Hire the right team to turn your vision into reality.

Unless you’re a skilled expert with an abundance of time, you’ll want to hire a professional team of contractors when building or renovating your home. The first step to transforming your ideas on paper into solid cement walls is to hire the reliable construction company. Fortunately, there are some great teams available to you in Southern California.

So that you hire the right professionals, be sure to ask them these questions.

Can I verify your license and insurance?
Sure, your friend’s friend may know a guy who can do the work with hired help, but you’ll need certain assurances before permitting such work. The team should be licensed to work in the state, and have the correct insurances and bonds to protect you and them from incidents.

How long have you been in business?
It’s always better to go with a contractor that has been in business for a few years. This will ensure they’re not lacking experience or even a fly-by-night contractor who will leave town before the job is even finished.

Do you have references and a portfolio?
Ask for a list of references who you can call to gain some insight on the construction company’s previous work. A picture portfolio also helps to determine the quality of the contractor’s work. Look for clean-cut finishes on walls and floors, and view before and after pictures to see the extent of construction.

Do you have experience doing similar plans project to mine?
If you’re planning on adding on a bedroom, you’ll want to ensure that the construction crew has had experience in doing just that. Not only is it for your peace of mind, but for safety, too. However, if you’ve thought of an out-of-the-box idea, don’t be afraid to go with a creative crew that take on unique and quirky projects.

Can we visit one of your current or recently completed projects?
There is nothing like seeing the quality of work in person or getting to meet and see the crews in action. A good contractor usually has a few projects running at any time, carry great relationships with their clients, and should have no problem taking you on a tour of their current projects or recently completed ones.

Do you keep a clean work place?
Experienced contractors understand it is important to keep your home neat and clean. At the end of each day, the construction crew should take the time to clean up the areas in which they worked.
