3 Essential Questions to Ask a Home Remodeling Contractor, Rochester, New York

Remodeling your home or adding new room additions is an exciting project. Before you can get started, however, you must go through the process of hiring a remodeling contractor. With so many professionals available for work, it can be difficult to know which one to choose.  

Below are a few questions you should ask candidates to find the best fit for you: 

  • remodeling contractor“May I See Your License?”: In the state of New York, contractors must have a building permit to work on construction sites. Thus, it is imperative that you ask a potential workman for their licensure. Likewise, inquire about any accreditation or certifications they have acquired. The more training a remodeling contractor has, the more fine-tuned their skills will be.

  • “Can You Give Me an Estimate?”: Before signing on the dotted line, always get an estimate for the price and project timeline. Knowing what you can expect to pay will help you avoid surprises. Most professionals offer free estimates, so you shouldn’t run into any problems in this department. 

  • “Do You Have Any Letters of Recommendation?”: It is crucial to look at reviews of a remodeling contractor. Social media sites and word of mouth are excellent resources. Ask your friends and family who they trust. Once interviewing a potential contractor, ask them if they have any letters of recommendation. If they are unreliable, they won't be able to provide any.
