Must-Ask Questions When Working With a Cleveland Contractor

May 29, 2018

Here at Sunburst we’re many things: Cleveland shutter installers, interior fashion professionals, and more. But basically, you could just call us Cleveland contractors.

There’s no shortage of contractors in Cleveland, and it may be hard 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 size of your next 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 check out their reputation. 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 part of the puzzle that you can research 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 Roman shades?

Ask About Installation Day

Depending on the scale of your project, installation day can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a cinch. No matter what, be sure to 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 make any other preparations?

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

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from 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.
