What Questions
Should I Ask Potential Contractors? 

 

Often heard questions are “When can you start? When will it be finished? How much will it cost?”  Unfortunately, these types of questions will not tell you much about a particular contractor.  Homeowners should also focus on trust and quality. 

 

Here are questions NARI members recommend you ask before signing a remodeling contract: 

 

  • How long have you been in business? 

  • Have you completed many projectslike mine? 

  • May I have a list of references? 

  • What is your approach to a projectsuch as this? 

  • What is your guarantee?

  • Does your company carry WorkersCompensation and General Liabilityinsurance?    

  • What percentage of your business isrepeat or referral business? 

  • Are you a member of a national tradeassociation? 

 

Listen to the answers and pay attention to your instincts.  Your remodeler will be a part of your daily life. It makes sense that you should take some time to carefully select this person and make sure that it is someone to whom you can ask questions. 

 

Remodeling can be a fun experience. You get to create your dream room or home and learn a little about design and building along the way. All you need to do is ask questions. According to NARI members, remodelers don’t get asked enough questions.
