We are about to undertake a fairly large remodeling project (2nd story room addition). You hear about so many horror stories involving contractors. We have a list of contractors we like to talk to. We'd like to avoid being one of these stories! What are some red flags to watch out for? What are some of the key questions to ask a prospective contractor?
I'm new to Bridgeport and looking for contractors for a sunroom project. What are a few general rules you would recommend for someone narrowing down a list of potential bids?

I live in a 1998 built manufactored home. We are doing some upgrades and are considering adding a small room onto the house. Is it possible?
Our Texas home has a tile roof and I've noticed some wear-and-tear recently. I'm sure some roof repair is in order, but I'm wondering what kind of repairs I can do myself and what I should hire a contractor to work on. Isn't walking on tile supposed to be dangerous?
I'm planning a kitchen remodeling project over the winter months. I've heard horror stories about homeowners hiring the wrong remodeling contractor--so many that's it's a source of tension. Is there any advice you can give us about evaluating a potential remodeling contractor before we give him our business?
I heard that you should require that your contractor carry general liability insurance during your remodels. We have comprehensive home insurance and I wonder if that's enough. If not, what do I ask the contractor and what proof should I look at to make sure?
The exterior of my house needs painting and I know I can't do the work myself. However, my neighbors recently got burned by a painting contractor who did shoddy work and refused to fix the problems. How can I be sure I'm choosing a reliable contractor so this doesn't happen to me?
