By showing consumers what they need to look out for, our hope is that they can take more proactive steps to avoid problems rather than be disappointed in the work done around their homes.
New York (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
U.S. consumer advocacy and customer complaints website, PissedConsumer.com, assembled a list of the most common construction and home remodeling complaints recently submitted to its database. A collection of tips to help homeowners avoid similar complaints is included.
"We observed a trend of increasing complaints about home construction and remodeling work recently," said Joanna Simpson of PissedConsumer.com. "As homeowners and contractors try to complete indoor and outdoor projects this fall, we expect that trend to continue. By showing consumers what they need to look out for, our hope is that they can take more proactive steps to avoid problems rather than be disappointed in the work done around their homes."
The four most common types of customer complaints PissedConsumer.com has received about construction and renovation projects include:
- Problems with outdoor construction jobs such as roof installations and gutter repairs;
- Poor quality windows, related warranties not being honored, and delays in window and door installation;
- Flooring installation mistakes or quality issues with flooring material including shrinking and easily-scratched surfaces;
- Faulty tools and other home improvement products such as interior paint and deck finishes that unexpectedly peel.
The PissedConsumer.com team offers the following tips to help consumers avoid or deal with these kinds of complaints in their own home construction and remodeling projects:
- Visit consumer review websites to read about past customer experiences before hiring any contractor. Check product review sites to see complaints about materials such as gutter guards or flooring brands.
- Thoroughly review warranty details before signing contracts to avoid surprises about what will and won't be covered if problems arise, such as parts versus labor costs for repairs.
- When buying paint and finishes, buy small quantities first and test them in inconspicuous areas to make sure the finish is as-expected.
- Whenever possible, preview materials and tools in-person. Do this either by visiting a retail location selling the tools or by having contractors bring samples for review and approval before having them complete any large-scale installations.
Homeowners can avoid these and other common complaints in their next construction or home improvement project by relying on feedback from other consumers. Read consumer reviews to learn more about the most widepsread consumtruction and remodeling issues
