Must-Ask Questions When Hiring a Charlotte Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is a lot of things: Charlotte shutter installers, interior design experts, and more. But when it comes down to it, you could just call us Charlotte contractors.

There’s no shortage of contractors in Charlotte, and it might be tricky to pick the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new floors, or new window treatments – working with the right team is important. These are a few questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Charlotte contractor for your upcoming project.

Check Their Credentials

Regardless of the scale of your project, you need to be able to trust your contractor with your home. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask for proof of any certifications and insurance – any home service provider worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what past customers have said about the contractor from more than one of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. Reviews are just one source to keep in mind when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No one knows your home better than you, so don’t hesitate to voice any questions or concerns you have about your project with your potential home service provider. Are you worried about how the new flooring you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than wood blinds?

Ask About Installation Day

Depending on the scale of your project, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a walk in the park. Either way, be sure to ask about the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole install take?

  • How many workers might be coming into my house?

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

  • How likely is there to be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Plans

You might not need to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Lots of Charlotte contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
