Finding the Right Contractor
Step 1: Get recommendations
The first step in finding the right Home Improvement Contractor is to create a list of 10–15 local contractors who have the right expertise. You’ll gradually narrow down this list to the top contenders and ultimately use it to select your contractor, so it’s best to include more names than you’ll need at this point.
There are several ways you can compile your starter list:
- Ask your homeowner friends for recommendations, especially those who have recently had renovations.
- Search online for the type of service you need in your area.
- Check out online reviews.
- Use social media to ask friends or followers for local recommendations.
Successful contractors will make it easy for you to get in touch with them and see examples of their work. Be cautious of home improvement contractors who lack basic information, such as a website, social media presence and reviews.
What to Look for in a Home Improvement Contractor
Home Improvement work can be very simple or quite involved. Either way, work is being done on one of your most expensive assets; mistakes can be costly and cause stress. But consumers can prevent a large amount of trouble by doing their “homework” before the work starts.
Decide on exactly what you need or want to have done. Be able to communicate it clearly. If you have photos of similar work, use them. You will have a much better chance of getting what you want.
If the size of the project is large, you may need to speak with an architect. But don’t wait until the last minute to bring in your home improvement contractor as well. Having the contractor and architect working together from the beginning will alleviate many potential problems.
