There are more and more home improvement referral services across the US. They spend their time looking for trusted and good quality contractors that can do the work, which brings a great profit to these businesses.
And you won’t need much to take a break. A home improvement referral service business takes only a little money and not more time than a regular 40 hour a week job. These businesses can make good money even in the first year.
What you need to first is to think about what kind of home improvement business you want to refer to. This can include gutter cleaning and replacement, remodeling, building additions, fencing, lawn maintenance, and many others. Bear in mind that not all people like to remodel if you do, and many of them simply don’t have the time to do it. Therefore, no business should be overlooked.
You will need to call the local, county and state government offices when you choose the type of contractors you would like to include in your referral business. You should get all the requirements and regulations connected to the business registry, licensing and insurance for every contractor you have. And this is just a first step in building your list. It is good to have a policy that would exclude all contractors from your list in case they do not meet the government regulations.
By knowing these requirements and using them, your home improvement referral business will gain credibility with your clients. The contractor will not be on your list at all in case they do not meet these requirements. Knowing that the job will be done as agreed and correctly is what will make your clients feel more satisfied and relaxed.
Another way to ensure the creditability of your referral service business is to only look at contractors that are recommended by their past happy customers. Bear in mind that this is not the end of a screening process. The recommendations are simply not enough.
You should always check the contractor’s quality and level of service when you get the recommendation to your home improvement referral business. Talk to them, explaining your referral service business. You will see that most contractors will be happy to oblige when it comes to the information they need to give you. This is your home improvement referral service business and you can take it wherever you want.
