Check Their Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor with your home. Build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask to see proof of their contracting license and insurance – any home service professional worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what past customers have said about their services from some of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any concerns you have about the job with your potential home service provider. Are you concerned about how the new tile you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than wood blinds?

Ask About Install Day

Depending on how big your project is, install can be grueling and long, or it could be a walk in the park. Either way, be sure to get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

  • How many contractors will be coming into my house?

  • Do I need to cover 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?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You don’t always have to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Many Hartford contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
