PIERRE — June is National Homeownership Month. It’s a time for residents to reflect on the importance of the home and its role in their lives. Jesse Schmidt of the Better Business Bureau says it is also an opportunity for homeowners to use caution when contracting for home improvements….
She says BBB recommends homeowners get at least three quotes from separate businesses before making a final decision. Plus never pay the total cost up front even if the contractor offers a significant discount. And make sure they and subcontractors are properly licensed, bonded and insured.
