At some point in everyone’s lives a time comes when they require the services of a contractor. Once you have decided that your require a contractor the next important step is ensuring you hire the right contractor. The right contractor for you may not be the same as ones which will be right for someone else. It is important to take a look at your expectations when choosing what contractor is right for you.
The saying “a jack of all trades, but a master of none” couldn’t be more truthful. When selecting a contractor it is important to find someone who is proficient in the areas that you require. While it can be more convenient to hire a single person who says they are able to do all aspects of your project, this can often lead to problems as this contractor isn’t as proficient in handling the minute details of the project, since they might not be used to this type of work since they aren’t doing it on a daily basis.
Basic Rules for Selecting a Contractor
Ask for several quotes from Contractors - three should give you a good idea of what the value of your project is worth.
Always compare apples with apples. THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST STEPS CUSTOMERS MISS. Make sure that the contractors quote on the same basis - including the materials being used, the scope of the project, and the way it will be completed.
Ask for references and speak with these references.
Check out jobs the have previously been completed or jobs that are currently being worked on. Watch closely for the care the installers take in applying the materials.
A good contractor will not cut corners to lower the price. Remember, you are looking for the best value, not the best price.
Although no contractor can guarantee that absolutely no damage to your property will occur, the contractor should include in his quotation the protection of your house and surrounding yard during installation and then the clean-up after the job is done.
Once your selection has been made, be sure the job is done to your specifications and to your satisfaction.
Be home when the job is being done, it is always better if you are on site to see the progress as it happens. It is also good if any questions arise, you are available to make an on the spot decision.
If any possible additional work may be required, this should be discussed prior to the job starting. This is not always possible as somethings come as a compete surprise
You are not expected to be an expert, but it helps to know the basics of the project your are undertaking. Take your time and do your research, know the right questions to ask and don’t be afraid to ask something you aren’t sure about
Most importantly make sure that you feel comfortable hiring your contractor . You need to feel comfortable with the work during the installation, and also be confident in the workmanship for years to come.
