Ensure any contractor you consider is licensed to work in your area, bonded to protect you against incomplete work or non-payment of subcontractors, and insured to cover any accidents or damages that could occur during the project.

Your contractor will be your partner throughout the duration of your project, so it’s crucial that you communicate well and get along. Discuss your project’s goals, expectations, and concerns upfront to ensure you’re on the same page.

5. Detailed Contracts and Estimates

A professional contractor should provide a detailed contract and estimate that outlines the scope of work, materials to be used, timelines, payment schedules, and any other important details. Review these documents carefully before signing to avoid any surprises.
