For remodeling and other large-scale home projects, hiring a general contractor can make the difference between a chaotic and stressful waste of time and a hassle-free experience. They are a "jack of all trades" who make sure a job is completed on-time and within budget. They hire and manage subcontractors, pull permits, buy materials, and handle issues related to liability and warranties.

While it's important to get quotes from at least 3 contractors before hiring anyone and to watch out for warning signs (for example, if they request the entire payment upfront), it can be equally as important to make sure they are nearby. Contractors in your area can negotiate better prices for materials and labor, can source local materials, and typically know your area's code requirements.

When you start to interview candidates, here are some questions you should ask:

  • Are you licensed and do you have general liability and workman's compensation insurance?
  • Do you have client references, industry certifications, and have there been any legal suits against your company?
  • How long have you been in business and do you guarantee your work?
  • What is the structure of the payment agreements?
  • Can you describe and compare my project to others you have completed and what challenges may arise?
