"Contractor Facts" Promoting the Concept That Consumers Are Entitled
To Honesty and That "Sales Talk" Must Be Backed Up With Printed, Factual Information as Part of the Homeowner’s Contract. This Gives Shoppers
The Obligation to Evaluate both Company Reliability and Fair Pricing.
"Free Contractor Facts Online" gives consumers the opportunity to make an intelligent decision when investing in home remodeling. Informed
consumers are always looking for value and willing to pay for quality as long as expectations for contractor reliability is assured.
THE MISSION... TRANSPARENCY... Improving the way homeowners deal with the lack of accountability, misrepresentation and fraud from less than
honest contractors. "Contractor Facts" requires "DISCLOSURE" of the company’s History and Operating Procedures on the back of their contract
for consumer evaluation. Less than honest contractors not providing transparency who quote an extremely low price just to get the sale will
be at a disadvantage.
THE GOAL- To give reliable contractors with integrity and a fair price the ability to close sales and grow their businesses.
THE PROBLEM- The difficulty consumers have in obtaining accurate information on a contractors reliability and their accountability after the
sale- Before the consumer signs a contract.
THE SOLUTION "TRANSPARENCY" Disclosing to homeowners the contractor’s percentage of repeat business and referral’s compared to advertising.
It’s a FACT that home improvement companies who do not provide quality products, timely, superior installation and service after the sale
will not receive recommendations or repeat business.
THE ENFORCEMENT- "Marketplace Enforcement" EXAMPLE- If any intentional fraudulent or misrepresented information is used to influence the
consumers decision to purchase, this fraud will eventually become known. Less than honest contractors will not be able to enter a courtroom
without the risk of prosecution for intentional fraud.
This could possibly bankrupt fraudulent contractors due to the inability to collect
debts through the courts.
THE BENEFITS- Disclosure/ Transparency exposes contractor reliability and sends a message to all Home improvement contractors that provide
in home services to PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL, to DELIVER WHAT THEY PROMISE and to
SERVICE WHAT THEY SELL.

SUPPORTS- "DISCLOSURE CONTENT LABELING" Home improvement Products installed by contractors should be content labeled by manufacturers.
Similar to the legally required content labels found on mattresses and pillows. Consumers would have easy access to home improvement product
information, for example what gauge of steel is in their door and if brass hardware is solid or plated. Contractors cannot remove the label
only the home owner can discard it. Underhanded contractors would no longer be able to utilize "bait and switch" tactics on the quality of
the building materials that go into your home.
