3 Important Questions to Ask Your Remodeling Contractor

Remodeling your home is a significant investment, which is why it’s important to evaluate your potential contractors. By knowing what to expect from them, you can be sure that your project is in good hands. ABM Services and Renovations, the new construction specialist, shares some of the important questions you need to ask before proceeding with your project:

Remodeling Contractor

Are You Licensed and Insured?

As a homeowner, you’ll want to verify if your contractor has obtained the necessary licenses specific to their field of expertise. This will assure you that they comply with state and industry standards to perform the requested services. In addition, you must ensure that they carry both workers’ compensation and liability insurance to protect you from liabilities in case of a workplace mishap.

What Steps Will You Take to Protect My Property?

Whether they’re repairing your gutters or replacing your windows, your contractor should observe safety measures to protect your property. That said, make sure to ask what they’ll do. Find out if they’ll use tarps to cover your furniture near the work area, if their crew will wear shoe coverings to minimize the mess as they enter your home, and if they’ll recommend moving certain items to other areas of your home.

How Long Have You Been in This Business?

Companies with many years of experience already have established processes to ensure that their work is on track and of the best quality. More importantly, this reflects their business stability. To further confirm their quality of service, you can ask them for referrals and photos of their previous work. This gives you an idea of their experience if you choose to work with them.
