We'll be one of the first to admit that hiring a contractor can be a scary process, especially if you've never done it before. After all, you're looking to bring someone into your home, with whom you're likely spending a significant amount of money, but can they be trusted to do the work, and do it well?
Typically those looking to hire a contractor for the first time do one of three things. 1. Go through the phonebook and make calls. 2. Go online and search for websites and reviews. 3. Ask a friend for a referral. These approaches are not bad or wrong, but certainly shouldn't be done as the only homework.
A first impression is easy to make and so sometimes people end up making their decision based on which contractor answered their phone, seemed nice, etc. While these are great qualities you should expect from your contractor, we have a few tips that can help you make a better decision, leading to a better finished project.
