Frequently Asked
Questions About Renovation Contractors

What is the process of finding a contractor with Smart Reno?2022-03-09T12:34:24-05:00

The process of finding a contractor can be daunting, but Smart Reno makes it easy!

The first step is to submit your renovation project via our website. The more detailed your description, the easier it will be for us to match you with a Contractor. If you’re curious about the price, use our Renovation Cost Estimator to help you evaluate the cost of your upcoming renovation project.

Next, our Smart Match technology matches your project with up to five Contractors in your area who specialize in the type of renovation you’re looking for. Contractors will set up a home visit to gather more information before sending you a quote. These quotes are free and you’re under no obligation to move forward with a Contractor once they’ve given you an estimate.

Finally, compare quotes between Contractors and choose the best fit. Once you confirm the project’s details and sign a contract with the contractor, your renovation can begin!

Should contractors be certified or licenced?2022-03-09T12:33:33-05:00

While some contractors in Canada are not required to be certified or have a licence, all Smart Reno Contractors are licenced and verified. Having a licence to practice keeps your home contractor accountable to the safety and competency standards of their professional regulatory organization. 

How do I choose a renovation contractor for my project?2022-03-09T12:32:43-05:00

Start out by obtaining quotes from local contractors. With Smart Reno’s renovation project planning tool, you will receive up to five free quotes when you share the details of your planned home renovation. Narrow down your list of contractors by asking to see previous similar projects they have completed. If you like the customer testimonials and the look of the final renovations, put the contractor on your shortlist and ask them questions about their business practices, licensure and professional history before signing a contract. You can read more about the specific questions to ask up front here, as well as the five key criteria Smart Reno requires all of our contractors to meet.

Why should I hire a contractor?2022-03-09T12:31:25-05:00

Sure, you could go the DIY route when you need work done on your home, but the truth is, it’s almost always better to hire a professional contractor to handle a construction project. Not only do they possess the skills and deep knowledge about things like building codes and structural integrity, but they have the necessary people, tools and materials to get the job done right and often, more quickly. Further, certain work, such as plumbing and electrical, should be performed by licensed professionals. 

A qualified, accredited, professional contractor, like the ones you’ll find with Smart Reno, can take care of the required permits your project might need — some may even provide a warranty on the work. That way, you can have peace of mind that the job was done right the first time around, and that you’re protected if anything goes wrong. How priceless is that?
