What to ask a general contractor

Before the work begins, it’s important to meet with potential contractors. It’ll give you a chance to chat about your project and get a feel for each of them as a person. If you find that you get along better with one general contractor versus another, trust that gut feeling – it’s a good sign! That said, we still suggest asking them at least some of the following questions to better understand what kind of work you’ll be getting into.


10 questions to ask general contractors

  • Do you provide turnkey renovation solutions?
  • How long will the renovation take?
  • How many subcontractors will be involved in the process?
  • Who will be supervising the work getting done?
  • Will I need to prepare the construction site ahead of time or will your team be doing that?
  • Is debris disposal included in your quote?
  • What precautions will you take to avoid damaging my home?
  • What is the payment schedule?
  • How long have you been working with (business name and licence number, if applicable)?
  • Will the signed quote become our agreement, or will a contract be drawn up?
