The four most important steps in hiring a company for a construction project on your home
Step 1 - Get Recommendations
Ask friends, family, and neighbors for recommendations. Were they happy with the contractor's performance? Would they hire the contractor again? Ask about the quality of the work and whether or not it was completed on time and for the agreed price.
Step 2 - Check References
A good contractor has satisfied customers; ask the contractor for previous customers. Call the owners if possible and ask the same questions in Step 1.
Step 3 - Get Protection From Risks
Professional contractors always carry liability insurance and Workplace compensation. They comply with building permit and licensing rules. Without this protection, YOU could be liable for any injuries sustained during renovations.
Step 4 - Get it in Writing!
A contract is important for many reasons. Without one there is little you can do if the work is done poorly or is incomplete. You risk being charged far more than expected and it's unlikely you will get any warranty or after sales service. Professional contractors always provide customers with a clear written contract.
