If you are currently planning a large construction project, one of the most important initial steps is to hire the right construction company for it. After you have identified potential partners, the next step is face to face contact – only a personal meeting can give you enough information for a good decision. Here are some topics to cover during that interview:
- Credentials – you need a contractor that is licensed, insured and bonded and that has experience with the type of projects that you have. Ask the company representative you are talking to to provide copies of all their credentials and take the time to check the documents, too. Ask to be shown the construction company’s portfolio as well – the work they provided for previous clients is a very important indicative of quality;
- The building process – ask the contractor to tell you about the steps involved with the building project as well. Prepare a list of questions before you meet and find out as much as you can about how each project is handled and how long each phase will take;
- Warranties – you need a contractor such as Haselden Construction of Denver that stands by their work, so ask about warranties on the materials as well as on the workmanship.
