Next Steps...Hiring a Contractor

What to do next:

Once you have your budget outlined, the next step is to obtain written estimate(s). You will want to not only compare prices but also the level of professionalism, experience and quality of the contractors' work.

When meeting with a contractor, take some time to talk with them. It is important to take the time to get a feel for your comfort level with them. Is this someone you will be comfortable working with and inviting into your home? Be sure to pay attention to things like timeliness and knowledge in discussing your project. A contractor who shows up late to your appointment is likely to show up late when working on your project. A contractor who is knowledgeable will offer input and insight regarding your project needs. Be sure to find out if there is a charge for the initial consultation.

An important part of the process of hiring a home improvement contractor is confirming that they have the proper license and insurance. Working with a contractor who isn’t licensed or doesn’t have the proper insurance just may come back to haunt you.

The next step is to request references of the contractor you are considering. When talking to prior clients, you will want to ask specific questions about their experience with the contractor. Find out whether or not they showed up on time, cleaned their work area and acted professionally on the job, for example. Most importantly, how would the client describe their finished home improvement project?

The final step is to hire your contractor. Be sure prior to signing a contract that you discuss with them a timeline for the completion of the project to help ensure that you are in agreement on it.
