If you have followed Perkins On Parkway for a while, you know that we went through a hellish renovation and are passionate about helping people avoid our mistakes. When you start to interview contractors, you want to have as much information as possible going into the initial conversation. Providing your own sketches, reference photos, etc. is going to be so helpful. Bring those to the initial meeting and help bring your vision to life. This will be super important if you are not working with an interior designer (I know most people don’t have this luxury… I know I didn’t!).

Here are 10 questions you should ask any contractor before you hire them for the job! Some of these will apply to trade jobs as well (like a plumber or a landscaper), but not all.

Are you planning to live in your home during your renovation? Add these questions!
