Questions To Ask When Hiring a Cincinnati Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is many things: Cincinnati shutter installers, home fashion experts, and more. But when it comes down to it, you could just call us Cincinnati contractors.

There are tons of contractors in Cincinnati, and it may be difficult to pick the best one for you. Whether you’re planning a kitchen remodel, new floors, or new window treatments – working with the right team is essential. Below are some questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Cincinnati contractor for your upcoming project.

Ask About Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you should be able to trust your contractor 100%. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask for copies of their contracting license and insurance – any home service professional worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what past customers have said about the contractor from multiple 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 planning your project.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your home better than you, so don’t be afraid to voice any concerns you have about your project with your potential home service provider. 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 choice than Roman shades?

Get the Details on Install Day

Depending on what your project is, installation day can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a walk in the park. No matter what, you should ask about the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

  • How many installers might be coming in and out of my house?

  • Will I need to cover any furniture or make any other preparations?

  • Will there be any fumes or dust 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?

Find Out Your Payment Options

You might not need to wait and save for months to schedule your home improvement project. Lots of Cincinnati contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
