Get the Best Contractor for Your Project

Every contractor we work with is thoroughly screened to ensure they meet the highest standards across the board. Here’s how we make sure that you’ll always have the best local contractors working on your house:

 

 

 

Core Licenses and Standards

We start with core standards and certifications. Before anything else, they have to be licensed with the Construction Contractors Board (CCB), fully insured, use fully-trained installers/workers, and be registered with ODOE to qualify for tax credits.

Customer Service

Our contractors treat both customers and employees with respect. That means that all contractors need to have an excellent customer service track record. We look at BBB, Angie’s List, and online reviews, as well as our own homeowner satisfaction surveys to make sure they have a positive track record.

Enhabit’s High Road Standards

They also need to meet our High Road Standards, a commitment to pay a family-supporting wage, employ highly qualified minority and historically under-represented tradespeople, and provide reasonable Employee Health Care. A higher quality workforce means you’ll get higher quality work — it’s a win-win.

Specialty Training & Requirements

Our contractors treat both customers and employees with respect. That means that all contractors need to have an excellent customer service track record. We look at BBB, Angie’s List, and online reviews, as well as our own homeowner satisfaction surveys to make sure they have a positive track record.

Get the Best Financing & Rebates

Home improvements costs can add up quickly, but you don’t have to face that alone. No matter the project, we’re here to help you get the most for your money.

Financial Guidance

We’ve provided oversight for thousands of projects, and we put that expertise to work for you. We’ll help you figure out which improvements make the most sense, review your contractor bids, and provide an action plan so you can prioritize the work. From beginning to end, we’ll keep your project on the right track.

Exclusive Loan Options

About half of our homeowners use our proprietary loan options to pay for their improvements. We’ve partnered with local lenders to offer financing that fits seamlessly into our process. Best of all, we take care of the paperwork and applications, integrating it into the bidding process to keep things going smoothly. In many cases, we can even help you pay for your upgrades right on your utility bill.

Rebate & Incentive Filing

Rebates and incentives change often, and it’s easy for most people to lose track. Our job is to make the most out of those incentives. We’ll build those into bids and financing estimates, then take care of all the filing and paperwork to make sure you get best financial return.

Long-Term Value

The best improvements make your home more comfortable, efficient, healthier, and safer — all while adding value over time. We’ll help you weigh all of the pros and cons to create as much value as possible. Whether it’s lower energy bills or improvements in equity, we always keep an eye on the long-term value of your projects.
