So on one of my earlier posts I talked a little bit about the importance of ensuring that the owners of your bed and breakfast only hire professional contractors to do any repair or home improvement projects on their home and that I would take more time later on to discuss this in more detail. I am a woman of my word so here we go.
Remember… The Paperwork
If you are still searching for that perfect house and you see something that might be an issue either on the inside or outside of the house, don’t be afraid to ask for any recent documentation on a licensed and professional contractor coming in to do the proper repair work. You should never feel bad ensuring that these types of issues weren’t handled by the homeowner by throwing on some quick and easy band-aid.
Any reputable and reliable business owner will have all of the proper paperwork at hand and ready to turn over at any requests and those who don’t almost always have something that they are trying to hide which is grounds for moving on to your next option.
Although it is rare, you never want there to be any maintenance or repair issues to arise anywhere in the house or during anytime of your vacation.
Of course, I am talking about major issues that can happen to a house. For any home owners or aspiring bed and breakfast owners, there are plenty of DIY home improvement ideas here if you are curious to take a look.
