Before you schedule an initial meeting with any contractor, you should:
- Gather any project ideas and information you’ve collected.
- Prepare a comprehensive list of “needs” and “wants.”
- Determine your desired budget and your maximum budget.
- Compile a list of specific questions for the contractor
Once you’re ready to put a meeting on the calendar, consider how easy it is to get in touch with the contractor to schedule an appointment:
- Did someone answer the phone right away?
- If you left a message, did they return your call promptly?
- Did they follow up with a confirmation email?
These things may seem incidental, but they’re actually a good indicator of what you can expect if you end up choosing this contractor for your project.
