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 won’t hesitate to show them.

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 tile you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes?

Ask About 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. Either way, you should ask about the details for installation day. These are a few to get you started.

  • 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?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

  • 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 put your project on hold while you save up the money. Many Cincinnati contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
