Must-Ask Questions When Hiring a Atlanta Contractor05/29/2018Dan Taylor Our team here at Sunburst is a lot of things: Atlanta shutter installers, interior fashion experts, and more. But in the end, you could just call us Atlanta contractors. There are tons of contractors in Atlanta, and it might be hard to pick the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new floors, or new window treatments – doing business with the right team is crucial. Here are some questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Atlanta contractor for your next project. Check Your Contractor’s Credentials No matter the scale of your project, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor with your home. You can build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for copies of any certifications and insurance – any contractor worth the money won’t hesitate to show them. Also check out their reputation. See what past customers have said about the contractor from some of these sources: HomeAdvisor Angie’s List Houzz Facebook Google Business Better Business Bureau Yelp Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options. Ask Questions Specific To Your Home No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any concerns you have about your project with your potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new flooring you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes? Don’t hesitate to speak up and ask the questions that matter to you! Find Out About Install Day Depending on how big your project is, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a snap. No matter what, it’s important to get the details for installation day. These are a few to get you started. Roughly how long will the installation take? How many contractors might be coming into my house? Do I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house? How likely is there to be any dust or fumes during or after the installation? How noisy will the installation be? Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation? Find Out Your Payment Plans You might not need to wait and save for months to schedule your home improvement project. Most Atlanta contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments. Sunburst Shutters Atlanta currently offers special financing on all your window treatment projects.
