We are honoured that you are considering using Viva Renovations and Contracting for your project. Finding the right contractor to remodel your home or business can be challenging. Family, friends and work associates have given you lots of advice and you’ve heard your fair share of horror stories. This can leave you feeling overwhelmed. We hope to make this process easier by narrowing down the list to just a few warning signs you should always look for before hiring a contractor.

Please see our gallery which shows some of the many projects with which we have been involved.

    Here are some items to watch out for when interviewing contractors:

  • High pressure sales tactics. You should be sold on their work not their sales tactics.

  • Easy to get a hold of – available to take or return phone calls.

  • Working odd hours and no overhead.

  • No references.

  • Unusual payment terms.

  • No written contract or estimate. You have no legal protection.

  • Doesn’t provide a warranty on their work. If your contractor won’t guarantee their work, they lack confidence in it so why should you trust them?.
