President’s Message

Trusted more than ever Sandra Crozier-McKee

Helping you separate the ‘good apples’ from the ‘bad’ Albertans have relied on the BBB’s free consumer services, business reviews, consumer tips and dispute resolution for decades. Since floods swept through 23 southern Alberta communities in June, our organization is more relevant than ever. People left dripping in the flood’s wake gained an entirely new appreciation of the BBB when our “storm chaser” information was circulated throughout the region by media, associations, government officials and by BBB staff themselves who visited communities and sometimes went door to door to get the word out. For peace of mind, the message was clear: avoid being a victim of unscrupulous contractors and false charities by contacting us before you buy or give. Your friends at the BBB have helped consumers make informed buying decisions for more than 100 years. The BBB Serving Southern Alberta and East Kootenay offers you a wide range of free services and programs. You can check out more than four million North American businesses and charities, learn about the latest consumer scam or learn about local organizations with outstanding, ethical practices (our Torch Award recipients) at calgary.bbb.org.

Emergency services and costs can vary Take time to ensure you get a fair offer Whether it’s for a broken furnace, a sewer backup or a gas leak, finding a contractor who responds quickly in emergencies is important to minimizing damage in your home. While every minute counts, doing some quick research could save trouble down the road. Get three written estimates and check credentials before hiring a plumbing, heating, ventilation or air conditioning contractor. In Alberta and B.C., refrigeration and air conditioning mechanics and plumbers must hold a certification of qualification or be a registered apprentice. Gasfitters in Alberta must also hold such certification, while gasfitters in B.C. must be registered contractors or licensed employees of registered contractors to install or alter a gas system. To find out about the qualifications of any contractor you’re considering in Alberta, call Alberta Apprenticeship and Training toll-free at 310-0000 followed by 403-297-6457 or go to tradesecrets.alberta.ca. In B.C., call the Industry Training Authority toll-free at 1-866-660-6011 or visit itabc.ca. Your BBB also recommends checking whether your contractor is properly licensed, asking the contractor for references, and following up on references. If you have to cold-call a contractor because of an emergency, you can make sure you get a

fair offer. Ask for a flat-rate price for the repairs so you can call around and set the job’s price before a contractor arrives. If a contractor won’t give you a flat rate, ask for other options and continue to seek other estimates. How companies charge for their services and products varies widely. When you get an estimate, ask what is provided for the price quoted. Service call rates also vary by region and may not always include the price of repairs. Your contractor should always: • D  iagnose the problem and explain what needs to be done in terms you understand. • A  s a courtesy, use drop sheets, service mats or other equipment to protect the area being worked in. • T  ry to comply with manufacturers’ specifications so warranties remain valid. In some emergencies, a contractor may have to do something that voids your warranty in order to stop the problem quickly. • E  xplain any new guarantee or warranty provided as well as its limitations. • S  how and explain the work that’s been done. • R  echeck the work if you have concerns. To find BBB-accredited plumbing, heating, ventilation or air conditioning contractors, see the listings on pages 37 to 39 or calgary.bbb.org. t

Not all debt services deliver on claims Tempting pitches can put you deeper in debt

Your BBB and the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) warn Canadians to be cautious about companies that claim they can lower your debt owed to creditors. This process is often called debt reduction, debt settlement, debt relief or debt negotiation. “Unfortunately, people do not always see the benefits that debt reduction companies lead them to expect—and some people wind up even deeper in debt than they were before,” says FCAC Commissioner Ursula Menke. “If an offer to reduce your debts seems too good to be true, it probably is.” Some debt reduction companies say they can work out a deal with your creditors that will allow you to pay back just a fraction of the money you owe. If you’re struggling with debt, such an offer can be very tempting. Your BBB and the FCAC advise caution, and these four steps to protect yourself from unscrupulous financial companies. Do a background check. Before agreeing to anything, research whether the company is trustworthy and reputable. In Alberta, call 1-877-427-4088 or visit servicealberta.gov.ab.ca. In East Kootenay, call Consumer Protection BC at 1-888-564-9963 or visit consumerprotectionbc.ca. You can also visit your BBB at calgary.bbb.org. Watch for upfront fees. Many debtreduction companies charge a large service fee

