Questions To Ask When Hiring a Atlanta Contractor

May 29, 2018

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 tricky to pick the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new floors, or new window treatments – picking 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 size of your next 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 will be happy to do so.

Also check out their reputation. See what past customers have said about the contractor from multiple 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. 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?

Find Out About Installation Day

Depending on how big your project is, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a snap. Either way, it’s important to get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • Roughly how long will the whole project take?

  • How many people 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?

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

  • 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 offer payment options or financing assistance.
