This would be true for both the project itself and the contractor you’re hiring. Of course, you’ll want to have a clear picture of what you want the outcome to be, and an realistic budget of what you’re able to spend. In terms of the contractor, you want to keep to on professionals who can show their experience with your kind of project, preferably through testimonials and actual work samples. Certainly, you’ll want an accredited and insured contractor. Talk to several contractors. The moment you find two or three contractors who look capable of doing the job, you’ll want to talk to them and ask questions. Ask them whether or not they’ve handled a similar project before, if they are certain they can pull the necessary permits, and how long they estimate the job will take. As they answer, listen very close and try to look for cues for professionalism. As they will be frequenting your home, you want to have someone you can be comfortable with and who seems capable of delivering excellent work. Get estimates. When reviewing estimates, make sure all details are provided, especially the cost of each material to be used and a price for the total predicted number of labor hours. Understand that the cheapest choice may not always be the best. Do your homework as to how much a project like yours will likely cost. Be sure to look into factors such as experience and available work samples. Sometimes, a bigger upfront cost is worth it in the long run if that means a trouble-free transaction. Put everything in writing. Lastly, after choosing a contractor you feel is the perfect fit for your project, be sure to put all the terms of their quote into legal writing. This contract must indicate items like the schedule of your payments and the process for making changes to the original terms of the project. Of course, it must also be signed by both parties. While no one wants to think of a bad result, having a signed contract will provide legal recourse in the event you need it for any reason within the course of your project. Keep in mind that true professionals know that putting terms in writing does not only protect you but also themselves. Therefore, you shouldn’t hesitate enforcing this requirement. It’s all part of being a responsible consumer.
