Whether you are a contractor working for a homeowner or a homeowner hiring a contractor, there are certain expectations that should be addressed.
Prior to starting the work, a cut-off date should be set for finalizing the color, finish and exact content of the work to be done. Special instructions on the following:
In addition, contractors should follow safety procedures with open solvents, ladders and scaffolding and power equipment. At the end of the day, all equipment and supplies should be secured away from children and pets.
Contractors should use protective covering at all times and completely clean-up at the end of each work day.
Crew should be presentable and clean, language quiet and proper and music kept down with no improper lyrics.
In addition, manager should check on the work being done daily, update the homeowner daily on progress, address any concerns and respond promptly to any calls or e-mails preferably responding within an hour of receipt.
With the use of these common courtesies on both the part of the homeowner and the contractor both sides will experience a rewarding outcome.
