Topics to address with potential home improvement contractors

Making improvements to your home makes you feel good about your residence while increasing the value of your property. Many homeowners in Florida want to make home improvements but are cautious about the process itself as well as the contractors available to perform the work. Often, these people fear an unreasonably lengthy construction process as well as shoddy workmanship and the possibility of legal issues.

We all know that it is not always possible to eliminate every potential problem that might occur in a home construction project. However, as construction law attorneys, we want you to know that you can improve your chances of hiring a great contractor. This can go a long way in helping you avoid legal issues that could result in costly delays to your project.

Your first and arguably most important tool is the interview process you conduct with your shortlist of contractors. If you arm yourself with the right topics, it is possible for you to weed out the worst contenders and home in on the right contractor. Here are just a few topics we advise homeowners to address during an interview.

  • Experience with similar projects
  • References from other clients
  • Registered and licensed with the state
  • Written warranties
  • Whether subcontractors are required
  • Required permits

Asking the right questions and checking references can help you identify potential construction law issues that might interrupt your home improvement project. In turn, your project stands a better chance of being completed on time and to specifications.
