How Can I Find a Good Home Improvement Contractor?

Making the Right Choice

Choosing a home improvement contractor can be an overwhelming and tedious task.  Take your time with this decision and do your homework!  Having a better understanding of renovation lingo and being able to interpret estimates will be a major asset when beginning your remodeling project.

The internet can be your best friend!  Be sure to research online organizations such as, Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List before committing to a contractor.  This is a great way to find out what your contractor and/or contracting company has been up to.  Check their rating and read through reviews.  Get to know who you’re hiring before you invite them in your home.

5 Important Questions To Ask:

  1. Is your contractor fully licensed and insured?
  2. Is your contractor EPA Lead-Safe Certified?
  3. What is included in the offered warranty and how long does the warranty stand?
  4. Does your contractor communicate your needs well?
  5. Does your contractor have references that you can contact regarding previous completed projects?

Red Flags To Look Out For

  • If the contractor shows up late without calling.
  • If the contractor doesn’t show you the product that he will be installing.
  • If the contractor doesn’t show a written warranty.
  • If the contractor doesn’t leave a detailed written estimate.
  • If the contractor doesn’t discuss the lead law.
