Must-Ask Questions When Hiring a Indianapolis Contractor

May 29, 2018

Here at Sunburst we’re many things: Indianapolis shutter installers, interior design pros, and more. But when it comes down to it, you could just call us Indianapolis contractors.

There are tons of contractors in Indianapolis, and it may be tricky to choose the right one. Whether you’re planning a kitchen renovation, new floors, or new window treatments – picking the right team is essential. Below are a few questions to ask the next time you hire a Indianapolis contractor for your upcoming project.

Ask About Their Credentials

No matter how big or small the job is, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor 100%. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask to see proof of any certifications and insurance – any contractor worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. See what other customers have said about their services from some of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. Reviews are just one part of the puzzle that you can research when looking at your options.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about the job with your potential home service provider. Are you worried about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than wood blinds?

Find Out About Installation Day

Depending on what your project is, install can be grueling and long, or it could be a cinch. For any size project, be sure to get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the whole project take?

  • How many people might be coming into my house?

  • Do I need to cover any furniture or make any other preparations?

  • Will there be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?
