Questions to Ask Your Home Improvement Contractor: Part I

By September 16, 2014 No Comments

slider_sidingSearching for the right roofing contractor or window contractor to complete your home improvement project should be taken very seriously.  Since your home is easily the largest investment you’ll make over the course of your life, you wouldn’t want to trust it within just anyone’s hands, right?  We have unfortunately heard too many catastrophes about homeowners making a decision without taking the time to ask the right questions, or completing the proper research, before moving forward with a contractor.  So, before you write your own home improvement horror story, allow us to put forth a few questions you should have answered before anyone bangs nail one into your home.

How long have this home improvement contractor been in business?

This one may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many homeowners let this one slide.  You don’t want some fly-by-night yahoo swinging from your gutters, attempting to install a roof.  People are usually disappointed when they try to reach these hit-and-run contractors a few years later for service, only to discover their contractor’s phone number now belongs to a Chinese take-out restaurant. On the other hand, we here at RIHI will show up to your front door with over 60 years of experience.

Do you give prices over the phone?

The answer you’re looking for here is no.  Any contractor worth his salt realizes you cannot give even a vague ballpark price over the phone without surveying the home. Pricing work over the phone only insults the homeowner, which is why we will work with you to schedule a convenient time for us to meet with you to cover all your questions during a free no-obligation in-home estimate. The only way to properly assess what needs to be done, and how it should be done, is to see it for yourself.

When we meet again on Wednesday we’ll devise a few more questions for your contractor interview. Until then, you can always count on us to give you the right answers at 401-739-1001.
