Check with a service that keeps track records of various contractors.
You can also use online resources and directory for locating a qualified contractor in your area. Hire only a contractor with strong referrals and high rankings. Depending on the type of project you are planning.
Questions you should ask Possible Candidates:
How long have you been contracting? What licenses and certifications do you carry? How many projects have you completed in the last year; what were they, and who were they for? How many years are you working on home improvement projects? “What references do you have? Will there be any subcontractors, and if so what are their credentials? What insurance coverage do you have? What permits are required for my project?”
Also, check with the appropriate government office to see whether or not there are any unresolved complaints against the contractor before making your final selection.
Call all references and ask questions such as:
Was the project completed on time and were you happy with the results? How well did the contractor communicate with you throughout the project? Were there any cost over-runs? Also ask if the contractor employees were on time, courteous, and whether or not they cleaned up the home improvement site when they were finished?
