Vital Question You Must Ask All Contractors

Performance Property Real Estate Question

Q: I’ve got a bad leak in one of my properties but I can’t find any plumbers willing to work Sunday. Bill, Carteret, NJ

A: There are more obvious things you need to know about a contractor before you hire them like their expertise, years of experience and whether they are professionally licensed to name a few but one of the most important things you must find out is when contractors are available to work–which days of the week they work or don’t work, when they go away on holidays or go on vacation because your knowledge of their availability is key to you getting your work completed. So for example, I have a list of plumbers that are willing to work on Sundays and holidays—you have to prepare your contractor list with their schedule availability BEFORE you need them to do the work! Thanks for your question, Bill.
