Most licensed contractors are competent, honest, hardworking, and financially responsible. And yet almost everyone knows someone who has a nightmare story to tell about a remodeling job: the length of time it took; the inconvenience of the noise and dust; or the cost overruns associated with even the smallest project. Choosing a contractor with the lowest bid comes with a high cost.
Adding a room or updating a kitchen can cost more than a new car, and consumers should take time and care in planning a home improvement project. Unfortunately, most consumers spend less time choosing a contractor than they do choosing a car.
Here are a few tips for choosing the right contractor:
- Determine the type of Contractor you need for your project
- Be sure they have a VA Contractors license
- Check their references
- Get bids (remember the lowest price isn’t always the best price)
