How to Prepare for a Meeting with a Tile Contractor - Part I

When you are a planning a home improvement project one of the most important steps in the process is that of finding reputable contractors to perform the work for you. 
It is not an easy process for some, particularly if you are unfamiliar with what is involved in the contractor's line of work. This is often true when it comes to discussing a tile installation project with a tile contractor.

Don't Hesitate To Ask Your Future Contractor All You Want
There are some very important questions you should ask a contractor when you meet with them to obtain an estimate for your tile installation project.
Be sure and get more than one estimate and do your best to make sure when you compare the estimates, you have enough information to compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. 
If a question arises after the appointment, do not hesitate to call the contractor for more information.

Follow This Guide Line and Be comfortable To Ask Anything Else You Want

1. Obtain a drawing of the area where you plan to have to tile installation.

2. Gather background information on each contractor you are planning to talk with. Visit their website, contact the Better Business Bureau or similar organization, and talk with anyone who has used the contractor.

3. Determine the time frame in which you would prefer to have the project done.
