When searching for a home remodeling contractor, you’re sure to have plenty of questions. Here are a few questions to ask potential home remodeling contractors when planning a home improvement project.
Questions to Ask a Home Remodeling Contractor
How long have you been in business?
A contractor with a lot of years under its belt is a good sign. A long history shows that the contractor has established a good reputation in the community it serves that has allowed it to weather economic downturns. In addition, a long history means that the contractor has been able to establish a network of subcontractors and suppliers that bring it buying power and a wealth of material resources.
Who are your suppliers?
Ask where the contractor gets their supplies. If they use quality sources, you can verify that you’ll be getting a good build quality. If they hesitate, they may go with cheaper sources that are of lesser quality.
Is your bid an estimate or fixed?
Estimated bids can end up costing a lot more than the original quote. Resolving variables before the project begins can help solidify the price. Bids should also be itemized in order to determine the components of the total quote, as well as to make it easier to compare contractors’ prices.
