Ask About Their Credentials

Regardless of the scale of your project, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor completely. You can build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask to see copies of any certifications and insurance – any home service professional worth the money will be glad to oblige you.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what past customers have said about their services from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one part of the puzzle that you can research when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your house better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about the job with your potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new flooring you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better choice than Roman shades?

Find Out About Install Day

Depending on the size of your project, install can be grueling and long, or it could be a cinch. Either way, be sure to get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the installation take?

  • How many installers will be coming into my house?

  • Will I need to cover any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • How likely is there to be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Options

You don’t always have to wait and save for months to schedule your home improvement project. Many Sacramento contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
