When finding something online is so easy, why should you take the time to travel to the store to find the best deal.
The same can be said for contractors to do the work for you.
They are everywhere and on so many sites that there is no reason to go meet with them at their office. To me that just seems like a waste of time and gas in my car. I put out a request for bids on re-insulating my attic and fixing the leaks in the ductwork that was up there. I explained what I was looking for in detail and then let people give me quotes on completing the job. Of course I went with the lowest bid, wouldn’t you? Well I have had nothing but headaches since that time. Not only did the guy show up two days late, he has not finished the job properly and the cost is more than he quoted. My family is furious at me and my daughter keeps telling me that the guy seems sketchy. He said that he worked for a local HVAC dealer and was doing the job on the side to make extra money. He also said that he could get the replacement parts for the ductwork at cost, none of that turned out to be true. When I started to think something was up I called the dealer and asked about him and they said they had fired him long ago. As much as I hated to admit that I had made a mistake in hiring him I really had no choice. I needed to make sure that my family was safe and the job was done properly. I fired the guy I had hired and contacted the person that was listed on a site that was insured, had a five star rating and many customer reviews that were favorable.
