First and foremost, clear communication is paramount. If you know what you want the contractor to do for you and can clearly relate that need, your contractor is less likely to misunderstand those instructions.

Reciprocity: in-kind, whether positive or negative, responses for the actions of others. Or…as mentioned in “The Golden Rule”, one should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself. But, do you “expect” something from others when you offer a favor? For me, reciprocity is centered more on “trading” favors than making a negotiation or a contract with another person. Because there is a sense of future obligation with reciprocity it can help to develop and continue relationships with people. I think that’s why “Word of Mouth” advertising is still one of the most effective tools in your Marketing Handbag.

The awareness program is presented by the 50,000 strong International Code Council and in partnership of professional associations like ASHI, the American Society of Home Inspectors.
