Looking to remodel or add-on to your home can be a big decision that requires a lot of time and money. Finding a professional contractor can be a detrimental part of a home project. It is important to find a contractor you can not only trust and feel comfortable with, but also one that meets the standards of the state while maintaining a safe and clean worksite with quality results.
The top things to look for before hiring a contractor:
A contractor who is licensed means they are meeting state requirements, but also meeting the requirements needed for a home resale.
Contractors with insurance means they are insured to not only protect themselves and their employees while they are on your property, but also any injury that may occur on your property, protecting you from being liable. Accidents happen, and it is a contractor’s responsibility to be prepared.
Experience and Reputation
Finding a contractor that has a well-rounded experience level and a positive reputation is an important aspect in the search for the right fit. Experience can vary in years as well as the variation in projects. It is important to note that experience does not always result in the best reputation, and that is why it is important to do your research and never hesitate to ask for references.

As with most things, communication is key. Relying on a professional to take your home in their hands and complete a project you are not only visualizing but paying for is a huge deal. Communication starts from the moment you call a contractor and should be taken very seriously. Whether it is answering questions, confirming dates, times, and general understandings of what will come next, it is important that the communication be open and frequent and ensure the satisfaction and security of the project at hand.
One of the most important aspects of hiring a contractor is making sure your contract is provided, understood, and meets all the requirements necessary to ensure the project be completed correctly for both you and your contractor.
