Have you recently asked for a bid on a construction project? If so, don’t be afraid to ask questions. A reputable contractor welcomes questions and will enjoy describing the details of the proposed work to you. Ask that any changes (change orders) to the original bid be presented to you in writing and described in detail for you to sign prior to additional work being performed. Don’t be afraid to ask clarifying questions. A reputable contractor welcomes questions and is always working toward educating the building owner with all aspects of the project. Ask for and check references of your selected contractor.
