As many of you may already know, the U.S. government has decided that Pathway B is the only path remaining in the RREM program. This option leaves the homeowner to choose the contractor of their choice. When choosing a contractor there are many things you need to be aware of and handful of questions you should be asking the contractor during your interviewing process. We listed 4 of these questions below along with our response.
