Steps to a Successful Contractor Experience
- Communicate your needs. Before you begin interviewing contractors, clearly define your goals, your timeframe, and your budget for the project. Then communicate those to the contractor(s).
- Ask around. Ask family, friends, and neighbors for recommendations. Word of mouth is often the best way to find a contractor.
- Research. Compile your list of possible candidates and research them online.
- Interview your favorites. Invite them to your home and request a free estimate for the work including materials, timelines, and labor costs.
- Assess the interviews. Were they attentive and timely in their responses, detailed in their estimates, and respectful of your time and property?
- Determine their policies on the use and management of subcontractors.
- Review the contract. Make sure it contains the project scope, pricing and payment schedule, timeline, warranties, dispute resolution, and any of your specific requirements.
- Trust your instincts. Choose the contractor who most resonates with you in their professionalism, expertise, communication, and grasp of your goals.
Check to see if they have experience in your type of project.
Verify licenses and insurance.
Review their portfolio and references.
Check for fraud. Type in the contractor’s name and the word fraud after it in your search engine: For example, John Doe Fraud.
Check their rating on the Better Business Bureau website.
Do they have an established network of vetted subcontractors?
Who will oversee the subcontractors’ work?
