Check Their Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you should be able to trust your contractor 100%. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for proof of any certifications and certificate of insurance – any home service professional worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also check out their reputation. Find out what past customers have said about the contractor from more than one of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one thing to consider when looking at your options.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your home better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any concerns you have about your project with any potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new tile you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than wood blinds?

Ask About Installation Day

Depending on what your project is, install can be grueling and long, or it could be a snap. For any size project, you should get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the whole install take?

  • How many workers will be coming into my house?

  • Do I need to cover any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • How likely is there to be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?
