Tips on Interviewing and Hiring a Contractor

  • Are you licensed? Ask to see a copy and check with local licensing agencies.
  • Are you Insured? Contractors should have liability and workers compensation.
  • Are you bonded? Ask for proof and be sure of what is covered.
  • How much will the project cost? Get the cost of the project in writing, make sure it is detailed with supplies and time frame broken down, and deposit. You want to be able to compare jobs apples to apples. Be leery of any bid that is considerably lower if it is too good to be true, it usually is.
  • Will you do all of the work or will there be a subcontractors? You want to be sure who is coming to your jobsite and that they are as reputable as the primary contractor.
  • Ask for references. Make sure to contact former clients. Ask for their experience with the contractor.
  • How can I get in touch with you? Important to get a physical address along with business and cell phone numbers. The more ways you can connect the better.
  • Spend time asking questions. 
  • Is a permit required for installation of a dock or seawall? It is best to check with local authorities, and even the Army Corps of Engineers, before starting a project.
  • I have a bid from a local constructor for the building & installation of a dock. He said he was not required to be licensed. Where do I call to verify that licensing is not necessary?
