Receive Several Bids
Just like you price check a product online or at a store for the best deal, you’ll want to receive several bids from different contractors. It’s likely that a more-experienced contractor will charge more while a new contractor will be cheaper. You’ll have to decide if cost is worth the experience or if getting the best deal is the driving factor.
Make Your Decision Beyond the Numbers
After getting several bids from different contractors, eliminate any contractors who you did not feel comfortable around. Your construction contractor will be building or remodeling your home, which means you need to feel 100% comfortable with their personality, ethics, and decision-making process.

That’s why Mickey Kicklighter, your construction attorney, advises you to get referrals from people you trust.
