Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Home Contractor

Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Home Contractor

Knowing your contractor and their company is vital when hiring for a remodeling project. You should hire someone you trust who is honest and trustworthy. You should also seek someone with a history of creating well-built and beautiful projects. Asking them questions is the best way to determine whether they will be an excellent fit for you and the project. Below are some questions that can be vital to figuring out who you could be working with.

“What is your experience with similar projects?”:

It is essential to know that they either have experience with similar projects or have the skills to bring together a project you are asking for. You should ask for a project portfolio if there is no website. This portfolio should include several similar projects that will allow you to see their work. It is okay if they have little experience in the specific area you are looking for. However, you want a contractor you trust to do the job efficiently and with good quality workmanship.

“How will the project be managed?”:

This is a vital question to ask because the answer to this question will determine the ease of your entire remodel. Our company, Framestead, prides itself on having dedicated project managers. This way, your project is always a top priority. Since the managers have limited jobs, they can be readily available for the clients and be right there for the project. A good relationship between the homeowner and the project manager is crucial for a smooth and stressless project.

“What is the estimated timeline for the project?”:

This is a good question that needs to be addressed at the beginning of the project process. This is an important question to ask MULTIPLE contractors so that you can compare and select the most realistic one. You should pick a contractor that fits your desired timeline. Suppose you are still looking for a contractor to provide the project with the expected timeline. In that case, it is recommended that you do more research on your project and see if your timeline expectations are realistic.

“What is a realistic budget for a project like mine?”:

Although you will want the best, knowing what it will cost is essential. This is another reason why it is so vital to hire someone that you trust. So many companies will take advantage of homeowners and charge for unnecessary things. Researching and determining the average cost of the project you desire is essential. Understanding costs will help you stand up for your budget and flag companies that seem to be after money. However, it is crucial to remember that good quality work may cost more than lesser quality work. Again, this is why getting to know the company’s people is essential before you make a final decision.
