Tips to help you hire the right person when renovating or doing almost any work in your home
Where you you begin once you decide to renovate or remodel your home? From my experience doing your due diligence in choosing the right person to come into your home and do the work will make you feel more comfortable as you go through each step of your renovation process.
If you are thinking of doing any major renovations such as bathroom or kitchen or just minor repairs here are some questions and suggestions to get you started:
•1. Get two or three written quotes for scope of work you want to have done
•2. Is the person doing the quote the person doing the work if not, who is doing it
•3. How long do they estimate the job will take, request a start / finish date of work being done
•4. Ask for two references from past clients - name - phone number•5.
•5. Do they have a business license - you may ask to see license if this makes you feel more comfortable
•6. Are they Insured
•7. What is there hourly rate if working by the hour
•8. Request receipt for deposits given with name, address & phone number on receipt
A home is usually your private dwelling place, so I would think it is very important that you feel comfortable with the people who come and work in your home and that you feel safe.
