What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always ask questions! There is no such thing as stupid questions on part of a homeowner. From small jobs to large remodeling projects, it is very important that a homeowner and the contractor stay on the same page throughout the project. The most common reason projects derail or go way over budget is when communication breaks down.
Another thing homeowners need to keep in mind when hiring a contractor, particularly with bigger projects, is meet with several contractors to find a good fit that accommodates everyone's expectations.
Last of all, do your research!!
