I've been working on some new resources for homeowners, and have been thinking about a basic checklist for homeowners to follow during the process.
To me these are the essential parts of the hiring process for homeowners. Not doing these things can mean disastrous results and a frustrating process. Everyone has heard horror stories about contractor fraud, and to avoid it, it's very important for homeowners to take the time to consider a checklist like this.
Can anyone think of anything I'm missing? Or is this a good bare basics summary of essentials that all homeowners need to consider?
