Knowing how to pick the right contractor for the job can make or break your renovation. In the past, we’ve covered extensively the ins and outs of picking the right contractor. Interviewing the candidates, meeting with contractors at the job site, getting a written estimate from each company and ensuring that your contractor is properly licensed and insured are all ways that you can find the right contractor for your needs.
