9 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring A Contractor
1: Do you specialize in ________ (fill in the blank with the type of remodel) ?
There is a big difference between hiring a handyman (someone that does small repairs) vs. a contractor that is experienced with bathroom, kitchen, siding, drywall, flooring or roofing repairs or remodels. A specialty contractor has mastered their craft and knows how to handle and fix unforeseen issues. They work fast while making the job look easy.
2. What are the City of Houston requirements for the remodeling process?
Your remodel may required permits from the City of Houston based on the work needed to renovate your home.
3. What is the remodeling process for my project?
An experienced contractor should be able to provide specific information on how the process will go based on previous customer’s projects. It’s not realistic to expect a detailed time schedule in the initial meeting. Pay close attention to their answers. Are they giving vague answers, avoiding the question or just saying “Yes” I can do the work without explaining how?
4. Do you work with insurance companies?
Working with insurance companies will delay the work progress, add time to project because of the required inspection intervals and scheduling constraints posed by the insurance company. And if a mortgage company requires inspections, expect additional delays.
5. Will your contractor handle scheduling and inspections?
Is your contractor experienced with scheduling inspections and meeting city inspectors at the project for you? Or will this be your responsibility? After the project has started, the last thing you want to discover is scheduling or meeting city inspectors is your responsibility. As simple as this task seems, it is a big time suck because it chews up a big portion of your day. Many contractor’s don’t like to be bothered with this task!
This goes without saying. Getting references from past customer’s from a year ago can be better than a job they just finished. Why? A customer from a year ago will be able to tell you if they had any issues, how the performed work looks to date. You can rest assured if there were any issues after the project was completed, they were taken care of, otherwise they wouldn’t be a reference.
On a large renovation project a few tweaks or touch ups are common once the homeowner has moved back into the space.
7. How long is the warranty and what does it cover?
Make sure you have a clear understanding of what labor the warranty covers. For example, the project included plumbing, 3 months later, you noticed a small leak. Does the warranty include the contractor coming back to fix the leak or will you be charged for the service call?
8. Are you insured?
You be amazed how many homeowners ask and the contractor that question, they say “Yes” and that’s the end of it. Whatever contractor you hire for your remodeling project, always get a copy of their insurance.
9. Specialty Contractor or General Contractor?
This is a question only you can answer honestly and make the best decision that’s right for you. Many homeowners try to save money by hiring the specialty trades needed for their project themselves.
If you have the time to meet with 2-3 contractor’s per trade, don’t mind researching the City of Houston permit requirements, coordinating multiple trades, creating a schedule for your project, going the individual specialty contractor route, might be a good fit for you.
If your main concern is getting your house renovated and back to a normal daily routine as quickly as possible, a General Contractor is the way to go.
Having 1 person be your point of contact to answer any questions or concerns that arise throughout the process, helps eliminate a lot of frustrations and miscommunication that occurs with multiple trades.
Make sure to chose a General Contractor that will:
- Personally Inspect Your Project Daily
- Pull Permits, Handle Inspections
- Coordinate and Schedules Specialty Trades
- Has A Track Record for Completing Projects On Time
Common sense goes a long way when selecting a contractor for your remodeling or repair project. Trust your instinct! Don’t select a contractor based on the lowest bid. The key to a good remodeling experience and finding the reputable professional contractor is communication.
Remember if a contractor is not very responsive and it always takes a couple days for them to return your call or reply to a message, what do you think it will be like after they have your money!
