1.) Find Contractors to Choose From
- Get referrals from someone you know
If a family member, friend or neighbor recently had work done on their home, they may be able to explain the experience they had with their chosen contractor. If they were happy with the end result, you may want to consider contacting their contractor for a quote on your upcoming job.
- Attend home shows
Many home shows include hundreds of exhibitors featuring products and services, including contractors. This can serve as a great place to gather ideas for your new project and meet a large pool of contractors in one location.
- Visit manufacturer websites
If you have a specific product in mind for the job, try visiting the manufacturer’s website to find a reliable contractor. Many times a manufacturer will offer a network of their very best contractors, because their reputation is on the line if the product is installed poorly. Manufacturer preferred contractors may also have stronger warranties, a wider product offering, special training and certification, etc.
