Simple Rules for a Good Contractor Relationship

By the Editors of Guide to Home Improvement

We've all heard stories of home renovations going over budget, and taking longer than expected. To avoid either scenario it's important to find the right remodeling contractor, and forge a good working relationship. Follow these tips to help ensure your renovation process stays on track and on budget:

  1. Ask around for referrals. The Better Business Bureau, websites like Guide To Home Improvement, and maybe even the phone book can be good sources when conducting your due diligence, but friends, neighbors and work colleagues who have already gone through a remodel can be a big help when you are seeking out a contractor.

  2. While you should shop around for bids, quotes, and a good match, don't ask a contractor to develop a full estimate unless you are serious about pursuing it. Planning and developing proposals takes time and energy, and if you are already pretty sure that you aren't going to hire them, don't lead them on.

  3. After looking at the estimates, it is courteous to let the contractors you won't be hiring know your decision.

  4. When you hire a contractor, you are hiring a project manager. If you have a spouse or partner, you should decide ahead of time which one of you on the homeowner side will be the point person. This will streamline communication with your chosen contractor and can help prevent mistakes and inefficiencies in the future.

  5. Remember that in all probability you will have to work closely with this person for weeks or months and that they will be in your home. Make sure they pass the personality-compatibility test as much as the budget test. After all, shaving off some of the price isn't worth any lost peace of mind.

While you might hear more about the contractor horror stories, the majority of homeowner/contractor relationships are productive and pleasant. Just be clear about your expectations and communicate regularly. Then you can sit back and enjoy your new remodel
