Questions to Ask a Contractor Before Hiring One Home improvement professionals can be a homeowners best friend. Whether you need help keeping your furnace running, upgrading your bathroom space to keep up with the Jones', or new appliances to reduce your home's carbon footprint and monthly operating costs, the right home improvement professional is out there, waiting for you to contact them. Whether you need a kitchen remodeled, siding replaced, or upgrade of your insulation, you will be giving a near stranger access to your home. As such, you need to know who you are hiring and what experience and guarantees the particular home improvement specialist has to offer. How a home improvement professional answers some basic questions will give you a sense of whether or not you can

comfortably work with that individual. Some important questions to ask are: - Have you completed projects like mine recently? - Can you provide a list of references? - Are you licensed and registered with the state? - Are you insured and covered by workman's compensation? - Will you be using sub-contractors on this project? If so, are your subcontractors licensed to work in these area (such as plumbing, roofing, etc.)? - Do you give written warranties? - Will my project require a permit? - Do you belong to any professional associations? Hiring a Contractor Home improvements can enhance your home’s value and comfort, but choosing the wrong contractor can make the process frustrating and expensive. The wrong contractor can leave you with shoddy work and a poor outcome that you’ll need to correct. A few precautions can help you locate a reputable contractor and minimize these kinds of problems. • Solicit bids from at least 3 contractors. • Be wary of “too good to be true” proposals. • Research the contractor for previous complaints. • Insist on a written contract that


outlines your project and includes starting and completion dates. • Review all documents before you sign them, including contracts, warranties, and plans. • Make sure there are no blank spaces on anything you sign. • Insist upon a written warranty on all materials and work. • Secure building permits (if necessary) before starting the project and identify the contractor on the application. • Secure a contractor’s affidavit that all subcontractors and material suppliers have been paid before making final payment. • Avoid contractors who use aggressive, high-pressure tactics to scare you into working with them. Decline unsolicited pitches from contractors who are “just in the neighborhood,” use overly-friendly sales pitches, or quote you a price too good to be true. • Comparison shop. Obtain bids from three contractors and ask for three references from each. Ask neighbors, friends, or relatives who have recently completed a home improvement project for their recommendations. • The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR), which licenses contractors, provides information about specific contractors, including their addresses, length of time licensed, and whether they’ve been the subject of DPOR disciplinary action for violation of DPOR rules. DPOR does not investigate unethical business

practices. Visit the DPOR website at www.dpor.virginia.gov or call the DPOR at 804-367-8500. • Don’t rely on verbal agreements. Ask the contractor you’ve selected to prepare a written contract that includes, at a minimum, the contractor’s name, street address (not a P.O. box number), license number, a description of the work to be performed (including cleanup) and timetable, the materials to be used, subcontractor names, if any, starting and completion dates, warranty provisions, and a payment schedule based on completion of specific stages of the job. Paying a Contractor • Con artists and fly-by-night operators typically insist on a large down payment or that you pay in cash before work is done. Once they have the money, they may never return. Your down payment should be as little as you can negotiate with the contractor, but typically no more than 25-30 percent of the total cost. Pay by credit card, not cash. • Don’t allow payments to get ahead of the work. • Withhold the final payment until the entire project is finished and inspected and you receive a contractor’s affidavit affirming that all subcontractors and suppliers have been paid. You don’t want to have a mechanic’s lien placed against your property if you’ve paid the contractor, but he hasn’t paid the subcontractors and suppliers. Most of the information above was compiled from the Virginia Dept. of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR)
