I heard some people have been ripped off by contractors in the past just because they pay everything upfront and the contractor is like “thanks for the money” and then they ran off and then the house is just left unfinished. Now that’s really bad because you can’t live in an unfinished house. That’s not a home, that’s just a big pile of wood. It’s not a house until it’s a finished house, so make sure that your builder or whatever finishes the job. In order to get them to finish the job you need to hold back some of the pay until they finished. It’s a pity that we have to be like that, but that’s how the world works and we just have to do it.
When doing roofing in Nelson, contractors really like to do a good job because it’s good for their reputation. If everybody knows that they have built a very good house then they will come to them to buy house. So they take pride in their work. Now if somebody does a very bad job in building a house for you you can tell everybody how bad they are. That way they will learn not to do that in the in the future.
If somebody has built very bad houses and all his previous clients have said that he did a very bad job, then other people will not want to pay him to build a house. Then he will have a hard time trying to find new clients. It will be very difficult for him to make a living. So that’s why it’s important for him to do a good job on all the houses the first time and not get a bad reputation.
Because a good reputation is very important for roofers and roofing contractors then they will do a very good job because you don’t want to get an a bad reputation by talking about them on the internet. The same can be said about other contractors. You can say that about tilers, pavers and siding contractors and basically lots of other kind of contractors.
If you have a swimming pool and you employ a pool cleaner to come and clean your swimming pool and he does a bad job you can write about him on Yelp and on Google My Business. Then he will not do a better job next time because no one will hire him and he will not have a next time! He will need to get another job. But if he does a very good job, and you talk about it on GMB and Yelp then maybe he will get a very good reputation, and other people will pay him to do their swimming pools.
