That's more than three decades of experience! To help you navigate your next construction project, AWC Construction would like to offer a little bit of their expertise and share with you these 4 things you need to know when hiring a contractor:

1. Make sure whomever you hire is licensed and insured

When a contractor is licensed, it means they've met the requirements of the state licensing commission. Your contractor should also be insured with liability and workers compensation if there are employees, so you’ll be protected in the event someone gets hurt or something is not done right.

2. Ask as many questions as you can

It is the contractor's job to work with you every step of the construction process, and that includes answering any questions you may have, so don't hesitate to pick their brain! Asking questions will help you to better understand everything that is going on.

3. Make sure the permit is pulled by the contractor

When you hire a licensed contractor, they are the ones who are responsible for doing the work, which means they are also responsible for pulling the permit, so make sure they take care of this themselves.

4. Ask and check for references

Before making any hiring decisions, it's very important the contractor gives you a list of references so that you can contact former clients and ask about their experience with that contactor.
