ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS IN HIRING A REMODELING CONTRACTOR

When you are deciding on a contractor for your remodeling project, it is not only important to ask questions, but it is also important to ask the right questions. Questions like “When can you start?” and “How long will it take?” are both good questions, but better questions might be “How long have you been in business?” “What will be your approach to this project?” and “Does your company carry workers compensation and liability insurance?” You may also want to ask questions like “Are you a Certified Green Professional?” and “Are you a Lead Paint certified contractor?” These are all questions to ask to help you, as a homeowner, make an educated decision as to who to hire for your remodeling project.

An important thing to remember when asking these questions is that sometimes a non-answer may give you more useful insight into who a particular remodeler is, than an actual answer. Ask questions, listen to the answers, and then follow your instincts. Once you decide on a particular contractor, then you can discuss when they will start, what time they will be arriving at your house each morning and when you will have your home to yourselves again. These are all important concerns that can be discussed later at a pre-construction meeting.
