Question: I want to add a family room addition on the back of my house this summer. When should I select a contractor?
Answer: I believe it is best to select your contractor at least three to six months before you plan to start your project. Keep in mind you might want to interview several contractors before you make a selection. Then, you need to develop your designs and make your product selections. Next, it takes time to get permit approval from your local building department. In addition, the project needs to fit into the contractor’s schedule. Think about how complicated your project is and how quickly you can make all the required decisions. Then, allow time for this so that you can complete this at the speed you feel comfortable with. Personally, I would rather have too much time than feel rushed.
