WHY USE A WHBA MEMBER?  When looking for a Builder or Contractor, it is important that you select a company that is licensed and has the necessary insurance. 

Georgia now has a Builder License Law.  Unlicensed builders can not pull the necessary permits required when doing yor work and unpermitted home repairs or improvements may cause significant issues, should you decide to sell you home at a later date.  Permits and subsequest inspections insure that your work is done according to code, insuring the safety of you and your family.  A Builder License is not a local Business License.  Make sure you verify that he is licensed before contracting to have work done.
  You are lible for injury should an uninsured contractor be injured while performing work on you home.  Again, this does not mean Life Insurance or Vehicle Insurance.  It must be Workman's Compensation Insurance.  Ask to see his pertificate.

There are 2 types of memberships in Westside HBA.  A Builder Member is a member who is licensed by the State of Georgia and is involved in both residential and commercial construction.Remodelers who have a Builder License are also classified as Builder Members.  Associate Members are members who supply materials or services to a Builder Member or work directly with a homeowner. Normally they would not have a Georgia Builder License. 

If you have questions regarding any of our member firms, please do not hesitate to call WHBA at 770/355-6714

When selecting a contractor for your project, make sure you ask the following questions. 

1. How long have you been in the business or working in the industry?
Look for a credible track record and successful work experience.

2. Are you licensed, insured and bonded?
At the very least, make sure your pro is licensed and carries worker’s comp and liability insurance. Bonding is not a universal requirement. Think of bonding as homeowners insurance that protects you in case of an incomplete job.

3. Do you guarantee your work in writing?
While a verbal guarantee is nice, it offers no guarantees that the contractor will actually stand behind his work. Draft a written guarantee that states exactly what is and isn’t covered.

4. Can you provide references?
Ratings and reviews are a great resource, especially when coupled with references from previous customers. Ask your contractor to provide a list of references. Don't hire pros who can't offer references.

5. Do you pull all the required permits?
Failing to pull the required permits can cost you big time. Have your contractor pull the necessary paperwork and permits to get your job started. If your contractor is hesitant, find a new pro.

6. Who will be managing the project?
If your contractor isn't in charge of your job, insist on meeting the project manager to ensure he measures up to your standards.

7. What is the project timeline and daily work schedule?
Construction scheduling is never perfect. Workers get sick, orders get delayed and weather causes interruptions. But an organized contractor will provide you with a work schedule that clearly outlines a start and end date.

8. Will you need water or bathroom facilities?
Most contractors are self-sufficient enough to bring their own water. But, unless your job is a major remodel that necessitates bringing in a port-a-john, there’s a good chance your workers will need to use your facilities. Dedicate a bathroom (or bathrooms) to your workers before you start your project.

9. Will you need my garage code or keys to my house? Who will have access?
Many homeowners feel uncomfortable handing over the keys to their home. Unless you plan on staying home during the construction, you’re going to need to give your contractor access to your house. Knowing who has the keys to your home will give you peace of mind.

10. Will you sign a contract?
All worthwhile contractors will write out a clear contract that defines the work to be performed, as well as the material, costs and completion timeframes associated with the project. Thorough contracts also cover what happens if the project becomes problematic. This is known as a time and materials contract. The contract should also include a termination clause that spells out the circumstances in which both parties are allowed to terminate the contract.
