Believe it or not, some homeowners have hired crummy contractors – the kind you have no confidence in. But these people are quite sure that if everything goes bad, they’ve still got a written warranty.
Now a warranty is only as good as the company making it. The SBA says that 80% of new service companies don’t make it to their 5th birthday (93% don’t make it to 10 years!). You should know how far along that time line your contractor is before you buy into his warranty.
