Ask About Their Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you need to be able to trust your contractor completely. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask to see proof of any certifications and insurance – any home service professional worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what other customers have said about the contractor from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one thing to consider when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any questions or 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 wood blinds?

Ask About Install Day

Depending on the size of your project, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a snap. For any size project, it’s important to get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole install take?

  • How many installers will be coming in and out of my house?

  • Do I need to cover any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • How likely is there to be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?
