Finding a Contractor

Does anyone know someone in Columbia, SC that does construction work and needs work but will not be a rip off? We have been in our house for 40 plus years and need a lot of work done.

You're best bet is to call 'at least' a half dozen 'licensed' company's in the phone book, get written bids from each of them and then check each one out through the licensing board and the better business bureau before deciding who to hire even if someone here at TF or a local neighbor gives you a 'recommendation'! Am speaking from experience!

And always get the estimate in writing with a stipulation that there are no extra charges unless you agree to them in writing first. Also, try out a new contractor on a small project first so you see how the relationship goes.
