Questions To Ask When Hiring a Hartford Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is many things: Hartford shutter installers, home design experts, and more. But basically, you could just call us Hartford contractors.

There are tons of contractors in Hartford, and it can be hard to pick the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen remodel, new floors, or new window treatments – working with the right team is crucial. Here are some questions to ask the next time you hire a Hartford contractor for your next project.

Ask About Your Contractor’s Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you need to be able to put your trust in 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 provider worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what other customers have said about their services from more than one of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. Reviews are just one thing to consider when planning your project.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

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

Ask About Install Day

Depending on the scale of your project, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a snap. Either way, you should get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • About how long will the full job take?

  • How many workers might be coming into my house?

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

  • How likely is there to be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You might not need to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Many Hartford contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
