A Checklist of Questions
to Ask, Before Hiring
A remodeling project is a major investment, so before you hire a contractor, it pays to ask a few questions. Getting estimates from contractors is the easy part, but the contractor who promises to get the job done the fastest & the cheapest isn’t always the best choice. When you’re looking for a reputable company, a few questions will ensure that you get the best remodeling for your money. Here are a few questions you can ask...
What is their permanent business address?
Visit the contractor's place of business, don’t be alarmed if this is a residential address; a good number of contractors do work from home.
What types of insurance do you carry?
Contractors should have, personal liability, workers compensation & property damage coverage. Make sure they are current, otherwise you could be held liable.
May I have a list of references?
A contractor should be able to give you references of at least three clients with projects like yours. A good contractor should have plenty of satisfied customers as well as satisfied suppliers & subcontractors that you can call.
Better Business Bureau
Look up the contractor on the Better Business Bureau's website & see if there are any complaints against the company. Keep in mind that sometimes even good contractors can receive complaints, so if your top choice has one, call them & ask how they resolved their customer’s issue.
Local Building Inspectors
Ask your local building inspector about the contractors your considering. Building inspectors know the good & bad contractors working in their area.
Will My Project Require a Permit?
Most states & localities require permits for building projects. A contractor will get all the necessary permits before starting work on your project.
Who will be here every day?
Depending on the size and structure of the company you hire, the answer could vary widely. Some companies depend on subs to perform specific jobs. If the company uses subcontractors, ask for each sub’s contact information, certification, proof of insurance & references.
How will you communicate with me?
Your contractor likely has specific ways he or she likes to communicate, too — daily emails, texts or maybe just phone calls. Make sure you understand how you will be contacted & receive information.
