Top 3 things to do before before you choose to hire
a Designer, Contractor, Home Builder or Remodeler:
1. Ask contractor for References:
Ask for a list of references from the contractor whom you plan on hiring. Any
professional should have several recent references. Obtaining positive feedback from the
contractors previous clients will give you extra assurance that you are making the right
decision about hiring them. You could call the references and ask a few simple questions
- Were you happy with the craftsmanship & overall quality of work?
- Was anything left unfinished or seem unsatisfactory to you?
- Did they leave the job site clean during construction and after completion?
- Would you recommend the contractor to someone else?
In conclusion, if several others have had positive experiences then the chances are likely
you will have a positive experience as well.
2. View their Portfolio. A professional Landscape Designer or
Contractor will have an extensive photo portfolio to showcase their previously
completed projects. When view their portfolio ask yourself:

3. Obtain 3 written bids on your project. Make sure you're comparing apples
to apples, meaning compare similar specifications and scope of work. Do not
automatically accept the lowest bid. Often times a low bidder may perform
low or poor quality workmanship later to learn you have to replace or rebuild again
In the long run it may end up costing you more money than if you just had it done right the
first time. A lower bidder may also be cutting corners or using inferior building materials or
construction techniques. Consider quality and value before making decisions about
something you will be living with for a for possibly decades to come. It may be worth hiring
a professional who has the expertise, proven track record and who has a reputation for high
