Contractors are often essential personnel on large-scale renovation projects. But how do you know you’re hiring the right people? Here are just four ways to sift through the rubble and find a gem.
1. Look for a License
While not every state requires its contractors to be licensed, contractors can still take the exams anyway to prove their knowledge and competency in the field. Ask for a licensing number before you sign any contracts or make any deals.
2. Verify Their Insurance
Good contractors have insurance. If they don’t, you could wind up liable for any accidents or injuries incurred during your remodeling project. Make sure you discuss insurance coverage during your initial consultation.
