    "We wanted to create a lower level living space in our home, which included a family room and en-suite bedroom as well as having storage closets for easy access to seasonal items. It was very important to us to have the lower level continue the feel of the main floor, including drywall, color, and trim. We looked at three companies carefully and selected CWE Renovations. CWE owner Dan Nikitovic understood our budget and created a plan with a detailed expense projection that gave us an opportunity to enhance what we thought would fit our vision. Dan and his crew were outstanding from the beginning of our project to the final touch-ups to make the job perfect. From the early planning stage, through the adjustments that we asked for, and on to the end, Dan and his two lead carpenters were able to guide us in common sense approaches to the carpentry, HVAC, plumbing and electrical installations. Based on our experience, we plan to use CWE for a second project in the coming year. We have no regrets in choosing CWE Renovations and can highly recommend Dan and his company."

Frequently asked questions

  • It’s important that you verify their license is still in good standing. Also keep in mind that certain states or provinces don’t require licensing if the job is under a certain dollar amount.
  • You can find a list of your state’s licensing requirements on the HomeAdvisor website. Before you get to work with the pro, make sure their qualifications are current and acceptable to you.
  • It is always a good idea to get a copy of the pro’s insurance certificate for future records, and in case anything happens. This is a good way to feel more secure in your home project, and to weed out potential scammers.

HomeAdvisor makes it easy to connect with pros near you. You can read reviews, get quotes and book appointments all in one place.

Depending on the type of project, you may find subtle differences in the hiring process. Here’s a look at task-specific advice.

You can use HomeAdvisor to help evaluate a contractor’s qualifications. We put pros through a screening process, and award badges to high-performing contractors. You can find these badges on a pro’s HomeAdvisor profile, and sometimes, his or her website. 

Your research doesn’t stop here. Once you’ve found a few prospective companies, make an call to ask a few questions about work history, licensure and more:

  • Have you completed a job like this before?
  • Do you have a list of references I can contact?
  • When are you able to start the job?

In most cases, the responses you get to these three questions will give you a very good idea of the right pro for your project. If you have more than one front-runner, these additional questions can help you narrow it down. 

  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • What’s your permanent business address?
  • Are you licensed to work in my area?
  • When did you earn your business license?
  • How do you handle warranty service complaints?
  • Do you have worker’s compensation, property damage and personal liability insurance?

Any good contractor will answer these questions, and most will appreciate dealing with a client that takes such an active interest in finding good service. On the other hand, if a contractor gives you a hard time with these questions, you probably want to find someone else.
