6 Ways to Select a Professional Contractor:

6 Ways to Select a Professional Contractor:

  1. Employ an established contractor. Remember, a warranty is only as good as the company that issues it. Be sure there is a  properly licensed company in existence in the future to make good on its promises.
  2. Look for a member of NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry). It is important that a construction company recognizes its responsibility to the public.
  3. Check the remodeling contractor with the Office of Consumer Affairs. Ask the contractor if they are listed in the Dunn & Bradstreet Information Service (312-832-0500, 10a–2:30p, Mon–Fri). Call to ask if there are any complaints registered against the contractor.
  4. When soliciting bids for your project, do not blindly accept the lowest. Be sure the price includes quality materials and service. A shoddy job can devalue your property.
  5. Ask for homeowner references and follow-up on them.
  6. Ask your professional contractor to provide proof of insurance. This should cover workers' compensation, property damage and personal liability.

4 Ways to Plan:

  1. Think your project through from start to finish. Does the home improvement meet your needs and match your lifestyle?
  2. Carefully plan your home improvements. You want your home to continue to increase in value, for less than the cost of a new house.
  3. Look over your property carefully. Make a list of the repairs that are needed and the improvements you desire for the future.
  4. Carefully consider what you can afford to spend. Determine what you have to borrow and what monthly payment will help you stay within your budget. Keep in mind that the improvements you envision will increase your home's value.