in advance before you see any reduction in your debt. These service fees can cost as much as $1,000 or more. Don’t count on a refund if debt negotiations are unsuccessful. Be cautious about paying any fees before you have written confirmation that the company has worked out a deal with your creditors to reduce your debt. Watch for other service fees, such as ongoing monthly fees and fees for cheques sent to creditors. Know what’s happening with your creditors. A company may encourage you to stop all direct contact with your creditors, offering instead to handle all communications and payments to them. Be aware that letting the company act without your involvement could mean that you know nothing if problems arise. Look for the company to send you copies of all payments sent to debtors. Consider your options. You can deal with your debt in many ways. As a first step, try contacting your creditors on your own. You may be able to get interest rate reductions or work out other arrangements to help you pay your bills. For additional consumer tips, visit calgary.bbb.org/financial. To find BBB-accredited financial providers, see the listings starting on page 25 or visit calgary.bbb.org. t

Nykyforuk has seen countless people in debt turn in desperation to companies that call themselves credit counsellors, debt counsellors, debt settlement or loan consolidators, only to be taken advantage of. Debtors need to use extreme caution with companies that say they can settle your debt for 25 cents on the dollar or will deal with your creditors. Some of these firms are neither licensed nor regulated and lack the jurisdiction or legislative authority to deal with your debt. Such companies have simply found a niche in the market to make money.

Look for a “Licensed Trustee in Bankruptcy” anytime you need financial help. Barry Nykyforuk operates BNA Solutions and is a licensed trustee. He can be reached at 403-232-6220.

trusted insight: home building

Contract is the first step to construction Get written agreement with your general contractor You’ve made the decision: you’re going to build a home from the ground up. Now you likely need a general contractor. A general contractor acts as a project manager— sourcing, hiring, coordinating and often paying employees, subcontractors and suppliers on your behalf. When looking for a general contractor, deal with reputable companies. Ask friends and neighbours for recommendations and ask prospective contractors for references. Once you’ve selected a general contractor, your BBB recommends insisting on a written contract before any construction or renovation work takes place. Service Alberta says the following points should always be included: • A detailed description of the work to be done. Include blueprints if appropriate. • A statement of the type and quality of materials to be used. • A statement of any work that is to be subcontracted (such as plumbing and wiring). • A statement that identifies who is responsible for getting all necessary permits and ensuring inspections and approvals by local authorities. You are ultimately responsible for making sure the permits are in place before work starts. • A statement that all work will be done according to local codes.

www.calgary.bbb.org

• A  statement that the contractor is responsible for removing all debris as soon as construction is completed. • A  clearly itemized payment schedule including any holdback provisions under the Builders’ Lien Act. • A  statement of all warranties explaining what is covered, for how long and what will be done if there are problems. • A  Certificate of Insurance showing the contractor’s public liability and property damage insurance. • I f the work involves a substantial amount of money, you may want to consider additional protection such as a performance bond should the contractor fail to complete the work. • T  he contractor’s Workers’ Compensation Board number. • A  statement outlining any cancellation rights. • A  statement outlining how problems will be resolved. • Y  our signature and that of the contractor’s representative. The contractor must give you a copy of the written contract on or before the date the work begins, or 10 days after you sign the contract.

trusted insight: home interiors

Achieving the perfect union of form and function

Qualified professionals offer aesthetics and project management Interior design is the union of form and function inside a home or workspace. Achieving that perfect union can take considerable time, money and effort—and a qualified interior designer. In Alberta, individuals can become a licensed interior designer (under the Architect’s Association) or a registered interior designer (under the Interior Designers of Alberta or IDA) after proving their professionalism through “education, experience and examination.” In B.C., a professional interior designer may use the designation “registered interior designer” after successfully completing the National Council for Interior Design Qualification. In both provinces, this involves specialized and/or post-secondary education and up to seven years of work in the field. The IDA says qualified interior designers are “trained not only in the aesthetic aspects of design, but also in needs analysis, project and facilities management and problem-solving. In many aspects, they actually create the interior environment.” Your BBB says finding an interior designer is much like finding any other contractor: be sure—check before you buy at calgary.bbb.org.

