How To Hire A Contractor

Posted by Cassie Venable on

While Plank + Mill's easy-to-use, peel & stick planks don’t require a professional, or even many tools to install, sometimes you want to let someone else do the work so you can just enjoy your weekend. We understand.

You’ve decided on the room, the project, the style, now how do you find someone you can trust with your vision? Hiring someone can seem a bit daunting but it’s a lot easier than you’d expect. How do you find someone you can trust? We’ve got you covered!

Do you even need a contractor? While a contractor is insured & bonded, unless there is electrical or plumbing work involved, you may not need a contractor at all. You may find a reputable handyman can handle this project with ease. With sites like Angie’s List & Houzz that specialize in matching clients & professionals, simply search for professionals in your zip code, read the reviews & find the right match for your job. You can have an appointment booked in only a few clicks.

 

Searching for a contractor

Anxious about booking a stranger online? Ask your friends or neighbors if they have anyone they’d suggest. Often you’ll find someone in your circle has a person they rely on for small projects here & there. This can help ensure you’re getting the quality of work you want from a person you can trust.

Discuss your expectations in terms of both time & budget. This will help prevent unexpected charges & misunderstandings. Be sure to get all quotes in writing so there is no confusion when the bill arrives.

You may consider hiring an actual contractor if your next home makeover project is bigger than an accent wall or installing a plank backsplash. Of course, the larger the project, the more opportunities for something to go awry & having a professional in your corner can be the difference in a project finished on time & a remake of “The Money Pit.”

Free programs like Floorplanner.com lets you design, save, and share your floor plan ideas, no designer required. You can then use this concept to discuss your ideas with the contractor. Establishing deadlines & milestones can prevent extensive confusion later during billing as well as completion dates. Remember, this is an estimate but you will have some idea of what to expect.

Whether you are redoing a master bath or expanding a master bedroom, you can rest easier knowing a capable contractor is on the job. Now, go forth and conquer the contracting world. Remember to take before & after pictures--they’re our favorite!
