I'm Looking For A Good Contractor, Where Are They

If you're really looking for a good contractor, they're out there. The only problem is how you actually find one of them. I don't know how many times I've looked through the Yellow Pages, used online construction referral services and even asked my friends and family for referrals.

I don't know how many times someone has referred me to a contractor that they truly loved, but by the time they were done working on my project, I was only left with disgust and disappointment. This isn't the first time that something like this has happened and I'm sure that it won't be the last.

If you're really looking for a good contractor, you need to ask your self some questions first. What type of contractor are you looking for? How much money do you want to spend on the project? How important is it for your contractor and his construction crew to have enough experience to complete the project correctly?

It's not just about finding a contractor that fits into two of these categories, you need to find a contractor that fits and all three of them. What type of contractor are you looking for? If you're looking for the cheapest contractor, are you willing to sacrifice quality and experience for pricing?

If your contractor has 30 years experience remodeling bathrooms, but his construction crew only has two years of experience, this isn't going to work in your favor. Start by asking yourself the right questions first, before you start looking for a good contractor.

Make a list of all of the things that you're looking for in a contractor, before you start searching for one. It's not going to do you or the contractor any good, if you really don't know what type of contractor you’re truly looking for.
