Whether repairing the garage, driveway, roof or working on electrical, plumbing, water proofing or framing, a contractor may be hired for home repairs. General contractors are skilled individuals who can provide services for the senior community to keep their homes in good condition. For example, they can help build ramps for wheelchairs, as well as provide other services for aging in place conversions. Seniors in Atlanta should verify the contractor is licensed.

General Contractors are those who can handle just about anything related to construction, from framing and concrete to plumbing and electrical. They either have employees who are trained and licensed in the various specialties, or they sub-contract the job to a company specializing in what you need. The GC will oversee and be responsible for the entire job. Paying for this expertise can save time and worries.

Sometimes it is best to go straight to those who specialize in what you need done, such as gutters, for instance.

When considering any type of contractor, it is always advisable to call at least six of their references. Ask for details about the experience each had with the contractor. If it is all good, continue by saying, "Please tell me of any little problem you may have had with this person." This last question tells the person called that it is okay to talk about any minor problems, which may or may not be minor to you.

If money is an issue, you may want to investigate obtaining a Reverse Mortgage, especially if you need some home improvements to be able to stay in your home as long as possible.

As always, call the Better Business Bureau to make sure there have been no reported complaints. (This number is located in the Quick Guide of your SRD). Depending on the job, it is advisable to ask to see certification that the contractor is bonded and insured.
