Check Their Credentials

No matter how big or small the job is, you need to be able to trust your contractor completely. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for copies of any certifications and certificate of insurance – any contractor worth the money will be glad to oblige you.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what other customers have said about their services from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. They’re just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No one knows your home better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any questions or concerns you have about your project with your potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes?

Find Out About Installation Day

Depending on the size of your project, install can be grueling and long, or it could be a cinch. No matter what, it’s important to ask about the details for installation day. These are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

  • How many installers will be coming in and out of my house?

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

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

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You don’t always have to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Lots of Boise contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
