General Contractor Checklist

Use this checklist to help identify the type of remodeling contractor best suited to you and your project:

  • Is the contractor licensed with the California State License Board (CSLB) as a General Contractor?  How long has the contractor been licensed?
  • Does the contractor have a permanent business location and a good reputation in your area? How long has he been in business?
  • Have you checked the Better Business Bureau to review the company’s track record within the community?
  • Have you verified that the contractor’s worker’s compensation and general liability insurance are valid and current?
  • Has the contractor completed projects like the one you are planning?
  • Will the contractor provide you with client references for projects both completed and in progress?
  • Will the contractor provide you with a complete and clearly written contract?
  • Will the contractor provide you with a written warranty upon completion?
  • Do you feel comfortable with the general contractor? Remember, you will be working closely with the contractor and crew from a couple to several months depending on the scope of work.
