Ask About Their Credentials

Regardless of how big or small the job is, you need to be able to put your trust in your contractor completely. Build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask to see proof of their contracting license and insurance – any home service professional worth the money will be glad to oblige you.

Also check out their reputation. See what past customers have said about their services from multiple sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. They’re just one thing to consider when looking at your options.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your home better than you, so don’t be afraid to voice any concerns you have about the job with any potential home service provider. Are you worried about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than drapes?

Get the Details on Installation Day

Depending on the scale of your project, installation day can be grueling and long, or it could be a snap. No matter what, be sure to get the details for installation day. These are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

  • How many contractors might be coming in and out of my house?

  • Do I need to cover any furniture or make any other preparations?

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

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You might not need to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Most San Jose contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.

Sunburst Shutters San Jose is one of those contractors that offer financing. With balanced interest rates, we can help you figure out the best financing plan for your budget.
