Finding a ContractorAll work done by Oswald Employees

Finding a contractor you can trust can be a challenge. Here are some things to consider, so you know the questions to ask and the answers to look for in order to find a contractor that is worthy of your business.

Finding the RIGHT contractor for your project entails more than just finding the contractor with the lowest price. Even though price is a major factor in choosing a contractor, your ability to communicate and feel comfortable working with your contractor will inevitably prove more important in determining your satisfaction with the job.

This holds true particularly if it is a large project.

  1. Make sure the contractor is properly licensed. Ask the company to provide a copy of their license. It is important that you verify that the license is in good standing. A license is not an endorsement of the quality of the work. It provides some financial protection for you, the customer.
  2. Make sure the contractor is properly insured.
  3. Ask for and check references. Past performance is the best way to learn about a contractor. Request references from previous jobs. Talk to homeowners who the contractor has worked for in the past. Were they satisfied with the work? Was the work finished? Did the contractor keep to the agreed-upon schedule? Did the contractor return phone calls? Would they recommend the contractor?
  4. How long has the company been in business? Most contractors go out of business in the first two years; a strong foundation for a contractor is to have at least five years of experience.
  5. Finalize the contract before starting on a project.
  6. Don’t automatically accept the lowest bid.
  7. Have the contractor fully explain his “change order” policy.
  8. Only pay the final payment once you are satisfied with the completed project.
