How do I know if the higher priced contractor is ripping me off or if the lower priced one knows what he is doing?

A. Ask the higher priced contractor why he is higher. If he can explain why in a logical way (other than saying the lower priced one is a jerk or some other derogatory remark), he may be able to give you a good feeling and help you understand the processes needed to do it right. Then ask the lower priced contractor why he is so low. If he says he can do a better job for less or that he works on volume, chances are he is inexperienced. Quality restoration firms do not work on volume.
