Check Their Credentials

No matter the scale of your 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 contractor worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also take the time to check their reputation. See 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 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 voice any questions or concerns you have about your project 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?

Get the Details on Installation Day

Depending on the scale of your project, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a cinch. No matter what, you should 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 Kingsport contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
