Contractors 4 Tips to Help You Choose
At Pro Remodeling, we want to help you make the best buying decision for your Home Renovation Project. We believe that when you have the right information, you will be more confident in your decision. So we have provided you with 4 tips to help choose theContractor you are considering hiring.
Remember Before You Sign That Contract:
1. Be Specific: Make sure all planned renovations are outlined in writing. Include each detail and an agreed on price. Request that Change Orders be written and priced out if any additional services beyond the original scope of the contract (that are either necessary to complete the original job or requested by you the homeowner) are provided.
2. Be Secure: Make sure your contractor is trustworthy and solvent by asking: "How long has he been in business?" "How he is rated by the Better Business Bureau?" "Will he will provide a list of previous clients with similar projects?" "Can he prove that he pays his suppliers on time?" And finally, "Can he prove he is in good standing with his bank?"
Knowing these answers and following our 4 tips will help you make an informed decision about choosing your contactor.
3. Set Your Standards: Ask whether his workers are actual Company Employees. Are they managed directly by him? Having direct employees working on projects guarantees you can expect a standard level of competency, but if he hires subcontractors (who may have a varied standard by which they measure their work), you may want to rethink your decision. Don't forget to ask if the labor and materials come with any guarantee.
4. Hire Locally: Ask where his company is located. Does he have an office? Is he local? Is his labor local? Will the money you spend stimulate the local economy?
