No matter what kind of project you are tackling, your general contractor should have a good track record of completed work and satisfied customers. Search for the best general contractors in Washington, D.C., and look for positive customer reviews and project photos that are similar to your project. 

Make sure your general contractor has the proper license, insurance and registration. You can ask pros to send you this information, or you can search for it online

Hire a D.C. contractor after you receive cost estimates from at least three or five general contractors.
