Who's helping you remodel? Contractor hiring tips

by Rhonda Burd 11/21/2022

If you’re planning a major home remodel, contractor selection should be at the top of your to-do list. Home remodeling contractors are specialists in working with your existing home to help you achieve your goals. They can also help you navigate logistics like obtaining all the necessary permits and selecting building materials.

But how do you choose the right contractor? Before making your home a job site, here are some tips to consider:

How to hire a remodeling contractor

The first step to finding a quality contractor is to ask others for recommendations. This will provide you with an excellent starting point, and help you get important information about the overall experience of working with them.

You can also research local contractors online. Try to find a contractor experienced in the specific projects you need help with, like bathroom or kitchen remodeling.

Some contractors work independently, while others might work with larger construction firms. Investigate both kinds of contractors and compare their credentials and reviews.

Questions to ask a remodeling contractor

Once you find some possible contractors, it’s time to interview them. Some questions you should ask include:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Do you offer liability insurance?
  • What is the timeline for project completion?
  • What is your preferred method of communication?
  • Do you offer a warranty for service or building materials?

These are only some questions a qualified home remodeling contractor will be able to answer for you. Obtaining this information will help you determine whether you’re choosing the best person for the job.
