Your Minneapolis home will probably be the largest monetary investment you make in your entire life. When it needs work — whether this means routine maintenance or something must be repaired — you might feel a bit lost when it comes to finding a high-quality contractor. While not inclusive — and you still need to do your due diligence by checking references — the following tips can provide you with a strong foundation onto which to base your decision.
1. Is the contractor licensed?
Ensuring that the contractor that you use is properly licensed is your assurance that their contact information is on record. By being licensed by the state of Minnesota as a residential building contractor immediately tells you that they are a reputable company within your community.
2. Are they bonded and do they have insurance?
Of course, you do not want to think about anything going wrong with your home maintenance or repair job. However, sometimes accidents happen or things just do not go as planned. In order to protect your investment, always make sure that any contractors you use are bonded and insured.
3. Does the contractor offer free estimates?
If you are like many homeowners, you know that your roof needs to be repaired or your gutters have to be replaced. What you are not sure about, though is how these projects fit into your current budget. A contractor that takes the time to go over your Minneapolis home and inspect it thoroughly is able to provide you with a reasonably accurate quote of the costs involved. Additionally, a seasoned contractor can also often provide you with a fairly accurate time frame — barring any unforeseen occurrences such as inclement weather and the like.
4. Is financing available?
A new roof for your home or business is quite a hefty investment. Many homeowners and business owners simply do not have the thousands of dollars in reserve that are needed for this type of project. A contractor that provides you with the option to finance the job is someone who understands their customers.
