Hiring a good contractor for basement finishing Toronto can be easy if you
know the right steps to take. You need to be sure that the contractor that you
will hire will do a great job and give you value for money. It is the contractor
that you will choose that will either make or break your project. Finding the
right contractor for your job will determine the quality as well as timeliness of
the work, and also the amount of emotional as well as financial stress that you
will have to deal with.
To be sure that you are getting the right person for the job, one of the things
you need to do is determine if their bid is an estimate or a fixed price. There
are some basement finishing Toronto contractors that treat their bids as
estimates, meaning bills could end up being higher in the end. So make sure
that you request a fixed price bid to be on the safe side.
If you come across a contractor that is reluctant to offer a fixed price due to
many unknowns about the job, you should try to eliminate those unknowns.
For instance, you can have the contractor open up a wall or examine a crawl
space. If it is not possible to resolve the unknowns, it will be a good idea to
have the project specs describe only what the contractor expects to do. In case
additional work is needed, you can do a change order, which is simply a
written mini-bid for new work.
Another thing you need to do before hiring a basement finishing Toronto
contractor is find out how long they have been doing business in your area. A
contractor that has been plying his trade locally for 5 or 10 years has an
established network of subcontractors as well as suppliers in the area and also a
local reputation to uphold. Such a contractor is a safer bet compared to
someone that has is either new in the industry or is planning to commute to
your job from 50 miles away.
