Ask About Their Credentials

No matter the size of your next project, you need to be able to trust your contractor completely. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask to see copies of their contracting license and certificate of insurance – any contractor worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what past customers have said about the contractor from more than one of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one thing to consider when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have about the job with any potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new wood floor you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than drapes?

Get the Details on Install Day

Depending on the size of your project, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a cinch. For any size project, it’s important to ask about the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • About how long will the installation take?

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

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

  • How likely is there to be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

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

Find Out Your Payment Options

You don’t always need to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Lots of Nashville contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
