Ask About Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you need to be able to put your trust in your contractor completely. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask to see proof of their contracting license and certificate of insurance – any contractor worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also take the time to check their reputation. 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

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one thing to consider when planning your project.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

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

Get the Details on Installation Day

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

  • About how long will the full job take?

  • How many workers 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?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

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

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You don’t always need to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Lots of Minneapolis contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
