As you begin your search for the right contractor, it is important that you know how to choose the right one. When making your final decision it is in your best interest to review the tips below.

Insurance- Make sure that your home owners insurance is adequate. Some policies may need to be altered for home improvements.

Contractor’s Insurance- Always make sure that the contractor you choose has Worker’s Compensation and Liability Insurance. A homeowner may be held responsible for accidents that occur on site if the contractor does not have enough insurance.

Experience- Make sure that your contractor is experienced in the job you are looking to have done. An experienced contractor does not necessarily mean he is experience in replacement windows.

References- An good contractor should have references available. You may also want to consider checking with the Better Business Bureau or your local Contractors Associations.

Accurate Pricing- An estimate is different from a contract. Be sure you know in detail the exact pricing of the job before work begins so later down the road you will not be surprised by the cost of the job.

No Such Thing as a Silly Question- Fire away at will any questions you may have for your contractor. It is better to find out now than later.

Communication- Make sure that your contractor understands exactly what you want done.

Homeowner’s Rights- All contractors, according to the Federal Law must let you know in writing that you may notify them in writing if you are going to cancel the job within 3 business days of the contract date.

Payments and Financing- Your contractor may provide you with payment and financial options. You also have the option to seek other plans that may be more suitable for you.

Written Contract- All contractors should provide you with a contract in writing which details all the work you expect them to perform. This should include any work that you expect after the job is completed such as trash removal and area clean up.
