Tips offered for homeowners

Pete Thomas, president of Mundelein's Home Improvement Network (www.thehomeimprovement.com) doesn't mind sharing some of his secrets to celebrate National Home Week April 7-14.  For those homeowners who want to find their own contractor, he offers these tips:

  • Get at least 3 estimates for your project.

  • Ask friends and neighbors for referrals, but avoid the Yellow Pages.

  • Request a list of references, and then check them. 

  • Request a copy of their certificate of insurance.

  • Look for an established contractor.

  • How long is the warranty?

  • Don't make a decision based solely on price.

  • Look for professional designations, which indicate a higher degree of professionalism.

  • Follow your instincts.

If you're a smart consumer, you call Pete Thomas, the president of The Home Improvement Network in Mundelein at 847.837.8370.  He'll give you the names of several reliable contractors, all established, pre-screened and eager for your business.  And yes, he'll do it for free.
