Consumer Toolbox

Our Goal

At the BluePagesPro (BPP) directory we are dedicated to connecting consumers with quality licensed service professionals to help with home improvement projects. Our contractor directory requires each professional to include their state license information and state requirements be met. Of course, it’s always a good idea to perform your own due diligence when it comes to hiring home service professionals. So, we are pleased to offer you some pointers on and a few time-tested tips to help you further protect yourself and choose the best pro to get the job done right:

Always confirm credentials: Ask to see a copy of the professional’s trade license to verify that it’s current and in compliance with any applicable state and local-level requirements. Also, be sure to verify that the pro is appropriately insured and bonded.

Pay with a paper trail: Pay service professionals with a credit card or check, not cash, and pay only the company, not a single individual. Don’t make large deposits or upfront payments. And if you pay for supplies, be sure to get a receipt and have them delivered directly to your home.
Get the proper permits: Verify that any pro you hire will obtain the proper permits required for your project. Also, ensure that they’re well-versed in any applicable state and local regulations.

Do your research: Before you hire a contractor, be sure to get multiple bids for your project. Also, read ratings and reviews on GOOGLE | Social Sites | Yelp or general search engines like Google to see what other homeowners have had to say about a pro work.

Get everything in writing: Always insist on a formal contract signed by both parties, and ensure that it states exactly what’s included in the scope of work for your project.
