How to Choose a Contractor

Penny Siml - Monday, June 15, 2015

Choosing a contractor for your custom home project is crucial to the building process.

If you are getting ready to embark on a new home or remodeling project, remember that there is more involved than the work itself. Before you get to the fun part of picking fixtures, cabinets, etc., here are a four things to keep in mind when choosing a contractor.


Finding a Contractor

Check your local Better Business Bureau for contractors to make sure there are no unresolved complaints against the company or person you are interested in hiring. You can also check with the attorney general's office in your state for a list of contractors.


Questions to Ask

Ask your potential contractor to see property damage, liability, and workers' compensation insurance and make sure the policies are up to date. Also, ask if they have ever filed for bankruptcy.


Check References

Take the time to check three or four references of past clients. Find out if the projects were completed on time, if the contractor responded to their calls and if they were kept in the loop about the progress of their projects. Don't forget to ask about how the contractors left the workspace after they left and how they respected your living situation.



Meet with your contractor to see if they are a good fit for you and your daily living routine. They will be around your home and family for the duration of the project. You will have to deal with your contractor on a consistent basis during a time when stress can get high. Make sure they are pleasant, knowledgeable and reliable. Make sure you feel as though they will listen to your needs and take into account your lifestyle.
