Ask About Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of the scale of your project, you need to be able to trust your contractor 100%. You can build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for proof of any certifications and insurance – any home service provider worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what other 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

Be careful not to make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. Reviews are just one thing to consider when planning your project.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about the job with any potential home service provider. Are you worried about how the new flooring you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better idea than drapes?

Find Out About Install Day

Depending on how big your project is, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a snap. For any size project, it’s important to get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole install take?

  • How many installers might be coming into my house?

  • Will I need to move any furniture or make any other preparations?

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

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Options

You might not have to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Many San Antonio contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
