Summer is commonly a time for homeowners to consider making improvements to their home, and sometimes improvements are needed that aren’t planned for. Jessie Schmidt, Director of Better Business Bureau South Dakota, said it’s also an opportunity for homeowners to use caution when contracting for home improvements.
Schmidt said that BBB recommends homeowners get at least three quotes from separate businesses before making a final decision. She said also that people should never pay the total cost up front, even if the contractor offers a significant discount. They should also make sure that contractors and subcontractors are properly licensed, bonded and insured. More information can be found on the Better Business Bureau’s website.
