You need to establish criteria for hiring a renovator/contractor. As you collect names, you may want to keep the following in mind:
Professional should act professionally. That includes respecting your time and availability by keeping appointments or contacting you if something unforeseen occurs. They offer a reasonable appearance and deal with your concerns and questions. They follow through with commitments. How they operate before the work begins should be an indicator of how the work will progress.
Communication is key. They should be active listeners and not try to force something on you because it would be convenient for them rather than what you want or need. They should be able to translate your dreams into a workable plan of action. If there is a communication gap, you may need to keep looking.
Experience. Feel comfortable with the amount of experience and expertise that are being offered.
Reputation. The contractor should offer references. You need to be proactive in contacting banks or financial institutions, suppliers, and other businesses that are associated with renovation to get as clear a picture as you can have prior to commitment.
