It is not so very easy to find a really great renovation contractor as most people might be thinking. Just because someone can handle tools does not make him/her a good contractor. It is very important to do some research about your renovation contractor to confirm qualifications, skills, reliability and integrity. There are a lot of renovation contractors here in the GTA, but it can be very challenging to identify the best one for your needs, though there are a number of good ones really are available - including ARTISTIC Contracting. There are a few things you can do to avoid the not so great renovation contractors. One is to ensure that the renovation contractor can clearly figure out the scope of the job, and knows what you want to get done before sending out any price quotations. Understandably, you cannot expect a precise quote if the renovation contractor does not come out personally to see you and discuss your needs with you at the place where the work is to take place. The condition of your property ought to be viewed in order to know what work needs to be done. As well, a professional renovation contractor will be open enough to tell you that the design you like is not feasible. He/she must put into consideration the structural integrity of your property and discuss with you other design options which might work better for you. He/she will also explain how a design or layout can increase or decrease the cost of the job. As renovation jobs will most likely need work licenses and inspections, your chosen contractor must have a clear understanding of these requirements. Discuss with him/her to confirm if you need to get a license, and whether you will have to get it yourself or if he/she will get it for you. Always remember to put everything down that you have agreed to in a contract. The contract must clearly state what kind of work will be done, the target date of completion of each task, and what are the materials required. Specify in the contract the payments to be made. It is also good to add resolutions for deadlines that may not be met. ARTISTIC Contracting can save you the time and headache it takes for you to find a terrific renovation contractor.
