Adding a garage to your home or building onto your existing garage is no small job, and hiring the right contractor can make all the difference in the timeline and quality of the work. A garage addition offers you much more space and increases the value of your home.
- Licenses and Insurance: When you are hiring a contractor, solicit competitive bids and always determine if your potential contractor is licensed and insured. Additionally, consider the advantages of a contractor who uses professional education and training for personnel.
Beware the contractor that offers you a final quote without full knowledge of your garage addition beforehand. As always, if your potential contractor is uninsured and unlicensed, then choose someone else. If you experience any sales pressure or your contractor does not seem interested in obtaining the appropriate building permits, then it's time to find a better one.
- Financial Backing: While there are plenty of contractors with real world experience, always ask for references. Keep in mind that smaller operations may have the necessary know-how to complete your project, but they might not be able to do it in a decent amount of time. Smaller companies don't always have sound financial backing, which could leave you with a half completed garage addition.
This doesn't mean all large companies are created equal either. Hold any possible contractor to the same standards, and see if they have experience in custom home building to ensure your garage addition will turn out the way you want it.
