Must-Ask Questions When Working With a Jacksonville Contractor

May 29, 2018

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

There’s no shortage of contractors in Jacksonville, and it may be difficult to pick the right one. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new flooring, or new window treatments – choosing the right team is essential. Below are a few questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Jacksonville contractor for your upcoming project.

Ask About Your Contractor’s Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you should be able to trust your contractor completely. Build that trust by checking out their credentials. Ask to see copies of their contracting license and certificate of insurance – any contractor worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also take the time to check their reputation. Find out what other customers have said about their services from multiple 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. They’re just one thing to consider when choosing a contractor.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No contractor knows your home better than you, so don’t be afraid to voice any concerns you have about your project with any potential contractor. Are you worried 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 Install Day

Depending on the scale of your project, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a cinch. No matter what, you should get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • About how long will the installation take?

  • How many workers will be coming into my house?

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

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

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will I have to arrange for kids or pets to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Plans

You might not need to wait a long time to schedule your project in order to save up. Many Jacksonville contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
