We’ve put together a few tips for you to consider when choosing a contractor.

Check credentials and disciplinary history

There are several areas to examine, so look for someone who has been in business for a while that is licensed and registered. Every state has different rules, so check contractors-license.org or contact your local building inspector. Make sure the company has insurance (i.e. liability and worker’s comp) in addition to a solid reputation and clean bill of health from the Better Business Bureau. It also doesn’t hurt to check your state’s consumer protection agency.

Get bids

Talk to friends, family, and neighbors. Ask them if the contractor showed up and finished on time. Were there any unexpected costs? When you’re ready, separate the good from the bad, get bids from your top three prospects and toss out the lowball offer. Yes, that’s what I said, TOSS OUT THE LOWBALL OFFER! We’re all looking for value, but if someone comes in several thousand dollars below the others, he’s probably cutting corners somewhere (like cheap materials, less attention to detail, etc…) or may start the project only to tell you down the line that it’s more complicated than initially assumed, which translates to more money out of your checking account. Follow these rules so you don’t invite trouble.

Think beyond price

You’re going to be spending a lot of time with this contractor, so not only do you have to feel comfortable with the price that you’ve been quoted, but you should also feel comfortable with their personality, background, methods and communication skills. Don’t hesitate to ask the following questions: Is everyone clear about the project at hand? Are we sure everyone is on the same page? If not, you could end up disappointed, frustrated, and possibly out several thousand dollars beyond your budget.

Contract, contract, contract

Every project should have a contract, no matter the size or cost. Every detail about the project should be included in this contract: work timetable (start and finish dates), description of the work, materials to be used (right down to the brand & make of the fixtures), the payment schedule and everything in between. This includes a time limit for fixing defects. That way, if a dispute arises, it’s not endless. If you decide to expand the project, make sure a change order is added before the additional work is started.
