How to choose the right contractor
Taking time to search for a suitable professional contractor can help you to save you a lot of time and money.
It pays to do some research at the local library, or on the Internet, to educate yourself about the work you want done. This will help you to negotiate a better deal with the house
Making plans in advance about the type of building or remodeling work you want done will help you to determine the type of independent contractor you need to look for.
Based on your requirements you may need to look for a building contractor, electrical contractor, roofing contractor, remodeling contractor, painting contractor, flooring contractor, bathroom contractor, or a general contractor.
Talk to at least three licensed contractors before you select one of them. Ask them how long they have been in business, and whether they have the necessary licenses and insurance. Enquire about permits that may be needed to complete your project.
Be wary of house contractors who make unsolicited sales calls to your home.
If you plan the work you want done in advance, and can provide the home contractors with specific details, they will be able to provide more accurate estimates of the time and money involved.
Ask the independent contractors to submit quotes for the same job, so you will be able to compare their offers easily.
Ask the service providers for references and make calls to verify their past performance. Ask for financial and bank references to make sure that the contractor is capable of completing the project.
Find out if the home contractors are members of any trade or professional organizations, and verify their background.
