Important Qualities of a Good Contractor
Talk to friends, family, and neighbors. What is their level of satisfaction? Take a look at the work their contractor has done. Ask for several references, one being the type of project you are considering. You should look for a contractor who has been in business for a while, is registered in Pennsylvania, has insurance (liability; worker’s comp), and has a good reputation.
Depending on the size of the project you’re going to be spending a lot of time with this contractor. Think about whether you feel comfortable with their personality, background, methods, and communication skills.
At the time of the estimate, during contract signing and throughout the project, does the contractor answer your questions and
explain things in a way you can understand?
Choose someone who is on time, able to keep the project on schedule, and completes the work as described.
Detail about the project should be included in the contract - from a work timetable, (start and finish dates), to description of the work, to materials that will be used (right down to the brand or make of the fixtures), to the payment schedule. It is important that the contractor and customer are on the same page in order to reach the desired end result.
This is sometimes overlooked. Does the contractor contain the working area, as well as protect flooring and other contents?
