Can you Trust your Contractor?

At The Pole Barn Company we can sell you the highest quality pole barn kits but we can't install it for you. If you aren't a skilled builder, chances are you will have to hire a general contractor to do the job. Unfortunately, as we all know, there are quite a few fly-by-night contractors who will promise the world and deliver very little.

If you are ordering a pole barn kit and will need help installing it, follow these tips to make sure you find a contractor you can trust.

References: The first thing you should check when considering a general contractor is their references. Ask for at least three and people who have work done within the last year. If a contractor can't provide at least three genuine references there is probably a good reason why. Don't be afraid to call on the references and ask specific questions that will help you make a best decision.

Research: You should do some research on your own concerning the contractor you are considering. A search online can reveal reviews from previous clients, whether they have a web site and if they are registered as a legitimate business in the town they are based in. You can also contact the town to find out if the business is operating legally in the area.

Interview: Don't ever hire a contractor without meeting with them in person. Too many times people do a quick phone call and agree to a hire without really knowing who they are hiring. This can lead to some disappointing and expensive headaches. Before you make any decision, be sure you meet the contractor in person. Their appearance, demeanor and answers to your questions will help you decide if they are right for the job. Make note of how they react to your questions; are they avoiding eye contact, giving vague answers or trying to rush you? These are warning signs and should be taken into consideration.
