Seven Tips for Hiring a Contractor

#5 Did the contractor respect you and your home?

This is when I begin to discuss how you feel about the contractor. It is really a very important question when you think about it. This is the dating phase of the project. If you are dating someone and you don't develop good rapport during dinner on the first date - do you believe you'd actually marry that person? Same thing with the estimating process of remodeling (the dating phase). You don't want to get married (sign a contract) if you don't have good rapport. Pay attention during this process.

If you feel as if you’re not being listened to because the contractor is in a hurry or doesn’t ask you any questions that particular contractor is probably not going to be a good choice.

If you feel you’re being heard and you feel good about the contractor, this could be the beginning of a “good fit” relationship and an awesome "marriage".
