Q: How do I determine which Tile Installer or Stone Fabricator is best for my residential project?
A: After you have at least three estimates from Licensed, Bonded, and Insured Contractors ask them for three references from previously completed jobs in your area that you may call and possibly visit to view their workmanship. Avoid selecting your contractor on price alone! Total value equals quality, service, and price. Be certain you and the contractor have a comfortable level of communication just as you would with any job interviewee. The written contract between you and your contractor should address, but not be limited to, the scope of work to be done, payment schedule, any necessary building permits, completion date, and their warranty.
