Are you thinking of renovating your old kitchen or redecorating your bathroom to finally install that flooring you have always wanted? Whether the work to be done in your home is big or small, it is always advisable to hire a licensed kitchen and bath contractor to do the work for you. By hiring a professional, you can avoid making potential mistakes that could cost you a fortune to fix. If you are looking for a professional to get your dream kitchen and bathroom, here’s a list of the top five things to look for in a kitchen and bathroom contractor.   

1. License
When reviewing potential contractors, the first thing you should do is look for proper licenses and necessary documents. This can help you narrow down your search from several contractors to a few licensed professionals carrying valid credentials. A good contractor should be able to produce a copy of their license and those of the major subcontractors they routinely work with. 

2. Insurance
It is essential that you ask your contractor for proof of insurance to find out whether they come with general liability and worker’s compensation. Having this indicates that any damage or incident occurring during the project is covered by insurance, and you are not held liable for any particular situation. 

3. Fixed location
With big renovations, you want to make sure that you are complying with city ordinances or requirements and peris that the city will require. With a contractor that has a history of working in your general area, you can breathe easier knowing that they have complied with safety and other regulations. It also helps to have them in a fixed and nearby location so that they can come by quickly in case of emergency adjustments. 

4. References
Don’t be afraid to ask about their past work and past client’s references. Speak to previous clients, and if they are pleased with the contractor’s work, it means you can be assured that you have found an experienced contractor who will go above and beyond to do justice to your project and make sure you are satisfied. 

5. Years of service
Does your contractor have the experience necessary to meet the scope of the project? It is vital to know that a contractor has an excellent reputation as it is a very valuable asset. A contractor with years of experience might have worked with projects similar to yours before and will know how to get the necessary plans and materials to make you a final product of a high standard.
