Questions to Ask before Selecting a Home Improvement Contractor

It is always best to do a bit of research before hiring a contractor or home improvement company to do work on your home. While it may be tempting to go with the lowest bidder, if the company has a bad reputation or does shoddy work, you may end up spending a lot more money trying to undo the damage they might cause. This is why it is important to do your homework and find an ideal contractor before signing a contract.

The editors at PatioEnclosures offer an article with 20 important questions you should ask the home contractors you are considering for the job. They also explain what answers you want to hear and why.  We feel that this is a great guideline to help you understand what you are looking for in a contractor so that you do not end up making a choice you will later regret.

Some questions that appear on their list include:

  1. How long have you been working in the industry?  Ideally, you want to hire someone who has been around long enough to be able to provide you with a long list of references. Baltic Home Improvements has been operating in the southwestern Chicago area for more than ten years and has a long and reputable track record for quality service.
  2. Are you licensed?  This is particularly important if you live in a state in which a license is required, such as Illinois. BHI is fully licensed and insured home improvement firm.
  3. Do you offer a guarantee on your work, and, if so, what is the guarantee?You want to hire a firm that does offer a guarantee for a specific amount to time, such as six month or a year. At BHI, we stand by our work with our 100% Baltic Guarantee.
