Michael Stuart's curator insight, October 22, 2013 3:15 AM
General Suggestions
  1. Get three estimates to ensure that you get a well-rounded view of project issues and costs. Make sure that each contractor is bidding on the exact same set of specifications and plans.
  2. Make sure you understand the plans and specifications that the contractor gives you as part of the contract.
  3. Ask for proof of insurance, licensing and local references.
  4. Make a selection based on overall value and not just cost. Spending a little less to get an end product that you are not pleased with is no bargain.
  5. Develop an open channel of communication right from the start
  6. Understand at the onset that your building project will probably cost a little more than you initially think and that it will probably take a little longer than you think. Going in prepared will help you keep your peace of mind.
