Things to Watch Out for When Talking to a Contractor

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 by Danielle Jauregui


Contractors are trying to do their job just like everyone else. However, the way contractors go about their job can vary. Rod Martin’s Complete Basement Systems wants homeowners to be aware of common tricks contractors may try to pull when inspecting their home. Watch out if you witness these sneaky tactics:  

High-pressure sales tactics

Once they’re in the door, you can’t get them to leave unless you sign the contract. Unfortunately, this occurs often. Rod Martin’s Complete Basement Systems offers customers a free, no-obligation inspection and estimate for the work they need done.

Can start the job right away

Be careful with a contactor who has little else on their schedule. The volume of work we do at Rod Martin’s Complete Basement Systems allows us to retain the best and most experienced in the industry. We ensure that the most qualified professionals are assigned to your project and our crew will work until the job is done right. Remember, you will make a buying decision once, but must live with the results forever.

Claiming to have the same products

Rod Martin’s CBS has over 30 patented products that are exclusive to our network. Our products are not available anywhere else, and the imitation products are not as high quality. Not only do we offer exclusive, professional products, the team installing the products are experienced and knowledgeable.

Inconsistent Pricing

Contractors often use the power of reciprocity when convincing customers to sign a contract. They start by trying to sell you with a higher price, and if you don’t buy, they will drop the price by offering a discount due to extra materials from another job or already having a crew in the area at that time. By presenting the discount as a favor to the customer, the customer is then guilted into reciprocating the favor by signing the contract right then and there. If the negotiation sounds suspicious, it is most likely a lie to manipulate the customer to buy before they have a chance to look at other options.

At Rod Martin’s Complete Basement Systems, we don’t ever want our customers to feel pressured or skeptical of our work. We provide full inspections and FREE, no-obligation estimates. We understand that your home is a major investment and our design specialists are there to answer any questions you may have. We’d love to provide a permanent solution to your home’s problems!
