Spring Home Improvement Project

Spring Home Improvement Project

 

Initially you need to make a list of the most important things you would like done in your spring home improvement project, once you put it down on paper rank the projects from 1 to 10.  Now which ones can you do and which ones are going to need an expert for?  When hiring an expert make sure you check them out before you hire them.  Start with the BBB (better business bureau) website and search your contractor.  Secondly, do a search on the internet for your contractor as you’ll be surprised how much information you can find out.  Lastly,  it’s time to schedule an appointment with your contractor and get a written bid. This helps in two ways; first, you get a feel for your contractor and their abilities.  Secondly, the written bid lets you get a gauge on how much the project will cost you and also keeps your contractor in check so that the cost does not suddenly inflate at the end of the project. If you’re happy with your contractor and the bid this is the time in which you should schedule the work with your contractor and get an agreement written up which is signed by both parties.  Remember that spring time is the start of the busy season for your contractor so allow plenty of time between scheduling and the actual start of the spring home improvement project.
