drive contractors crazy?

“The biggest thing is getting the client to make decisions,” Ritchie says. Micromanagement is also a big one, Baeumler says. Both of which can be avoided by “making up your mind, having a plan and sticking to it,” he says.

And remember, you’ve hired a contractor, not a maid service, so don’t be too finicky about the cleanliness of the job site. “The homeowner should expect the contractors to be neat and tidy, but not to dust the trim every day at the end of the day,” Baeumler says.

    A couple of weeks ago, my condo appartement was flooded, a good portion of the carpet was under water. Consequently the carpet had to be removed and replaced. I talked to many people who dealt with similar situation and consulted a few contractors .Safa renovation was recommended to me by a friend who had to replaced a carpet after a flood. My friend told me that she was completely satisfied of the work that safa renovation did for her. I decided to have safa renovation do my project of replacing the carpet by laminate wood. I must say that I am quite pleased with the finished product and also Mr, Safa workmanship and his professional interaction with his client. All in all I am really satisfied.
