Tips for Choosing a Contractor

Are you ready to remodel your home but aren’t sure where to start or who to trust? If you’re about to undertake a home repair project, you’ll want to keep an eye out for red flags. Keep the following tips in mind as you search for a contractor.

The Bid

  • Contractors will try to bid competitively to win your business, but if the estimate they give you seems unrealistically low, look elsewhere.


  • Pass on a contractor who asks for full payment up front or requires you to pay in cash.


  • Don’t hire a contractor who won’t sign a contract.

License & Insurance

  • Stay away from unlicensed or uninsured contractors. You could be held liable for any problems that happen on your property.


  • If you have trouble finding information about a contractor or if he or she refuses to provide references, keep searching.

A good choice will help your project go smoothly, but a poor choice can be a huge headache. Check out Best Pick Reports for a list of reputable contractors in your area.
