Make sure your contractor is committed to your project. Communication is key make sure you can reach your contractor to stay informed during your project. A good contractor should return all calls on the same day or within 24 hours.

To protect your investment. The 2 biggest complaints in contracting are unfinished work and poor quality a good contractor will finish your project with quality results using best practices.

First use good judgement; is the price fair for the quality project that you want? Take time to meet with your contractor; ask questions and make sure he is listening and understands what you want. Make sure he is doing your project and not the project he wants to do. Don’t sacrifice quality, service and value to get a cheap price; it will cost more in the long run.

Not all contractors specialize in doing quality work.

Your contractor should be paid upon completion after everything is done according to the project plan and scope of work. A reasonable down payment is fair. Make sure you are happy with the project results, and if anything is left undone or needs attention it should be done prior to final payment.

This sometimes depends on the project; an ordinary project may require 10% – 30 % as an initial investment to order your project, special order materials may require a 50% initial investment to have products manufactured or custom fabricated for your project. Most good established contractors have financing options that make it easier to invest.

Does the budget serve the project? You are making a permanent change to your home and you want to make a good investment. Some contractors do cheap work and that’s what you get. Most good established contractors don’t do cheap work, and this is why. Homeowners are usually not happy with a cheap job. To ensure happiness a good contractor plans projects that enhance the; appearance, quality, comfort, value and efficiency of your home. Find a contractor who will help you make a good investment with long term value.
