1)      Bonded and Insured– Companies that perform home renovations are required by law to be insured and bonded. A small number of companies operate without these required documents. One of the first questions to ask is “Are you bonded and insured”

2)      Reputation– Each renovator you interview should be able to provide references and testimonials from existing clients. Ask for references and follow up with them.

3)      Financing– Some renovators offer financing. You may or may not require financing but if you do ask each renovator you interview what they can do for you.

4)      Workmanship Guarantee– Material used by renovators is often backed with a warrantee. If the material is installed according to manufacturer’s specifications the renovator will also offer a warrantee on the installation.

5)      Dust and Dirt– Renovation projects are almost always dirty and dusty. How does your renovator handle, drywall dust, garbage and non-biodegradable materials, etc?

6)      Who’s the boss– When it is a team performing the renovation you’ll want to find out who is in charge. If there is something you are not happy with as the project gets underway you’ll want to discuss it with the boss.
