Knowing the Main Con’’s workday and their employees workday is something that’s very useful for a number of reasons. In addition to the above, you would want to ask:

  5. Who can I call in case of an emergency?

#2 How Do You Handle Change Orders?

It’s critical that your contractor assures you that he won’t spend a penny over your agreed- upon budget without first gaining your approval — and if you hire him, this should also be specified in your contract.

#3 How Does Your Job Scheduling Work?
