Things To Ask Your Home Renovation Contractor

Things To Ask Your Home Renovation Contractor

When you choose a remodeling or renovation contractor it is a vital decision because the entire design and safety of the house is dependent on the quality of work. The team is going to be at your home and you will be paying them a lot to get the work completed. So, it is best to conduct detailed research so that you can pick the right contractor for the job.

Let us go through 5 questions that you should ask before you hire a renovation contractor.

  • Can I visit projects that you have done in the past?

Any renovation contractor who has done work before will have many examples of their past work. You can ask for the addresses of the location or house where the contractor has done work. So that you can witness the quality of work with your own eyes. If you are getting the outdoors done you can visit the location but, if you are getting the interiors of the house done you can ask for pictures/images.

You can ask for references from the contractor. If you call these people you can ask the former clients what they liked about the contractor’s work and if they are satisfied about his work.

  • What is the cost estimate and the time frame to finish the project?

You have to look at the macro-view of the project when you choose the contractor. They don’t need to give a day to day schedule of the project or the execution of the project but you need to have an idea as to how long the project will take to complete.

You also need to know the budget in detail; calculation of each penny that is put into the contract. A professional contractor will have a complete idea of the expenses and the complete cost of the project.

The more details he gives you in the documents, the better it is so that you can discuss with him about where the expenses can be slashed down. An itemized estimate will help to give a thorough picture of the money that will go towards renovation. If you have any questions over any item and the money spent over it you can ask for specifications.

  • Can we make changes to the project? What would be the process for that?

Things would not always go according to the remodeling project or the plan. The construction team will face issues and unforeseen structural challenges. In such a situation the problem needs to be addressed immediately. Construction products or materials can go out of stock or deliveries will not be made. When such issues are faced changes need to be made in the construction, budget and schedule.

So, you should know about the changes made and document it accordingly with the scope of work and prices mentioned in it. This document has to be signed by the contractor and you.

  • Details of the team that will be visiting the home everyday?

The main contractor will not be the person who will be visiting your home every day. His team will be overseeing the work at your home. A carpenter, plumber and project manager will be visiting your home. You should be given a point of contact – someone who can answer your queries regarding the work. You have to know how to get in touch with the team whenever needed.

  • Are you licensed?

The contractor has to have a license and you have a right to ask for it. If the contractor refuses to show it then he doesn’t have it and is not a true professional. So, you should not go ahead with project with him. These documents will protect you because it is a proof that his work has a decent foundation of knowledge and skills.
