Must-Ask Questions When Hiring a Dallas Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is many things: Dallas shutter installers, home fashion professionals, and more. But basically, you can just call us Dallas contractors.

There are tons of contractors in Dallas, and it may be tricky to pick the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new flooring, or new window treatments – picking the right team is essential. These are a few questions to ask the next time you hire a Dallas contractor for your next project.

Check Your Contractor’s Credentials

No matter the size of your next project, you need to be able to trust your contractor with your home. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask to see proof of their contracting license and insurance – any home service professional worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what other customers have said about the contractor from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your home better than you, so don’t be afraid to voice any questions or concerns you have about your project with any potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new tile you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than wood blinds?

Get the Details on Installation Day

Depending on how big your project is, installation day can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a cinch. No matter what, it’s important to get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole project take?

  • How many installers will be coming in and out of my house?

  • Do I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • Will there be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Plans

You don’t always need to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Lots of Dallas contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
