Consumer Commandments Home Remodeling Contractors The Bureau suggest that you solicit two or three bids for the remodeling work you are planning, but do not automatically accept the lowest offer. Make sure all bids are based on the same set of specifications and materials to be used. Ask for local references and inspect the finished projects. Ensure that the contractor is properly licensed. Make sure you understand all financing and contractual terms and never sign a contract with sections left blank. Do not make final payment until the work is completed.
