If you’re considering a major home renovation or residential construction project, the first step is finding an experienced, skilled and reputable contractor that you can trust. We’ve all heard stories of someone being ripped off by a contractor or being left with less than satisfactory work. If you’re worried about hiring the right contractor, Goodfellas Construction in Calgary shares some valuable advice:
First, do a background check.
A trustworthy contractor will have no problem showing you a proof of their insurance and their business license. They should also have WCB insurance coverage before starting to work on your project. Don’t feel shy asking them for these things. Without them, you could be left unprotected and liable for any accidents or damage that might occur on the job site. You should also check the Better Business Bureau to see if they have any outstanding or unresolved complaints against them. Learn more about interviewing a renovation contractor.
Always ask for references.
A company that has built its reputation and business on customer referrals is a great company to have working on your project. Having a long list of happy customers who are excited to give an optimistic reference can not only help a renovation company succeed, it can also give you peace of mind that your customer experience will be positive and that your project results will meet or exceed your expectations. Goodfellas Construction has a good reputation in the industry and will have no problem providing references.
View some of their past work.
To get a good idea of a contractor’s capabilities, ask to see images of some of their past projects. This will give you an idea of the type and complexity of the projects they typically work on. If a company claims to specialize in kitchen renovations, but can’t show samples of any past renovations, that is not a good sign. Looking at images of completed renovations might also give you some inspiration for your own home renovation.
