There are tons of contractors in New Brunswick, and it may be difficult to pick the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen remodel, new floors, or new window treatments – doing business with the right team is crucial. Here are a few questions to ask the next time you hire a New Brunswick contractor for your home improvement project.

Ask About Their Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you should be able to trust your contractor completely. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask to see proof of any certifications and certificate of insurance – any home service provider worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also check out their reputation. See what past customers have said about their services from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one thing to consider when choosing a contractor.

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 any potential home service provider. Are you worried about how the new tile you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than wood blinds?
