Home improvement, as the name suggests, is the repair, maintenance or restoration of any residential real property that will increase its value. This includes, but is not limited to, painting and resurfacing of pavement and driveways; installation of decks, porches, additions and more.
The best way to choose a contractor is by comparing bids and ensuring that each one has the experience, qualifications and skills you require for the job. Always be sure to check for references and make sure they are licensed, bonded and insured.
A good contractor should be experienced in a wide range of home improvement projects, including the ones on this list. They should also be able to deliver the quality of work you expect at a price you can afford.
Before you hire a contractor, check their experience and credentials by looking at their online reviews, customer feedback and recommendations from friends and family. Then, compare their prices to other contractors bidding on the same project. Be sure to read over the contract before signing, and to ask questions of the contractor if you have any concerns.
