References are an important resource when choosing a contractor to do work on your home. It is important that any contractors on your short-list are able to provide you with a list of previous customers so that you can ask them important questions before signing on to any large-dollar project.

But do you know what you should ask when you contact them? This is the focus of an article that appeared on Angie’s List by Joshua Palmer entitled 9 questions to ask a contractor’s references

The nine questions listed are:

  1. What kind of work did the contractor do for you?
  2. Did you have a clear idea of what the contractor was going to do?
  3. Did you check the contractor’s credentials?
  4. Did they show up on time?
  5. What was working with the contractor’s crew or subcontractors like?
  6. Was the communication with the contractor adequate?
  7. Did your job come in according to budget?
  8. Did you get the results you expected?
  9. Would you hire this contractor again?

Learn more about each of these questions, including why they are important and what you want to hear, by reading the full article here.
