This Week’s Real Estate Q & A . . .
 How do I select the right contractor for work at my home?

Answer: Hiring a bad contractor to work on your home could cost you thousands, so here’s a handy checklist to make sure someone is the best person for the job:

  • Get a written estimate of the exact charges for labor and materials.
  • Verify with the State License Board that they are a licensed and insured contractor. On www.contractors-license.org you can find a link to the licensing board and search by the contractor’s name.
  • Ask if they carry workers compensation insurance, in case anyone gets hurt on your property and general liability insurance for any other issues that may arise.
  • Ask the contractor for their building material suppliers and verify their account is up to date to see if they are financially responsible.
  • Ask for and check their list of references. Ask their references a few clarifying questions, such as: “Would you hire them again?,” “Were you satisfied with the quality of work performed?” and “Did they clean up each day?”
