How can I learn more about the contractor?

Once you know the name of the contractor, do some online research. What  other houses have they built? What features are commonly seen in the  developer’s residential projects? What have its clients said about them?  What about neighbors of those projects?

The State of Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry has the  authority to license and regulate building contractors and remodelers.  Are there any licensing actions or complaints that have been filed  against this builder with the State of Minnesota Department of Labor? Check the status of a license.
