Do you prefer CertainTeed or GAF shingles?
Asked on December 26, 2013 by Anomymous

A lot of contractors go with personal preference... That being said, both companies offer superb warranties! Generally I do not stick to a particular shingle, I asked the homeowner what it is exactly they are looking to accomplish. What I mean by this is are you going to be staying in the home,...

How can I stop my hardwood floor from squeaking?
Asked on May 9, 2013 by Justin

My master bedroom floor (currently carpet over plywood, I suspect) squeaks like there are springs under the floor when I walk across it. At different times of the year different parts of the floor squeak. I am thinking of taking up the carpet to work on this, but not sure what to do at that point. Any advice?

default logo

Your floor boards are squeeking due to them becoming loose and lifting. This is usually due to expansion and contraction from the change in humidity levels in the home. First thing you need to decide is if you are going to pull the carpeting up. If so you need to ask yourself what are you going... Read full answer

What is a good profit margin on a bathroom remodeling project?
Asked on March 2, 2013 by Jiyan

Let's say the gross revenue from a bathroom remodel is $30,000.  

How does that figure breakdown for you in terms of: 

  1. Cost of materials 

  2. Cost to secure permits / admin stuff 

  3. Cost of labor for any subs

  4. Cost of your time 

  5. Profit 

I've heard that a realistic goal seems to be about a 20% profit margin after all is said and done.  Is this too low or too high? How do you think about the project breakdown when you are pricing?

Profit margin will be different for everyone... What each person needs to take into consideration aside from materials and actual labor is company overhead: office labor from estimator right down to your secretary (don't forget yourself), all insurances and taxes, rent, utilities, etc. Once one...

About BuildZoom

BuildZoom has one simple purpose: To help you find the perfect contractor for any job, commercial or residential.

BuildZoom combines license information on 3.5 million contractors with 75 million building permits, and over 80,000 reviews from property owners.

If you are looking for a specific contractor and you can’t find them on BuildZoom, it’s likely that they do not have a license - please contact us and we’ll try to help!

Finding a Contractor through BuildZoom

The best way to use BuildZoom is to let us recommend contractors for your remodeling projects.

Here are some of the rules, regulations, and laws governing contractors in Pennsylvania

Does Whitetail Construction & Services, Inc carry a valid contracting license?

Pennsylvania does not have any licensure or certification requirements for most construction contractors. However, on July 1, 2009, the Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act (Senate Bill 100) took effect. This law requires most home improvement contractors to register with the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office.

Whitetail Construction & Services, Inc currently holds license 052081 ((Commercial & Residential General Contracting)), which was Active when we last checked.

How important is contractor licensing in Pennsylvania?

Contractors in Pennsylvania do not have to take an exam prior to registering as home improvement contractors.

Your liability risk when hiring Whitetail Construction & Services, Inc

Registered home improvement contractors in Pennsylvania must show proof of general liability insurance, workers' compensation insurance is not required. It is a good idea to only hire contractors with current general liability and workers' compensation policies. Be sure to request copies of insurance certificates for each before any work begins.

Whitetail Construction & Services, Inc holds a $2,000,000 insurance policy with MAIN STREET AMERICA ASSURANCE CO.

What else should I know before hiring Whitetail Construction & Services, Inc

Pennsylvania has some of the lightest regulations on home improvement contractors in the US and there is no financial or criminal background check performed on contractors by the State. The Pennsylvania State Police maintain a publicly accessible database so consumers can run their own background check before making a hire if they are so inclined.

How is the BuildZoom score calculated?

The BuildZoom score is based on a number of factors including the contractor's license status, insurance status, verified work history, standing with local consumer interest groups, verified reviews from other BuildZoom users and self-reported feedback from the contractor.

Why you should hire through BuildZoom

When it comes to major construction work or even minor alterations to your home, hiring the wrong contractor could result in incomplete or defective work. You may even find yourself dealing with huge liability claims. BuildZoom does the homework for you and helps you hire the right contractor.

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor

Before hiring a contractor in Pennsylvania, be sure to get at least 3 detailed bids. Quality contractors will take the time to explain their budget proposal, and help guide you through the estimate process. Be wary of an abnormally low bid, they are not worth the risk. These underpriced projects often do not end well for the homeowner, choose a contractor you trust and can clearly communicate with. BuildZoom has made the bid collection process extremely simple (and free). Just click here to get started.
