Questions To Ask Before Hiring A Contractor

Everyone likes to be prepared. Whether it’s cramming for the big final in algebra or doing your research for an interview for the perfect job, being prepared has never done any harm. The same can be said when it comes to renovating your home or starting construction on a new one. 

There are a lot of moving variables when it comes to constructing or renovating a new home. From the simple choices in color to the more complex problems such as flooring material or tile selection, being prepared has never hurt. Before hiring a contractor, here are some important questions to ask. 

What Is The Timeline? 

A strict timeline is one of the most essential components of any construction process. It dictates what happens and when it happens. It also happens to dictate how much the process costs overall. Asking your contractor about similar projects and their timelines or if they are working on other projects is an excellent way of determining the timeframe for your project. Setting a distinct timeline for your construction process will save you a lot of hassle and money in the long run. 

What Is The Payment Schedule? 

Biltfor Construction understands how stressful financing a project can be. This is why we offer a variety of financing plans to help out with all of your construction needs. Asking us about payment schedules is a great way of getting on the same page with your contractor. Before making any initial first steps, it’s important to understand what you are paying for and how much you are paying for. It’s also important to ask if there could be any additional charges added on later in the process. 

How Will You Clean Up At The End Of The Day? 

Any quality contractor will make sure that they clean up all of their construction materials at the end of each day. Whether your construction lasts only a few days or a few months, it’s important to keep up appearances while your renovations are complete. Having a better understanding of how your contractors will clean up after the end of each day will give you a better understanding of how to prepare for construction. 

What Is Your Working Day Like? 

There are a lot of moving variables when it comes to the construction process. And every contractor is different in the process. This is why it is so important to understand your contractor’s day-to-day process. Questions such as “How much noise should I expect?” or “Should I remove any objects that could be in your way?” are great ways of understanding your contractor’s work life and how construction will be conducted. These questions will help you understand how long construction will take and what it will entail.
