7 Ways For Using the BBB to Find a Reputable Siding Contractor

bbb_logoThe Better Business Bureau (BBB), a non-profit organization, was founded in 1912, interestingly enough, as a way to regulate “medical quackery” and the “worthless drugs” sold by disreputable business owners who took advantage of trusting customers desperate for help. The BBB primarily functions now (as it did then) as an arbitrator between consumers and businesses. The bureau grades businesses on several criteria; using the BBB’s grading system can be immensely helpful when it’s time to find a reputable siding contractor you can trust with your Minneapolis home’s siding project.

The BBB’s Grading System

While a BBB grade doesn’t guarantee excellent performance from a siding contractor company, it does serve as a good indicator of how that company deals with its customers, currently and historically. In general, the grades take into account customer interaction with a company through feedback, and how satisfied or dissatisfied customers are with a company’s service. The BBB scores are based on 16 specific factors; those 16 factors, however, fit into 7 general categories:

  1. A business’s complaint history with the BBB
  2. Type of business
  3. Time in business
  4. Background information about the business in the BBB’s files
  5. Failure to honor commitments with the BBB
  6. Licensing and government actions known to the BBB
  7. Advertising issues known to the BBB

The BBB receives complaints filed by customers about a business and investigates the veracity of the complaints. If at all possible, the issues are resolved. A review of each of the 16 factors yield’s a pretty reliable grade from the BBB.
