You found out that you need someone with a specialty on a particular topic and you need a nice AC contractor to pull the account. You are not just sure on how to choose the right one. Here are essential tips that you need to know first in choosing a good AC contractor.
Some states have a law that allows you to cancel the contract within 3 days of signing it. Some states have the 3-day law only if the contract was signed in some place other than the AC contractor’s office. You will need to know which law is followed in your state.
Before starting work, the AC contractor has to provide a notice to the customer. Make sure that you convey to the AC contractor, unthreateningly, that you are aware of the laws and you need them to be adhered to strictly. If a AC contractor has a habit of not following the laws then it’s better you don’t hire him.
A great way to understand contracts is to look online for sample contracts similar to your type of project. In this way, you can get to understand the terminology used in contracts as well as you might come across some points that you may have missed before. Be armed and prepared before you have a finalizing meeting with the AC contractor.
Never hire out-of-state AC contractors to work on your project. You really have no way of knowing if they are licensed to work in your state, or if they even really have an office. There are a lot of migrant work teams that travel state to state doing work, and they are often not competent and do poor work that has no guarantee.
A contract can be very restricting when it comes to firing a AC contractor. Always view the terms laid out and verify to not do anything that would abuse the contract. Even if you are not allowed to take any action, there may be methods to resolve the conflict through a third parties intervention.
Find out by calling how they prioritize tasks and make them sign a contract that they have to abide by. Let them prove that they are bonded and licensed. A brief explanation of their past work experience will be necessary so as to make sure they are similar with the one you describe.
Some AC contractors have ability to work on multiple projects at one time. An AC contractor that has not multi tasked may not be able to meet your time restraints if they take many jobs. This is why it is important to find out from them if they have done it before.
How many times has the AC contractor met the estimated time frame for the jobs they have worked? This is a good question to ask your potential AC contractor to be sure your job will not be delayed. If a AC contractor routinely meets deadlines there is a pretty good chance they will for you too.
