Write a check to the company you hired, not to an employee

Know who you’re paying.

Some unethical employees and/or unethical subcontractors steal from homeowners by convincing them to write checks directly to them or to a different company from the one the homeowner hired. After the money is stolen, the company that performed the work is still owed its fees and can rightfully put a lien against the homeowner’s house.
