Licensure and Insurance

Your general contractor should be fully licensed to practice in your state, in addition to having licenses and certifications for the various types of work to be done. They should also have adequate insurance, including worker’s compensation insurance. Ask to see their licenses and insurance documentation before hiring.

Experience and References

The most experienced general contractors are going to be the most likely to get your project done quickly and get it right the first time around. Look for general contractors who have been in the industry for several years. Also ask for references and check them. Getting referrals from people you know is also a good idea.

Experienced and Trained Professionals

Most general contractors will hire subcontractors for specific types of work such as electrical or plumbing. The best general contractor will have several companies that they work with to subcontract such work. They will ensure that any subcontractors are completely professional and fully trained, and they will only hire the best.
