Must-Ask Questions When Hiring a Bluff City Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is a lot of things: Bluff City shutter installers, interior fashion professionals, and more. But when it comes down to it, you could just call us Bluff City contractors.

There’s no shortage of contractors in Bluff City, and it may be tricky to pick the best one for you. Whether you’re planning a kitchen renovation, new floors, or new window treatments – picking the right team is vital. Here are a few questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Bluff City contractor for your next project.

Check Their Credentials

No matter the size of your next project, you should be able to trust your contractor completely. 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. See what past customers have said about their services from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. Reviews are just one thing to consider when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about your project with any potential contractor. 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 idea than Roman shades?

Get the Details on Installation Day

Depending on what your project is, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a snap. Either way, be sure to get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the full job take?

  • How many people will be coming into my house?

  • Will I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • Will there be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Options

You might not have to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Lots of Bluff City contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
