1. Get references and advice
Reach out to neighbors or friends who have recently had work done on their homes. Ask them about their experience with the contractor they hired and ask to see the work yourself. You can also crowdsource experiences from people online to find leads. Once you have a list of names on paper, you can start your own research to find the best contractor for you.
2. Look them up online
After you have your list of references, look them up online. Take a look at their reviews and ratings, and if they have a website, look through it to find photographs from previous jobs. This is a good way to narrow the list down further. You want a contractor who is transparent about their work so a website populated with past work is a very good sign. Once you feel assured that the contractor consistently delivers good work, widen your research parameters to confirm they have the right qualifications for the job.
3. Check for licensing
Many states require contractors to be licensed or pass certain exams to legally carry out construction work. Call the contractors you have shortlisted and ask them about their licensing and insurance. Insurance is crucial because it covers the contractor’s crew and protects you from any liability in case of accidents. You can also search online to check if they are legally permitted to take up construction jobs in your area. Look them up on the Better Business Bureau website.
4. Ask about warranty
Whether it’s wood window replacement or fiberglass window replacement, a good contractor with faith in their work will always offer a warranty. While the duration of the warranty may vary based on the area you live in, the weather in your locality, and the material you choose, a good contractor will always offer a warranty period on their work.
5.Get a quotation and timeline
If your contractor has the experience they claim, they should be able to give you an estimate of the cost and how long the entire project would take. Shop around for a few quotes because you never want to settle for the first one you get. Once you are comfortable with the price, have your contractor put a deadline on the work. This will ensure the work doesn’t drag on and the job is done within the previously agreed upon time
