Ask About Their Credentials

No matter the size of your next project, you need to be able to put your trust in your contractor 100%. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for proof of their contracting license and certificate of insurance – any home service professional worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what other customers have said about their services from some of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. Reviews are just one thing to consider when looking at your options.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your home better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about the job with any potential home service provider. Are you worried about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than wood blinds?

Get the Details on Install Day

Depending on the size of your project, installation day can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a cinch. For any size project, it’s important to get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole install take?

  • How many contractors might be coming in and out of my house?

  • Will I need to cover any furniture or anything else in the house?

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

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You don’t always have to wait and save for months to schedule your home improvement project. Many Oklahoma City contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
