Many home service industries are seasonal. During the busy season, the better companies get backed up.
Instead of waiting for a reputable company, unsuspecting homeowners sometimes take a chance with any company that can start work right away. There may be some very good reasons why a company in a cyclical business has very few customers during the busiest time of the year.
Before taking a chance, ask yourself, “If I were in an unfamiliar city on a Saturday night, would I eat at an empty restaurant that could serve me right away or would I eat at a restaurant with some customers?”
In the long run, the hassle and cost associated with repairing poor work may make you wish you had waiting for a reputable, high-quality, insured company in the first place.