The Interior Designers of Alberta offers this advice: • C  reate a “wish list” and budget for your project. • D  evelop a timeline for when you want the project completed. • S  eek out a referral list from a professional design association such as the IDA or Interior Design Institute of British Columbia. • C  ontact the designer(s). Present your wish list, budget and timeline. Be sure to ask if there is a charge for the initial consultation. Ask the designers interested in your project to send you a proposal outlining the following: • S  cope of work and timelines. • B  udget, including all fees and contingency allowances. • U  se of subtrades (if required) and supervision of these trades. • P  roof of professional liability insurance coverage. • P  roof of other coverage as may be required (such as Workers Compensation Board). • R  eferences (at least three based on similar project scope and budget). To find BBB-accredited interior designers, see the listings on pages 35 to 37 or calgary.bbb.org. t

trusted insight: home renovations

Plan your project from start to finish

Give prospective contractors the same specifications In Canada, home renovations are a way of life. Each year, about 40 per cent of all households in the country undertake a renovation. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation says slightly more than two-thirds of those renovations are partially or fully contracted out. Before contracting out your next home renovation project, your BBB recommends carefully planning your project from start to finish. “For example, if you’re adding a room you’ll want to figure out exactly how the room will be used and what you want it to look like,” says Sandra Crozier-McKee, president and CEO of the BBB Serving Southern Alberta and East Kootenay. Setting a budget is another important part of planning. If your project involves architectural plans, have them approved before the contractor begins work. When looking for a home renovation contractor (or any other contractor), your BBB says be sure—check before you buy at calgary.bbb.org. Another good way to find a home renovation contractor is through other satisfied customers; ask for references. Check to see whether the contractor is licensed and has the credentials needed for the job. Get at least two or three bids from prospective contractors—all based on the same

48

www.calgary.bbb.org

building specifications, materials, labour and completion time. Before hiring or signing a contract with any contractor, it is important to compare bids. Discuss the bids with each contractor and make sure you understand why they vary. Do not automatically choose the lowest price; one contractor may use higher quality materials or work more thoroughly than another. Avoid contractors who promise a discount if they can use your home to advertise their work, quote a price without seeing the job or refuse to give you a written contract. Verbal agreements are very hard to prove. Once you select a contractor, sign a written contract. The contract should also clearly outline how and when the contractor will be paid; insist on a signed receipt for every payment. Sometimes, even the best-planned home reno project can go wrong. If yours does, start by sending a registered letter to your contractor, stating when you expect the work to be completed and that you will hire another contractor to finish the work. As well, you can file a complaint with your BBB, which can advise you of other options. To find BBB-accredited home renovation contractors, see the listings on page 31 or visit calgary.bbb.org. t

trusted insight: insurance

Purchasing insurance in weatherbeaten Alberta Know what your policy covers before you buy Heavy rain. Pounding hail. Powerful winds. Insurance claims are expected to soar to billions of dollars in 2013 following floods that damaged or destroyed the homes, property, businesses and livelihoods of thousands of southern Albertans. In 2012, severe weather resulted in more than $730 million of insurance claims for damages in Alberta. That, says the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC), added up to 62 per cent of the country’s weather-related claims. Weather-related insurance coverage varies greatly from policy to policy and insurer to insurer. For example, in Canada, damage caused to residential homes and property by overland flooding is not generally covered, although flood insurance coverage can be added to commercial property and business interruption policies. Plus, damage to homes and businesses caused by a sewer backup is only covered if specific sewer-backup coverage is purchased. “People often don’t fully understand what they can claim under their insurance policy unless they’ve experienced a loss,” says Sandra Crozier-McKee, president and CEO, BBB Serving Southern Alberta and East Kootenay. “We encourage them to know and understand,

in detail, what their insurance policy will cover before they purchase it.” Your BBB says the steps to buying insurance is similar to any other purchase: • Ask questions before you commit to a policy, and make sure you understand the answers. • It is important to make sure an insurance representative understands your needs and you are comfortable dealing with that person. That individual is usually your direct link to the insurance company when problems arise. • Check on the licensing of the insurance company. In Alberta, call 310-0000, then 780-427-3035 to contact Alberta Treasury Board and Finance or visit finance.alberta.ca. In East Kootenay, call Consumer Protection BC at 1-888-777-4393 or visit consumerprotectionbc.ca. • For information on an insurance agent, call the Alberta Insurance Council at 1-800-461-3367 or visit abcouncil.ab.ca; in East Kootenay, call the Insurance Council of BC at 1-877-688-0321 or visit insurancecouncilofbc.com.

