Six Steps to Hiring a Competent, Reliable Contractor
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, family, and friends who have done similar projects are your best resource. You can also try searching the internet for reviews under Better Business Bureau, local community associates, or groups like Facebook, to give you an idea as to what you might expect from a potential contractor.
3. 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. Your ‘gut instinct’ will tell you a lot about how you should proceed.
Check the Better Business Bureau, Registrar of Contractors and local courts for complaints or litigation and to verify licensing. Beware of those that have a license but not the proper licensing for the job you want completed.
5. Call References
Talk to current and former clients. Ask subcontractors if the contractor pays them on time.
6. Get It in Writing
Per Arizona Registrar of Contractors guidelines, your contractors contract should detail:
- The total cost
- Breakdown of cost
- Scope of work
- Material selections and allowance
- The payment schedule
- How change orders are handled
- Name, address, license # of contractor
- Name, address of owner/jobsite, and description of work
- The date of agreement
- Estimated start and completion dates
- Deposit amount and payment schedule
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 enough to handle any complications that may arise.
