Home improvement projects demand a considerable investment of your energy, time and money. To get the most out of your projects, ask your contractor the right questions. This can also prevent conflicts from occurring that may cause delays. As the leading window installation service in our area, Timberland Exteriors shares some of the most important questions you need to ask your contractor:
What Happens if There’s an Order Change?
You need to know what will happen if something needs to be changed while the project is ongoing. Fortunately, you can easily handle order changes on your contract. A typical method to document order changes is through writing, where the changes in price and scope of work are noted and signed by both you and your contractor. It’s important to have a plan in place to record any changes that occur throughout your project.
What Is Your Plan to Protect My Property?
Whether it’s roof replacement or a fiber cement siding installation, any home improvement project can cause a lot of mess. Before the project begins, ask your contractor how they will uphold safety standards and how they plan on protecting your home. This way, you can have an idea which parts of your home need to be isolated and you will learn how you will be able to move through your home once the project begins.
How Do You Plan to Communicate?
All of us have our own preferred mode of communication and contractors are no different. If your contractor’s format doesn’t match yours, both of you should decide on a method before the project begins. In addition, if the project will take long, you need to schedule regular meetings. During those meetings, your contractor should address all of your concerns and answer all of your questions regarding the status of your project.
Asking these questions can help ensure your new roof installation is a success. Timberland Exteriors can help you with a wide variety of home improvement projects. In fact, we are a proud recipient of the 2018 Guildmaster Award from GuildQuality, a customer satisfaction surveying company based in Atlanta.
