Questions To Ask When Hiring a Orlando Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is many things: Orlando shutter installers, home design professionals, and more. But in the end, you could just call us Orlando contractors.

There are tons of contractors in Orlando, and it can be hard to choose the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new floors, or new window treatments – doing business with the right team is essential. These are some questions to ask the next time you hire a Orlando contractor for your next project.

Check Their Credentials

Regardless of how big or small the job is, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor completely. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask for proof of their contracting license and insurance – any home service professional worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also check out their reputation. 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

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. They’re just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your home 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 concerned about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better idea than Roman shades?

Get the Details on Install Day

Depending on what your project is, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a walk in the park. No matter what, it’s important to ask about the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the installation take?

  • How many workers will be coming into my house?

  • Will I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • How likely is there to be any dust or fumes during or after the installation?

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Plans

You don’t always need to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Many Orlando contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
