Questions To Ask When Working With a Raleigh Contractor

May 29, 2018

Here at Sunburst we’re a lot of things: Raleigh shutter installers, interior fashion experts, and more. But in the end, you could just call us Raleigh contractors.

There’s no shortage of contractors in Raleigh, and it might be tricky to pick the best one for you. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new flooring, or new window treatments – doing business with the right team is important. Below are some questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Raleigh contractor for your upcoming project.

Ask About Their Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor with your home. Build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask to see copies of their contracting license and certificate of insurance – any home service professional worth the money will be glad to oblige you.

Also take the time to check their reputation. See what past customers have said about the contractor 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 implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one thing to consider when planning your project.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your house better than you, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have about your project with any potential contractor. 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 idea than drapes?

Ask About Installation Day

Depending on what your project is, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a walk in the park. For any size project, be sure to get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

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

  • Do I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • Will there be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • What will the noise levels be like during the installation?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You might not need to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Many Raleigh contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
