Seven Steps to Hiring a Competent, Reliable Contractor
For most homeowners, the hardest part of any home renovation project isn’t the work. It is finding a competent and reliable contractor who will perform at a high level from start to finish.
Choosing the right contractor can make the difference between a successful home renovation project and a total disaster. Follow the steps below to find the right contractor for your project:
1. Start with a Plan – You’ll get a more accurate estimate if you can be very specific in what you want done and the materials you would like to use.
2. Get Recommendations – People in your neighborhood who have done similar projects are your best resource. If you know any architects, designers or subcontractors, ask them who they like working with.
3. Conduct Phone Interviews – Make a quick call to each of your prospects and ask them the following questions:
- Do they take on projects of your size?
- Can they give you a list of previous clients?
- How long have they worked with their subcontractors?
- How many other projects will they have going at the same time?
- How long have they worked as a contractor?
The answers to these questions will reveal the company’s availability, reliability, how much attention they’ll be able to give your project.
4. Meet Face to Face – Pick a contractor who answers all your questions easily and puts your mind at ease. It is crucial that your contractor is a good communicator. Don’t just go for the lowball offer—this could indicate that the contractor cuts corners or, worse, is desperate for work.
5. Investigate – Ask the contractor for a copy of his license and copies of the licenses of the major subcontractors who will work on the job. Check the Better Business Bureau and local courts for complaints or litigation.
6. Call References – Talk to current and former clients. Ask subcontractors if the contractor pays them on time.
7. Get it in Writing – Your contractor’s contract should detail:
- The total cost
- Breakdown of cost
- Scope of work
- Material selections and allowance
- The payment schedule
- How change orders are handled
In any construction or renovation project there can be surprises, faulty wiring, termite damage, water damage, and shoddy repairs/workmanship, but following these steps will ensure your contractor is competent to handle any complications that may arise.
