Tips for Choosing the Best Home Improvement Contractor

Thursday, June 15th, 2017 by Danny Peterson

Hiring a home improvement contractor is an important decision. This is your home we are talking about – it is an important foundation for you and your family – which is why you can’t put it in the hands of just any contractor. Follow these tips for choosing the best home contractor for your project.

Start by asking your family and friends for referrals and check the National Association for the Remodeling Industry in your area—they can provide you with a list members. Another great strategy is to pay a visit to your local lumberyard, they see contractors regularly and know which ones buy quality materials, and the ones pay their bills on time.

Once you have assembled a list of possible candidates, make a quick call to each of them and ask the following questions:

  • Do they take on the size of project you are considering?
  • Are they able and willing to provide references?
  • Can they give a list of previous clients with contact information?
  • Have they successfully completed multiple projects the size of yours in a timely fashion?
  • How many other projects do they have going on right now?
  • Do they offer warranty or guarantee on their work?

The answers to these questions will reveal their availability, reliability, and integrity. Moreover, insist on seeing proof of insurance and other documents that will protect you, should you decide to move forward.

Based on your phone interview and research, pick three or four contractors you are interested in talking to in-depth. Insist on meeting them face to face. Make sure you call former clients of theirs and ask about the finished product and level of client satisfaction – consider asking to see the final product or inquire about visiting a job site to witness the company at work –
