SERVICE VALIDATION FORM
[Contractor's Application For Work]
*The private home setting is a social business organization. An intact application process for contractors serves to remind residents that our homes are legitimate business operations. In turn, we are reminded, like commercial businesses, we should take special care to ensure that those we hire are the right fit for our organizational objectives. The application process is the beginning for accessing this vital information. [HGRBS]

“Service,” in this regard, is what we require from building tradesmen/women engaged in home maintenance and improvement. For our purposes, these are otherwise referred to as contractors. But how do we know those who claim to be reliable home service providers are telling the truth? What if the service they offer is shoddy? What if their intents are to take our money without doing anything we expect? Are we going to gamble with the well-being of our household on a hunch unknown contractors are going to deliver as promised? Or will we require reasonable proof of their competence?
*VALIDATION [the action of checking or proving the validity or accuracy of something. - Oxford Dictionary].
Evidently, the most responsible private home heads are reluctant to hire unless there is reasonable proof of contractors’ overall reputation for delivering on promises made to residents. We need to evaluate them, first. However, for purposes at hand, there is a preference for the term validate since it represents a more accurate approach to fact-finding. Subsequently, when referring to the process of validating creedence of information contractors share with residents, it is referred to as Validation.
Summarily, when we require unknown building tradespersonnel to first take the Service Validation Form (application) with them to fill out, we break the traditional mold i.e., we insist on contractors first filling out an application for work as opposed the customary practice of not requiring it.
Subsequently, the contractors application for work is for purposes of residents formally evaluating credibility of contractors. This is done through checking out all information contractors provide via various legally accessible data sources for validation i.e., service validation.
A FEW IMPORTANT POINTS
*In matters of contract-related home maintenance and improvement, the Service Validation Form is among the most crucial tools for us to use. This is the form which we physically hand to contractor candidates along with a numeric instruction sheet for filling it out.
*It is recommended that we physically hand this form to the contractor to fill out ELSEWHERE, then to return it 100% complete with a MINIMUM five (5) recent residential references for whom the contractor candidates claim to have done the same or similar work.
*Your “Service Validation Form,” is regarded as the FIRST contractor screening document proposed for standardization among private home heads of all 50 states (including the District of Columbia).
