Ask About Their Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you need to be able to trust your contractor with your home. You can build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for proof of their contracting license and insurance – any home service provider worth the money will be glad to oblige you.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what past customers have said about their services from more than one of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one thing to consider when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have about your project with your potential contractor. Are you concerned about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes?

Get the Details on Installation Day

Depending on what your project is, installation day can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a cinch. No matter what, you should get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • About how long will the full job take?

  • How many contractors might be coming into my house?

  • Will I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • Will there be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Options

You don’t always need to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Most Cleveland contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
