Ask About Their Credentials

No matter the size of your next project, you should be able to trust your contractor 100%. Build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask to see proof of any certifications and certificate of insurance – any contractor worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also take the time to check their reputation. See 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 source to keep in mind when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any concerns you have about your project with your potential home service provider. Are you concerned about how the new flooring you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than Roman shades?

Get the Details on Install Day

Depending on the size of your project, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a walk in the park. No matter what, be sure to get the details for installation day. These are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the whole project take?

  • How many workers might be coming in and out of my house?

  • Will I need to move any furniture or make any other preparations?

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

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?
