Check Your Contractor’s Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you need to be able to trust your contractor completely. 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 will be happy to do so.

Also check out their reputation. 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 planning your project.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

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

Ask About Installation Day

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

  • About how long will the installation 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?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?

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.
