Check Their Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you need to be able to trust your contractor 100%. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for copies of any certifications and certificate of insurance – any contractor worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. See what past customers have said about the contractor from multiple 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 source to keep in mind when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No one knows your home better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any questions or concerns you have about your project with your potential home service provider. Are you concerned about how the new tile you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better idea than wood blinds?

Ask About Install Day

Depending on what your project is, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a snap. For any size project, you should get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the whole project take?

  • How many installers might be coming in and out of my house?

  • Will I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • How likely is there to be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You might not need to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Many Fort Lauderdale contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
