The most essential factor in the quality of construction is the experience of your contractor. A homeowner's goal is to work with a builder that has experience with ADU's and Additions and is aware of any potential problems. Price should not be the only factor when looking for a contractor - A solid track record, expertise in the field, and efficiency are all key points to look for.
Ask about the contractor's experience, as well as if they can provide references from previous clients. It's important to ask about their experience with the contractor from a primary source, and as they say “A picture is worth a thousand words”, so you should ask for pictures of the completed project. Another idea to make sure there are no significant red flags is to search for the contractor on the internet. Read any reviews you can discover about their company, and if you come across anything alarming, don't be afraid to discuss it with the contractor.
Additionally, if you intend to sell the home in the future, it's critical that the contractor you choose has a license. In order for potential buyers to feel as though the work has been conducted professionally or else it may not be up to code, any renovations must be done with permits and licensing.
Using CSLB, it is essential to verify that the contractor’s license is active, that there have been no disciplinary measures taken against them. Contractors should be backed by workers compensation insurance, and this can be checked by visiting the Contractors State License Board website. Always request a copy of the contractor's insurance certificate, and confirm that it is still valid. Just to be sure, it might be a good idea to contact the insurance directly.
