Check Their Credentials

No matter how big or small the job is, you need to be able to trust 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 happy to do so.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what past customers have said about the contractor from some of these 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 thing to consider when looking at your options.

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 your project with your potential contractor. Are you concerned about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes?

Get the Details on Install Day

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

  • About how long will the whole project take?

  • How many contractors might be coming into my house?

  • Will I need to cover any furniture or make any other preparations?

  • Will there be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

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

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Options

You don’t always have to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Lots of Salt Lake City contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
