Check Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of how big or small the job is, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor with your home. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for copies of their contracting license and insurance – any contractor worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what other customers have said about their services from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. Reviews are just one part of the puzzle that you can research when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have about the job with your 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?

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

  • How many contractors will be coming into my house?

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

  • Will there be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?
