How to Choose a Great Remodeling Contractor in Schenectady

Renovation contractors deliver a number of types of services, and not all contractors offer the same level of service. An independent renovation business may only take on simple jobs, for example, while a bigger business sometimes take on your entire property over a period of several weeks. Take advantage of the tips in the below list to seek out the right contractor in Schenectady for your work.

The remodeling provider you select should:

  • Be certified. Ask prospective contractors if they have the credentials for the project. Does the contractor have the necessary certifications and licenses for your area? Are they involved with any trade organizations?
  • Be protected. Basic insurance is important for remodelers who work on your house. Coverage protects the contractor as well as you.
  • Have experience. What length of time has the local remodeling service worker been in business? Contractors with the greatest amount of experience tend to be the most dedicated.
  • Be available. If a provider is busy, it’s a good sign that they’re in high demand. Still, you should go for a a candidate who can commit to the scheduling parameters for your project.
  • Work within your budget. The remodeler you select should be willing to stay within the budget you may have.
  • Be recommended. Feedback from past clients is important. Check feedback and reviews, and ask for references for short-listed remodelers. Pay additional attention to information from previous homeowners with work comparable to yours.

If you’re adding a home addition or just renovating, changes to your home can feel like a big job. Finding a good company with experience in remodeling near Schenectady can make the whole process smoother.

HomeAdvisor provides you with the tools to seek out the greatest local remodeling contractors for your needs, no matter its scope. Your search starts with entering your ZIP and providing basic information regarding your needs.

Frequently asked questions

  • It’s important that you verify their license is still in good standing. Also keep in mind that certain states or provinces don’t require licensing if the job is under a certain dollar amount.
  • You can find a list of your state’s licensing requirements on the HomeAdvisor website. Before you get to work with the pro, make sure their qualifications are current and acceptable to you.
  • It is always a good idea to get a copy of the pro’s insurance certificate for future records, and in case anything happens. This is a good way to feel more secure in your home project, and to weed out potential scammers.

HomeAdvisor makes it easy to connect with pros near you. You can read reviews, get quotes and book appointments all in one place.

Depending on the type of project, you may find subtle differences in the hiring process. Here’s a look at task-specific advice.

You can use HomeAdvisor to help evaluate a contractor’s qualifications. We put pros through a screening process, and award badges to high-performing contractors. You can find these badges on a pro’s HomeAdvisor profile, and sometimes, his or her website. 

Your research doesn’t stop here. Once you’ve found a few prospective companies, make an call to ask a few questions about work history, licensure and more:

  • Have you completed a job like this before?
  • Do you have a list of references I can contact?
  • When are you able to start the job?

In most cases, the responses you get to these three questions will give you a very good idea of the right pro for your project. If you have more than one front-runner, these additional questions can help you narrow it down. 

  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • What’s your permanent business address?
  • Are you licensed to work in my area?
  • When did you earn your business license?
  • How do you handle warranty service complaints?
  • Do you have worker’s compensation, property damage and personal liability insurance?

Any good contractor will answer these questions, and most will appreciate dealing with a client that takes such an active interest in finding good service. On the other hand, if a contractor gives you a hard time with these questions, you probably want to find someone else.
