Questions To Ask When Working With a Virginia Beach Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is a lot of things: Virginia Beach shutter installers, interior fashion experts, and more. But basically, you could just call us Virginia Beach contractors.

There are a lot of contractors in Virginia Beach, and it might be tricky to pick the best one for you. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen remodel, new floors, or new window treatments – choosing the right team is important. Here are a few questions to ask the next time you hire a Virginia Beach contractor for your next project.

Check Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of how big or small the job is, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor 100%. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask to see copies of any certifications and insurance – any home service provider worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also take the time to check their reputation. See what other customers have said about their services from more than one of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. They’re just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options.

Ask Questions Specific To Your Home

No contractor knows your house better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about the job with your potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or wondering if your new wood shutters are a better choice than drapes?

Ask About Install Day

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

  • About how long will the installation take?

  • How many installers will be coming in and out of my house?

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

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

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You might not have to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Lots of Virginia Beach contractors and home service providers can let you pay in installments.
