  • How to Choose a General Contractor
    Choosing a contractor for your project can be a daunting task. Many people don't know where to start. How do you know if a contractor is reputable? What can you expect? The Washington Department of Labor and Industry has a very valuable tool on their website to help you get started. There is a checklist available for homeowners and there is a "look up" tool to check the status of contractors with the state. Click here to access the website.

    Ask questions. How are change orders handled? What is the contractor's warranty policy?

    Ask for referrals and testimonials.
    Recommendations
    Use sites like Pinterest for your inspiration. Giving contractors specific visuals can ensure that the customer and contractor are on the same page.
