Finding the Right Contractor: Questions to Ask

With so many out there, it’s a tough challenge for any homeowner to find the right contractor they can count on for fully functional windows, siding, and seamless gutters in Denver. You can increase the odds in your favor by asking a few questions that will help you narrow down your search and get you on the right track.

What were your past jobs?

It might sound like an odd thing to ask, but a company that does great work will never hesitate to sound off its past work. Try to ask about nearby homes they’ve worked on so you can do a drive-by ocular to check out their work. If you’re not feeling particularly shy, you can even go so far as to ask their past customers for input. It’s always best to see for yourself what you can expect from them.

Do you have a written agreement to cover everything?

Misunderstandings and mistakes can hamper even the most professional of contractors. The important thing is what they do to make sure you’re completely satisfied. A written agreement that is fleshed out and covers all the bases only shows how committed a contractor is to getting a job done right. These agreements will cover almost every foreseeable circumstance and will lean toward your benefit overall.

What credentials set you apart from the competition?

If you ask what credentials a contractor has, they’re likely going to enumerate several that are common to others. Better Business Bureau accreditations are at the top of this list in that they ensure that contractor’s services are reliable. What you want to look out for are certifications that are specific to your needs. This is important because getting these certifications requires companies to pass through rigorous testing and meet high standards.
