    Get It Done Right
    HIRING A CONTRACTOR
    Learning how to hire the right contractor for your home building or remodeling project.

You Need An Expert


If you need to rebuild a section of your home, or want to add to it, you will need an expert to complete the job and make sure you are getting quality workmanship throughout the project. Hiring a contractor to do some renovation is surprisingly detailed, and when it comes to your home, you want to make sure that the final results meet current safety codes and will be exactly as you expected.

  • Contractor Types
    Each subcontractor is an expert

    In order to find for a contractor, people normally turn to the internet, or a phone book. Before searching, make sure you know what type of contractor you need for the job. As an example, you don't hire a contractor who specializes in painting and re-flooring a kitchen to work on your roof. Instead, look for someone who specializes in your type of project, such as an asphalt sealing company to seal up potholes on your driveway.

  • Contractor Credibility
    Contractors have a responsibility

    Whatever the source you use to find for your contractor, make sure that the person is actually licensed by your state and insured for liability and worker's compensation. If the contractor has these in place, the entire renovation job will be less stressful and require less hassle if there is an on-the-job injury or breach of contract. The licensing also provides proof that this contractor knows about the line of work he is licensed to perform.

  • Setting Guidelines
    Laying out the rules

    Once the process of hiring and contracting is finished, the adventure of renovation begins. In order to make sure that the project proceeds smoothly without any hang-ups, you will have to inform your contractor of do's and don'ts around the house. For example, if you want them in or out at a certain time, let them know. Also, make sure you tell them where you keep your pets (if you have any), that way they know to look out for them.

Maintain Your Standards


Overall, the main points when hiring a contractor is to make sure they are credible, and they know what they are doing. If you confirm this in the beginning, the whole process will be much easier than hiring the first guy that appeared after a quick Google search. If they do not meet any or all of the requirements, or are not compatible with you, then your project may be in jeopardy of not being done right, which will cost much more to redo.
