Must-Ask Questions When Hiring a Destin Contractor

May 29, 2018

Our team here at Sunburst is many things: Destin shutter installers, home design experts, and more. But in the end, you can just call us Destin contractors.

There are a lot of contractors in Destin, and it may be difficult to choose the best one for you. Whether you’re looking for an entire kitchen renovation, new flooring, or new window treatments – doing business with the right team is vital. Here are some questions to ask the next time you’re looking for a Destin contractor for your home improvement project.

Check Their Credentials

No matter the scale of your project, you need to be able to put your trust in your contractor with your home. You can build that trust by making sure their credentials check out. Ask for proof of any certifications and certificate of insurance – any home service provider worth the money won’t hesitate to show them.

Also take the time to check their reputation. See what other customers have said about the contractor from some of these sources:

  • HomeAdvisor

  • Angie’s List

  • Houzz

  • Facebook

  • Google Business

  • Better Business Bureau

  • Yelp

But don’t make the mistake of only relying on online reviews. They’re just one thing to consider when looking at your options.

Ask Questions About Your Specific Project

No one knows your house better than you, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have about the job with any potential home service provider. Are you worried about how the new carpet you want might not work with your subfloor, or thinking about if your new wood shutters are a better idea than Roman shades?

Remember to speak up and ask the questions that are important to your home!

Find Out About Install Day

Depending on the size of your project, install can be a long, exhausting process, or it could be a walk in the park. For any size project, you should get the details for installation day. Start with some of these.

  • About how long will the whole install take?

  • How many workers will be coming in and out of my house?

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

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

  • How noisy will the installation be?

  • Will I need to remove children or pets from the house during the installation?

Find Out Your Payment Plans

You might not have to put your project on hold while you save up the money. Most Destin contractors and home service providers will let you finance the work.
