Questions To Ask When Hiring a Honolulu Contractor

May 29, 2018

Here at Sunburst we’re many things: Honolulu shutter installers, interior fashion experts, and more. But in the end, you could just call us Honolulu contractors.

There are a lot of contractors in Honolulu, and it might be hard to choose the best one for you. Whether you’re planning a kitchen remodel, new flooring, or new window treatments – choosing the right team is important. These are some questions to ask the next time you hire a Honolulu contractor for your home improvement project.

Ask About Your Contractor’s Credentials

Regardless of the size of your next project, you need to be able to trust your contractor 100%. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask for copies of their contracting license and insurance – any home service provider worth the money will be glad to oblige you.

Also be sure to look at some reviews. Find out what other customers have said about the contractor from more than one of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of implicitly trusting online reviews. Reviews are just one part of the puzzle that you can research when looking at your options.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your home better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about your project with any potential contractor. Are you worried about how the new flooring you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than wood blinds?

Find Out About Install Day

Depending on how big your project is, install can be grueling and long, or it could be a snap. Either way, you should get the details for installation day. Here are a few to get you started.

  • Roughly how long will the full job take?

  • How many contractors might be coming in and out of my house?

  • Do I need to cover any furniture or anything else in the house?

  • How likely is there to be any fumes or dust during or after the installation?

  • How much noise should I expect?

  • Will my kids or pets need to be out of the house during the installation?

Ask About Your Payment Options

You might not have to wait and save for months to schedule your home improvement project. Most Honolulu contractors and home service providers offer payment options or financing assistance.
