Find a Good Home Contractor and Great
Choosing a Responsible Contractor
Make sure that the Contractor
knows and has performed the work you are asking their company to perform. This
may sound obvious however it is surprising how often a second
with more experience has to be called in to complete someone else's work. This
usually costs more because the second contractor generally has to repair the
efforts of the first then go ahead and complete the job.
Don't be afraid to ask for references from the Contractor's
previous customers. If the contractor is solid, with more than a few years in
the business, then his company will likely have a number of references that they
can refer to. If they do not then are you sure you want them working for you.
Ask about the size of the Contractor's
business. Will the person you're talking to be doing the work himself or are you
going to be dealing with his employees. Neither is necessarily bad simply
different and different sized businesses are better suited for different sized
jobs. If you are removing and replacing the side of your house then you may want
to look for a company that has a number of employees. This means that the work
should be able to be completed in a reasonable time frame with as little
disturbance as possible. If however you are repairing the roof of your house you
may want a smaller company where the contractor is doing all of the work
How busy is the Contractor.
Will he be able to complete the job in a timely fashion or are you going to be
waiting for a month for him to get to you. If you spell out these things in
advance then there are fewer unpleasant surprises. Good contractors tend to be
busy. If you have found the Contractor
you are sure is right for the job then you may not mind the fact that you have
to wait for him to get to your job. If you know in advance that is.
Talk to more than one Contractor.
Opinions vary from person to person, company to company. The work that you wish
to have performed can sometimes be done in several different manners. If you
have only talked to one Contractor
about it then you have only got one professional opinion to go by. By talking to
more than one contractor you get far more information on which to base a
