Let’s say you are ready to build or have some remodeling completed, and you are wondering how to pick the right contractor!
This can be an overwhelming task as most people don’t know where to start. If you have a referral, that is great. Here in Maui, that is really less likely as many people don’t live on the island full time. So, then you start browsing the internet, reading reviews, and hoping to find the right person to call. Although this is a good place to start, reviews can be suspect, and every contractor says, “We are the best!”
Pick the Right Contractor Guide
First, Call the Contractor
When you want to pick the right contractor, our first suggestion is to start with a phone call! Get the contractor on the phone and see how fast they respond to you. Do you have to wait and wait for a callback? Are they lacking common sense when you speak with them? Are they listening to you and offering suggestions? These are all critical when picking the right person for you to not only work with but trust with your property and your hard-earned money.
