Tips for Hiring a Contractor

If you are thinking about doing a #renovation project to you home, consider some helpful tips as you think about hiring your next contractor!


1) Get multiple estimates- written estimates can help you ensure you are comparing apples to apples and getting a fair price.

2) Hire local, licensed #contractors- they are easier to contact and likely to be familiar with local ordinances.

3) Check their past work.

4) Take time to make a sound decision- don’t be pressured into making an immediate decision and read the fine print on all contracts.

5) Check the contractors insurance- ask for a Certificate of Insurance from the contractor and make sure they are properly covered (we are happy to review any COI’s you acquire).

6) Get everything in writing.

7) Understand your right to cancel- review the provisions in the contract to make sure you understand your rights.

8) Don’t pay up front- don’t pay for an entire project before it is complete and do not pay in cash.

9) Anticipate delays- it is frustrating but they happen.


Good luck with your summer #remodeling projects and keep these tips in mind as you evaluate contractors!

Riverside Insurance is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst we strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact our accessibility coordinator Julius Luciano by phone at 970-999-0101 or by email at JLuciano@riversideinsuranceco.com . Your feedback will help us make improvements.
