Choosing a Contractor
  • Look for qualities like a willingness to listen to you and what you want, clear communication, compatibility with your style, and a feeling of mutual trust.
  • Always request a written proposal. Before requesting a bid, be sure to provide as much specific information as you can, including drawings and sample photos, so that the contractor has a full understanding of the scope of your project.
  • Prioritize your project when requesting a proposal. Provide your contractor with a list of what’s most important to you when it comes to such things as craftsman-ship, durability, functionality, appearance/style, quality of materials, etc.
  • The lowest cost proposal isn’t necessarily the best! Don’t pressure the company to provide the lowest bid as this could result in unexpected surprises and cost overruns.
  • Always choose a contractor that is licensed, bonded and insured. Ask to see the contractor’s business license and proof of the company’s property damage and personal liability coverage. Ask for references or contact the Better Business Bureau to determine whether the company has had any complaints.

    Question:

    If you don’t do something I need done, can you help me find someone who can?

    Answer: If we can’t do the job we will refer you to someone who can. If it relates to a project that we are, or will be, doing we will sub-contract the work out. We have been in the trades for over 20 years here in the Seattle area. We know who we can trust to call on to help out our customers on their projects.
