Customer Satisfaction

At Home Mender Inc., we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction. This goes beyond doing the job right; we want people to feel safe and to find their house in a better condition than it was before we got to work.

In the search for a home improvement contractor there are a lot of things to consider. You don’t want to invite just anyone into your home, and you have every right to be picky. The key is to ask questions before you hire.

What are your personal expectations? And what sort of track record does the company have? If you really need a contractor to be prompt, make sure you tell them. If you are quality oriented, not necessarily time orientated, tell them that too. The more you communicate before the contract is signed, the more likely everyone will be happy in the end.
