Green Services: Contractors

generic service pics
     A contractor is needed when the job calls for expertise or when you just don't have the time to do it yourself. It may also be necessary to hire a contractor when your local laws require it.


Hiring a good contractor is a very green choice. Why?  Because bad contractors create more waste and cost. While it may be a little cheaper to hire people who either do not know what they are doing or worse, hire people who do, but cut corners anyway, ultimately it costs more in the end.
     Land fills are full of debris from inferior work performed by bad contractors. This can be the fault of the contractor or the person hiring them. We are not going to point fingers, we merely suggest that, in the long run, we will save the load on our land fills and our wallets by hiring good contractors using good materials.
Before you call anyone, you may want to do a little research on your own. You could talk to your friends (and we suggest you do). However, you may want to check out some of the resources below. Greencompletely.com has researched the these links and have written comments about these resources.
