Title: Home Remodeling : 5 Step for Finding Right Contractor in California


1
Home Remodeling 6 Step for Finding Right
Contractor in California
  • HCSE Structural Engineering Inc Provide 6 Step
    for Finding best Contractor in California. When
    choosing a contractor to head up your remodel,
    these simple steps can mean the difference
    between complete confidence and sleepless nights.

2
Ask for Referrals
  • Word of mouth-hands down, is the best way to find
    a qualified professional to tackle the job. Ask
    relatives, friends and neighbors whom they've had
    good experiences with. And ask what made it a
    positive experience, how the contractor handled
    problems and whether he or she would use the same
    contractor again.

3
Look at Credentials
  • With recommendations in hand, do some preliminary
    research, whether it's with a phone call or a
    visit to the contractor's website. Find out
    whether he or she holds all the required licenses
    from state and local municipalities, along with
    designations from any professional associations
    such as the National Kitchen Bath Association,
    the National Association of the Remodeling
    Industry and the National Association of
    Homebuilders. Look for contractors who have
    invested in course work and passed rigorous tests
    to earn particular certifications. Be aware,
    however, that not all certifications are created
    equal. Do some homework and find out the
    requirements.

4
Interview Candidates
  • Armed with a list, make some calls to get a sense
    for how comfortable you'll be with them working
    in and around your home.
  • How long have you been in business?
  • Who will be assigned as project supervisor for
    the job and will workers be employees or
    subcontractors?
  • Does your company carry workers' compensation and
    liability insurance?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed in
    the past year?
  • May I have a list of references from those
    projects and a list of business referrals or
    suppliers?
  • Do you belong to any professional associations?

5
Check References
  • Ask to see some of the contractors' projects. If
    you approve of them, request references and call
    contractors' former customers to check up on
    them. Ask how the contractors did at executing
    the projects. Were they on time and on budget?
    Were the customers pleased with the outcome? Was
    there anything that could have been done
    differently?
  • Remember that when you're hiring a remodeler, you
    are buying a service and not a product. Quality
    of service will determine the quality of the
    finished project. Here are some things you'll
    want to explore and questions you'll want to ask
    when interviewing a remodeler.

6
Business Experience and Management
  • Maintain a permanent mailing address, e-mail
    address, personal phone number, fax number, cell
    phone and voicemail?
  • Carry insurance that protects you from liability?
    Ask for a copy of the remodeler's insurance
    certificates to be sure. Also, ask the remodeler
    how much the project will add to the home's value
    and attain additional insurance from your
    provider.

7
  • Have an established presence in the community?
    How long has the company been in business under
    this name? Does the remodeler maintain solid
    relationships with contractors such as plumbers
    and electricians and work with them as a team?
  • Possess a trustworthy reputation among customers
    and peers? Is there a track record of success?
  • Has the remodeler earned any professional
    designations, such as Certified Graduate
    Remodeler (CGR), Certified Bath Designer (CBD),
    etc.? How long has the remodeler been a member or
    any trade organizations?

8
Get It in Writing
  • After selecting a contractor, take a look at the
    documents he or she has prepared. Do they look
    professional? Scrutinize the contract. Does it
    seem fair and balanced? And make sure the legal
    agreement includes the following

9
  • a bid price and payment schedule
  • specifics about the scope of work
  • the site plan
  • a sequential schedule of primary construction
    tasks
  • a change-order clause
  • a written procedural list for close-out
  • an express limited warranty
  • a clause about dispute resolution
  • a waiver of lien, which would prevent
    subcontractors and suppliers from putting a lien
    on a house should their invoices go unpaid by the
    contractor
