How do I choose a contractor? This is something you may be asking yourself and it is indeed an important question to have the answer to before you begin any home renovation project.
First and foremost, go with your gut. If something doesn’t feel right when you meet with a potential contractor, it probably isn’t. You want to feel comfortable with your choice because, in a way, you will be living together for the duration of your project.
Know that getting the lowest price isn’t always the best way to go. Sometimes when a contractor comes in with a cheaper bid, it is because they are using cheaper quality products and you are getting less quality workmanship.
And lastly, Look for years of experience and recent references so that you can actually talk to clients who know the contractor’s work first hand. Don’t be afraid to ask for references. A contractor that does their job well will have nothing to hide!
