Finding a good contractor that you are comfortable with is important. If something goes wrong when doing home improvements it can certainly hurt your wallet. Don’t be fooled by a contractor with an awesome ad! This doesn’t mean that the quality of work is better than a contractor that was referred to you by a neighbor. It’s actually a great idea to ask friends and family if they’ve hired a contractor before and how their experience was.
Here are 4 things to consider before hiring a contractor:
Get Estimates – Once you have a couple of options for contractors be sure and get written estimates from each of them. Choosing the lowest bid may not always be the best. Be sure to always ask for an explanation to see if there’s a reason for the difference in price.
Ask Questions – Never shy away from asking questions regarding permits, references, insurance, or subcontracting. These are normal things to inquire about and it good to know exactly who you are working with.
Payment Options – It’s always good to know how and when payments will be made for your project. Never pay cash as you want to have a record of payments on home improvements. For larger projects, you may need to consider making financial arrangements with your bank.
Get a Written Contract – A contract should be clear and concise to include the cost of your project and who, what, when and where of your project. The contract will also let you know the projected time it will take to finish your project.
