STATEMENT OF INTENT
To be read by the consumer
Name Of Company_____________
Is a participating Residential Contractor that adheres to the principals of Contractor Facts which are put forth with our disclosure statement on the reverse of our contract. Shop-at-Home companies and/or residential contractors – fill out a competency questionnaire that consumers can evaluate. This becomes the disclosure information on the reverse side of their contract. Sign an affidavit attesting to the accuracy of the disclosure information. If the contractor is a partnership both partners must attest to the information. If the contractor is a corporation the information must be attested to by two officers of the corporation, if applicable. If an underhanded or foolish contractor would intentionally misrepresent with fraudulent information to influence a purchase they risk non-payment by the consumer the contractor would lose their ability to take the consumer to court and would risk the possibility of prosecution for intentional fraud. Competition in the market place will regulate information disclosed by the contractor.
With www.Free Contractor Facts Online.com the consumer does not have to rely on the salesperson’s verbal explanation of company history and Operating Procedure. This information is invaluable to the homeowner when obtaining estimates and signing contracts. “Contractor Facts” will turn shop-at-home selling for residential home improvements into a intelligent choice for consumers when they are given the opportunity to make an educated decision while they are getting estimates. Contractor facts will restrict incompetent contractors and fraud in the marketplace rather then in the courtroom.
Contractor Facts does not mediate disputes between participants and consumers, nor does the organization accept complaints about poor products, poor service, etc. Contractor Facts only acknowledges that its participants are willing to openly disclose information for consumer evaluation. The organization does maintain a direct line (215) 455-1400 or 1-800-568-6989 For any questionable information disclosed on a member’s contract. Putting on notice any member intentionally distorting disclosure facts would be subject to Marketplace Enforcement.
