After interviewing the contractors who may be a good fit for your project and before hiring one for the job you may want to consider doing a background check.  This applies for all contractors – even those who you may find from a referral service that does background checks. The reason is simple – you are handing over tens or maybe even hundreds of thousands of dollars to this person – isnt it worth a few hundred dollars to double and even triple check that they are the kind of person that you want to do business with?

Fortunately online services like http://www.intelius.com/ are available that provide remodeling contractor background checks.

Also check with the local or state remodeling contractor licensing board who can tell you if the status of the contractor’s licence and certification – if required.
