Regardless of the contractor you choose, getting onboard with a qualified contractor is imperative. Keep the following tips and information in mind as you begin your search for the right contractor.
- Insured Contractors
Protection of deposits and insurance are some of the biggest concerns to keep in mind. Renovation and construction areas are inherently hazardous for a variety of reasons. In many cases, multiple professionals are working together in a home that maintains occupants. For this reason, regardless of whether your project is big or small, hiring a contractor that does not carry WCB and proper liability insurance for both personal injury and property damage is extremely risky. Additionally, a contractor must be bonded and licensed by the Province of Alberta to accept deposits. A deposit given to an unlicensed contractor is not safeguarded if things go sideways. Make sure you obtain a copy of your contractors CGL insurance certificate and Pre-paid Contractor License prior to commencing work or handing over your deposit. If you’d like to make sure a license is valid, visit the Service Alberta website and instantly confirm your contractor is licensed.
- Maintains a Good Reputation
In today’s world of businesses built on reviews, the best contractors are often easily found online or through word-of-mouth. While every project will be a unique experience and process, checking online reviews and ratings can provide a good idea of what to expect from your contractor in terms of customer service and results.
