For the past couple of months, the Austin real estate market is rapidly growing and even the residential construction industry is working round the clock for new home constructions and remodeling throughout the city. However, for those who wish to hire contractors to revise their homes, it is difficult to know which contractors they can trust as Texas does not have any licensing requirements for general contractors. In order to make sure one is not victimized by these unlicensed contractors, it is important to look at the listing of the known trade associations to get recommendations on local-builders. Homeowners must also ask for recommendations from friends regarding the contractors they use and consider which contractors will work well in the area. Finally, it is also good to do research in online recommendations and portfolios for ideas of these contractors.
