Top 7 Questions To Ask When Hiring a Contractor

Hiring Tip #4: Will a Foreman Be Present On Site?
The truth is the contractor is often not on the job site daily doing the grunt work. Most contractors are usually out looking for new jobs and working on bids for upcoming projects.
Find out if the contractor will have a foreman on the site, and if possible check out another job the foreman and his crew are working on. That way you can see whether the project is running smoothly and the kind of work they do.
This also will indicate to the contractor that you’re a savvy homeowner who will be keeping an eye on the project, so they may provide the best crew they have to prevent problems. The way the foreman runs his crew will also give you an idea of what to expect when the task is completed.
