Starting your remodeling project on the right foot means hiring the right person for the job. However, choosing the right expert contractor is harder than it sounds, therefore I’ve put together a few things you can do to vet your contractors. First off, make sure you look up the contractor’s license and verify it’s legitimacy. Most states require major remodeling work to be done by a licensed contractor. After getting their license number, you can verify it using a validation website provided by your state. A valid license means the contractor is credible and has the level of expertise needed to practice the profession.

Another thing you can do to vet your contractor is to have a quick chat with their references. Ask previous customers about their experience, if there were any mistakes, and if they are generally satisfied with their work. Many people find out about contractors through their past clients. If someone told you about a specific contractor, see if they’ll let you stop by and see the work for yourself. At the very least, they may have a few pictures they can show you of the work. If you are on the fence about a particular contractor, then this is a great way to narrow down your list.

Remember, if a contractor sounds too good to be true, then they probably are! Vetting your contractors is your best defense against having a bad remodeling experience. Don’t feel weird about asking either. If the contractor is a good one, they will be familiar with these doubts and will be able to deliver any information that you need before making a decision.