Home inspection leads to informed purchases

Process helps point out house’s positives, repairs and upkeep Buying a home is often the biggest and most important investment you’ll make. A home inspection is one of the smartest ways to make an informed decision about the physical condition of a home you want to buy. During a home inspection, the physical structure and mechanical condition of a home are examined, from roof to foundation. The inspection is designed to point out the positive aspects of a home, identify problems that may exist, advise of repairs needed and the maintenance needed to keep it in good shape. (It cannot, however, give estimates for repairs and maintenance.) When looking for a home inspector to hire: Check with your BBB or your consumer protection division if you have questions. Be sure—check before you buy at calgary.bbb.org. Look for someone familiar with the type of home you’re considering. Does the inspector specialize in residential or commercial property? Ask prospective inspectors about their professional training and relevant experience. In Alberta and B.C., home inspection business and their employees must be provincially licensed. Look for home inspectors who are committed to avoiding conflicts of interest,

who refuse to be involved in any activity or transaction that could benefit them financially as a result of their inspection work, and who hold the safety, health and welfare of the public paramount in carrying out their duties. Be present during the inspection. Ask questions during or after the inspection. The inspection can last anywhere from two to five hours, depending on the size of the house. Ask when you will receive a copy of the home inspection’s final, written report. Carefully read it and note what needs correction; this will help you to determine your future costs for repairs and maintenance. The report will serve as a useful reference in the future. A home can not fail an inspection; understand that the home inspection report records the condition of the home, both positives and negatives. Another important consideration is that the home inspector must give you a home inspection contract before the inspection. For more information, search for “home inspection tip sheets” at servicealberta.gov.ab.ca or consumerprotectionbc.ca. To find BBB-accredited home inspectors, see the listings on page 34 or calgary.bbb.org. t

trusted insight: electrical

Avoid shock when hiring a contractor

Early research into a business or individual can help you steer clear of potential disputes Even the most confident do-it-yourself home renovator can be intimated by electrical work. It’s one thing to install a new light fixture and quite another to replace an electrical panel. That’s where an electrical contractor can help. In Alberta, electricians must be certified, which involves completing 8,775 hours and 72 months of work experience in their trade and passing an electrical trade exam. In B.C., electricians must hold the interprovincial red seal. Qualified electricians should be able to show you their certification, and as a consumer it’s always worth asking to see it. These credentials aside, your BBB recommends the following tips when hiring an electrical or any other contractor (more tips are included throughout this publication): Deal with a reputable company. Be sure—check before you buy at calgary.bbb.org. Another good way to find an electrician or electrical contractor is through other satisfied customers. Ask the contractor for references, complete with the names, street addresses and phone numbers of past customers. Get estimates in writing, preferably from more than one company, that indicate the start and completion dates, full details of the work and material, and the complete cost.

Ask your municipal government whether the contractor is properly licensed. In Calgary, call 403-268-5521; in Lethbridge, call 403-320-3831; in Medicine Hat, call 403-529-8135; and in Cranbrook, call 604-426-4211. Ask if the contractor belongs to any professional associations, such as the Electrical Contractors Association of Alberta or the British Columbia Electrical Association. If so, contact the association and ask if the contractor’s membership is in good standing. You can also ask the association if it will offer any help should you have problems with the contractor. Verify whether the contractor carries liability insurance. Contractors don’t have to have it, but damage by them to your or your neighbour’s property may not be repaired without coverage. Find out if the contractor takes a deposit or accepts payment before all the work or services are provided. If these funds are collected away from their place of business, a prepaid contracting licence from Service Alberta and security are required. To find BBB-accredited electricians and electrical contractors, see the listings starting on page 24 or calgary.bbb.org. t
