But in the end, you could just call us Cleveland contractors. There’s no shortage of contractors in Cleveland, and it might be tricky to choose the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen remodel, new flooring, or new window treatments – picking the right team is important. Here are some questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Cleveland contractor for your upcoming project. 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. They’re 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 wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes? Remember to speak up and get the answers that matter to your project! 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 cover any furniture or make any other preparations? Will there be any fumes or dust 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 offer payment options or financing assistance. Sunburst Shutters Cleveland is one of those contractors that offer financing.
