How to Choose a Contractor

Here are some useful tips to consider when hiring a contractor for your residential or commercial project:

  • Choose a contractor you feel comfortable with.
  • Verify that your contractor is insured. Ask for a “Certificate of Insurance” showing both liability (for your property) and worker’s compensation (for their workers).
  • Ask for and contact references. Ask about the contractor’s reliability, quality of work, and whether they stuck to their price and timeline.
  • Review the contractors’ professional affiliations. For example, the Better Business Bureau.
  • Ask for home improvement or an appropriate contractor license.
  • Make sure to get a written contract that clearly states the scope of the project, price and timeline for completion.
  • Be wary of contractors that compete based on price alone. Cheap does not equal quality!
