If you don’t use your garage frequently, then getting a garage conversion can help you do more with your space. You can convert your garage into a gym, a home office, a lounge, or anything else you might want. You’ll need great garage conversions contractors to help you with the project. Before choosing a contractor, there are some key questions you’ll want to ask them to make sure they are a good fit. Here’s what you should make sure to bring up in your initial consultation.

Have you worked on projects similar to mine before?

Your ideal contractor is someone who has experience working on similar projects in the past. Ask to see your contractor’s portfolio and see what types of projects they’ve worked on previously. It’s always a good sign when they have projects in their portfolio that are very similar to what you are looking for.

What’s your time frame for this project?

You don’t want your garage conversion project to drag on for a long period of time. Ask your contractor what their schedule is like for the upcoming months, and how long it would take them to complete your project. Ideally, your contractor will be able to complete the project within a reasonable amount of time, but won’t rush through any of the important details.

Are you licensed and what is your insurance like?

It’s crucial that the contractor you choose has the proper licensing to work in your area. It’s also very important that they are insured to protect you from any sort of liability. Make sure to get written proof of their licensing and insurance.

What is your pricing structure?

Your contractor should give you a quote for the project, and they should also be very clear about how they expect payments to be structured. It’s important to get this in writing before committing to such a big project to avoid disputes later.
