While some people might assume that the easiest way to find home addition contractors is by looking through their local yellow pages, it is not generally recommended that contractors be chosen in this manner.  For one thing, you have no way of knowing anything about the names that you find in the phone book and only a very small percentage of contractors promote their businesses in this way.  The best way for you to locate home addition contractors is by asking trusted friends and family members for recommendations.  If this does not produce any viable results for you, then you should strongly consider looking online.

If you decide to search the Internet for home addition contractors, keep in mind the importance of thorough research.  Just as you cannot trust everything that you read online regarding any subject, you also cannot automatically trust everything that you will read about contractors.


Make sure that you carefully research your sources so that you can feel confident that you are only trusting reliable information.  While this process may be time consuming, it will certainly be well worth all of the time and effort that you put into it once you have located the right contractor for your job.  In addition to your online research, make sure that you ask for references from each contractor that you are considering.  Contact each reference and ask them thorough questions about their satisfaction with a contractor’s work.
