Check Their Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you need to be able to put your trust in your contractor with your home. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask to see proof of any certifications and certificate of insurance – any contractor worth the money will be glad to oblige you.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what other customers have said about the contractor from more than one of these 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 thing to consider when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your home better than you, so don’t be afraid to voice any questions or concerns you have about the job with any potential contractor. Are you concerned about how the new flooring you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better choice than wood blinds?

Get the Details on Install Day

Depending on the scale of your project, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a walk in the park. For any size project, you should get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole install take?

  • How many installers might be coming into my house?

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

  • How likely is there to 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?

Ask About Your Payment Options

You don’t always need to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Lots of Tampa contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
