Choosing a contractor for work on your biggest investment, your home, can be a daunting task. Construction projects take time, money, and can be stressful even when things go according to plan. To help ensure that you find a good fit for your project, consider avoiding contractors who:
- Won’t give you a detailed estimate or schedule for job completion
- Ask for a large payment upfront
- Have poor communication or lack of communication
- Don’t provide clear or satisfactory answers to your questions
- Can’t provide references
Even when things seem right, if your gut is telling you no-then say no! Once you’ve signed a contract and you’re out of your right to cancel period, it can be very costly to make a change. Putting your home in someone else’s hands requires a lot of consideration, and you shouldn’t feel pressured to make an immediate decision.
