Must-Ask Questions When Hiring a Clearwater Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is many things: Clearwater shutter installers, interior design professionals, and more. But basically, you could just call us Clearwater contractors.

There are tons of contractors in Clearwater, and it might be tricky to pick the right one. Whether you’re planning a kitchen renovation, new floors, or new window treatments – choosing the right team is important. These are some questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Clearwater contractor for your upcoming project.

Check Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of how big or small the job is, you need to be able to trust your contractor 100%. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for copies of their contracting license and insurance – any home service professional worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what past customers have said about their services from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t be afraid to voice any questions or concerns you have about your project with any potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new wood floor you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes?

Find Out About Install Day

Depending on the size of your project, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a cinch. No matter what, you should ask about the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

  • How many installers might be coming into my house?

  • Will I need to cover any furniture or make any other preparations?

  • Will there be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?
