About me and this blog.

Welcome to Question a Contractor!!

This blog is dedicated to help homeowners make the correct decisions about the contractor that they have or want to hire for the home projects, and to help you understand if they are doing it RIGHT!

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Shaun Farrell. I have been in residential home construction and remodel for 11 years. I own a successful Colorado based residential construction company and I am an ICC certified residential general contractor. Most contractors are certified and or licenced in the county or city in which they routinely work or plan to work. The ICC accreditation is the company that writes the code in which contractors must follow. ICC does their own independent testing that nationally qualifies your license throughout the United states. The ICC allows any person to check the accreditation of a contractor with their agency. Feel free to check on me!! send me an email and I will provide you with a link to look up my licensure.

My reasoning for creating this website is to allow homeowner to accurately critique the contractor in which they choose. Ultimately helping you to avoid disaster, and to obtain the project of your dreams easily and without duress.

In my experience throughout the years I can tell you that about 30 to 50% of my business is correcting previous contractors mistakes. I aim to stop this by hiring the right company the first time!
