Must-Ask Questions When Working With a Austin Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is a lot of things: Austin shutter installers, home design pros, and more. But basically, you can just call us Austin contractors.

There are a lot of contractors in Austin, and it may be difficult to pick the right one. Whether you’re planning a kitchen renovation, new flooring, or new window treatments – choosing the right team is essential. These are some questions to ask the next time you hire a Austin contractor for your next project.

Ask About Their Credentials

No matter the size of your next project, you should be able to put your trust in your contractor 100%. You can build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask for proof of their contracting license and insurance – any home service professional worth the money will be happy to do so.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. See what other customers have said about their services from some of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

Be careful not to make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one source to keep in mind when looking at your options.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

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

Get the Details on Installation Day

Depending on the scale of your project, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a walk in the park. For any size project, be sure to get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole install take?

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

  • Will I need to move any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • Will there be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Plans

You might not have to wait and save for months to schedule your home improvement project. Most Austin contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
