R.D. Prime Contractors, Inc.
Word-of-Mouth References are one of your best and most readily available resources. We encourage you to thoroughly check out the project list we have furnished.
Other resources to use in determining whether or not to hire a contractor include:
- The Better Business Bureau – check to see whether any complaints against the contractor have been filed. If there are complaints, check to see whether or not they are valid. Was any action required; disciplinary or otherwise?
- The Construction Industry Licensing Board; within the Department of Business and Professional Regulation at the state level if the contractor is certified. Check to see if any complaints have been lodged against the contractor in question.
By contacting either of these two agencies you can discover whether the contractor has been convicted or found guilty of any crime in any jurisdiction which relates to contracting, used false names or documentation for obtaining contractual work, ever abandoned a job, or been found negligent – resulting in danger to life or property.
You can also find out if the contractor has ever committed mismanagement or misconduct while working; causing financial harm to the homeowner. Or, failed to obtain necessary local building permits or inspections for a project, falsely indicated the work is bonded and that payment has been made for all subcontractor work and materials, etc., or committed fraud or deceit in the practice of contracting.
