The Arizona contractor you select will ultimately determine the success of and your satisfaction with their remodeling job. By asking the following questions, you will learn the qualifications and reputation of the contractor and select the right company for the job. What you don't know can harm you.
Have you or you employees been certified in remodeling or had special training or education, such as earning a Certified Remodeler (CR), Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR), Certified Remodeler Specialist (CRS), or Certified Lead Carpenter (CLC) designation?
This is not an all-inclusive list of questions to ask, but it is a good starting point.
Please be prudent and call to get at least three bids from professionals from independent sources before selecting the best contractor to work for you. Check the Better Business Bureau, too.
It is best to work only with licensed, bonded and insured workers. Get all quotes in writing - preferrably not to exceed a maximum amount. Be prepared to pay for parts and material delivered to the job site.
Don't make final payment for the job until you get all paid receipts, copies of all permits, releases from all subcontractors and the work is done to your satisfaction.
