A home improvement project can be very stressful, but you can make it less stressful by choosing your contractor carefully. The key to success is to check out everything before you part with your money.
Before You Set the Appointment
Before you invite someone to come into your home, ask the questions that will help you select the contractors to interview face-to-face.
1. Are you bonded, licensed and insured?
Usually bonding and insurance companies require contractors to have licenses, which serves to provide the homeowner with peace of mind. In the event that you suffer some kind of loss due to the contractor’s performance (or non-performance), you will not have the same recourse with an unlicensed contractor.
2. Are you a remodeling specialist?
Anyone who watches “This Old House” knows that unforeseen situations arise, and a remodeling specialist is accustomed to dealing with those circumstances.
3. Do you have experience with_________? How many years?
Make certain they have relevant experience to the project you are considering.
4. Where is your office and/or showroom?
It’s important that the contractor has the stability of a place of business. It’s also important if you need to track them down.
