Know The Right Questions To Ask When Choosing The Best Remodeling Contractor.
Hiring the right remodeling contractor is the most important element in planning your next project. A remodeling project is an exciting opportunity to transform your existing house into the home of your dreams. An expertly installed space designed specifically for you invigorates your day-to-day and can have a significant impact on your home’s value. Ensuring that impact is positive takes some guidance and research on your part.
What Should I Ask Potential Contractors?
Knowing the right questions to ask makes interviewing potential remodeling contractors easier and gets you the details you need to make informed decisions. Here are the questions we at Foster Remodeling, Inc. recommend you ask:
Insurance Coverage: What type of insurance do you carry and what are the limits to coverage? High-end remodeling firms should carry liability and workman’s compensation insurance so you’re not responsible if one of their workers gets hurt on the job. Ask your contractor to see their Certificate of Insurance before making a decision. If they have a COI, they’ll be sure to show it.
Scheduling: Ask potential contractors if they provide a detailed schedule with benchmarks listed prior to starting your project. This keeps your job on track and minimizes delays.
Warranty: Ask contractors to describe a potential warranty situation and how it was handled. Request written confirmation of your warranty and ensure it clearly details their protocol so you have the information you need prior to getting started!
