What to Ask Your Contractor Before Hiring Them

Hiring a contractor can be a daunting task. You need to make sure that the person you hire is reliable and trustworthy, as they will be responsible for completing your project on time and within budget. To help ensure that you are making the right decision, it’s important to ask your potential contractor the right questions before signing any contracts.

1. Do you have liability insurance?

It’s important that your contractor carries liability insurance in case something goes wrong during the course of your project. This will protect both you and the contractor should any accidents or damage occur while they are working on-site.

2. Are you licensed and certified?

In some states, contractors must be licensed or certified in order to legally perform certain types of work. Make sure that your contractor is properly certified or licensed in order to avoid any legal issues down the line.

3. How long have you been in business?

It’s always a good idea to find out how long a company has been around before hiring them for a job. The longer they have been in business, the more likely it is that their workmanship is top-notch and professional.

4. What type of materials do you use?

Your contractor should be able to provide you with detailed information about the types of materials they use for their projects and explain why those materials are best suited for your particular job site and needs.

5. Can I see examples of your past work? It’s always a good idea to view examples of a contractor's past work before hiring them for a job so that you can get an idea of what kind of quality they produce. Ask if they can provide references from past clients who were satisfied with their services as well as pictures or videos of completed jobs they have done in the past.

6 What guarantees do you offer? A reputable contractor should be willing to provide guarantees on both their workmanship and materials used in order to ensure customer satisfaction with the end result of their project. Make sure that all guarantees are clearly stated in writing prior to signing any contracts so there are no misunderstandings later down the road.

Before signing on with any contractor, it’s important to ask these questions - and many others – so that you know exactly what services they will provide and what kind of results you can expect after completion of their project. Doing research beforehand will save time, money, and hassle later on down the road! Asking these questions can also help ensure that your contractor meets all necessary criteria required by law (liability insurance, licensing/certification) so that everything goes smoothly throughout the duration of your project!
