You have to ask the right questions.

Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Home Improvement Contractor

How many similar projects have you completed in the past year?

In the home improvement industry, experience counts and seeing is believe, as they say. So do not be afraid to ask for references or examples of previous work. While it is impossible to see exactly what you will be getting, looking at similar projects can give you a very good idea of the contractor’s work. A contractor should be able to provide you with a list of projects and references.

Will my contract require a permit? Is that something you handle?

Most areas require permits for building projects. It is important to determine if your project will require such a permit and if the contractor will handle all of the permitting.

Are you insured?

If your contractor isn’t properly insured, you could be held liable if something goes wrong. So don’t be afraid to ask for copies of the insurance certificates.

Who will be my point of contact?

Will you be communicating directly with the home improvement contractor, or will you be dealing with subcontractors on a day to day basis?
