TIPS ON HIRING THE RIGHT CONTRACTOR FOR YOU

It's more than just a hire, it's trust

1. LICENSED The number one RULE above all rules is making sure the hired company is an actual licensed company. Key word licensed, you would be surprised how many people miss this important step. Think of it like getting surgery and not making sure they first board certified. You can verify a business in California, by going through the Contractors State License Board (CSLB). Here's how: Go to the CSLB License Check Page (https://www.cslb.ca.gov/onlineservices/checklicenseII/checklicense.aspx) Enter the contractor's license number or their name and other identifying information.

2. Get Multiple Estimates. Talk to several contractors and get written estimates from at least three.

Like the cost estimate, they will only be able to give you a general or expected timeline without seeing the site first. However, keep an eye out for those that propose to get jobs done faster than they typically take. Jobs have time frames for a reason, and those that cut corners for time can be prone to shirking on quality. 3. Take Your Time Making a Sound Decision, that Fits Around Your Timeline.

4. Making sure your vision aligns with their working capabilities


When talking to the local contractor, thoroughly explain the kind of job you need them to do. Afterward, ask if they have done specific projects like this one before, and if so, what their overall experience is with that kind of work. If you are unsure about their answer, you can always ask about specific examples of their related works and even ask for photos of the work (most contractors and subcontractors take before and after photos.)
