Ask About Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you need to be able to trust your contractor with your home. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for copies of their contracting license and certificate of insurance – any home service professional worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also check out their reputation. See what past customers have said about their services from some of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one source to keep in mind when planning your project.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

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

Get the Details on Installation Day

Depending on the scale of your project, install can be grueling and long, or it could be a walk in the park. No matter what, you should ask about the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • Roughly how long will the installation take?

  • How many contractors might be coming into 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?

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Options

You might not need to wait and save for months to schedule your home improvement project. Most Miami contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
