Hiring a Contractor
Hiring an experienced and knowledgeable renovator is key to a successful renovation project. You are placing what may be the largest asset you own - your home - in someone else's hands, along with your dreams. You are also inviting someone into your life for days, weeks, sometimes even longer. So you need to find a renovator you can trust and work with.
Dealing with a professional renovator is your greatest protection against an incompetent or unfinished job. A written contract spells out the arrangements between you and your renovator and describes your renovation in detail. Professional renovators also carry workers' compensation, liability insurance and any licenses required by your province.
