Help protect yourself and your home by knowing your rights before starting a home renovation. Learn how to hire a reliable contractor and see what you need to include in your contract with them.
Ask the right questions
- Can I get references from people who have had a similar work done in their homes?
- Will my estimate be included as part of my contract?
- Will you get any building permits on my behalf? Can you say so in my contract?
- How will we handle any disagreements or disputes? Can you include that in the contract?
- If I cancel my contract after the work is started, will I have to pay for any work or materials?
