Check Their Credentials

No matter the size of your next project, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor completely. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for proof of their contracting license and insurance – any home service provider 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 some of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one part of the puzzle that you can research when looking at your options.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any concerns you have about the job with any potential contractor. Are you concerned 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?

Ask About Install Day

Depending on how big 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 into 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?

  • How noisy will the installation be?

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

Find Out Your Payment Options

You might not have to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Most Southern California contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
