Research and preparation can make your home remodeling project smooth and stress-free. You need to learn about the home improvement process and the materials you will use, but more importantly, you need to learn more about your contractor. All States Exteriors, the top home remodeling company in our area, discusses the critical questions you need to ask your remodeling contractor:
- Do You Have a License? Different areas have different requirements on whether contractors must obtain credentials before they can begin working on a home. As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to make sure that a prospective contractor has obtained all the required certifications that are specific to their field of expertise. A licensed contractor has shown that they have the required knowledge and skills to handle your project.
- What Is Our Project Timeline? You need to have a clear picture of when your contractor will start and complete your home remodeling project. You also need to know about any circumstances that might affect your schedule. Ask your contractor upfront about any projects they are working on that may affect the schedule of your project. You also need to ask them about how they will handle necessary changes to the project schedule in case something comes up.
- How Long Have You Been in Business? It’s important to choose an experienced contractor for your project because an established contractor has worked through a lot of the growing pains of a new business. An experienced company like us has many systems and controls that make sure that our projects are on time, on budget and of the best quality. We have the necessary knowledge and expertise to make sure your project runs smoothly.
These are just a few of the important questions you should ask your prospective contractor before working with them on your home remodeling project. When talking with your contractor, it’s important for you to get as much detail about the project and to get a sense of their communication style. Fortunately, when you work with us, we’ll provide you with as much information as you need.
