How to choose between different contractors?

Sometimes it makes sense to hire a professional rather than take on a job yourself. But choosing the wrong contractor can lead to delays, and  fatal mistakes.

These guidelines will help you choose the right contractor and ensure a good working relationship

Pick a Contractor Who Specializes in Your Project Type

Professional contractors can easily overtake potential problems and perform the work   correctly as they have enough expertise.

Have a Detailed Contract in Place Before any Work Begins

The contract should cover costs, brands of  items being installed, approximate start and finish dates, and the complete set of  drawings being used with written specifications.

Find out Who’s Performing the Work

Will the person you’re hiring do the work himself, or will it be subcontracted to someone else?

Often involve multiple subcontractors, such as  electricians, gardeners and plumbers. General

contractors often subcontract specialty jobs, like roofing or vinyl siding, to subcontractors.

 

Give the Contractor Guidelines for Working In or Around Your Home

If you don’t want the workers showing up before a certain time, staying past a certain hour, using     your bathroom, or you need to have the project   finished by a specific date, tell the contractor      before you hire him.

Look at Work Samples

This lets you see a contractor’s handiwork and may  spark ideas for your project. Samples are more important  than references.

Looking at a contractor’s past projects also lets you see  the variety of work the company has performed, such as  contemporary, Craftsman, or historic designs.
