Finding The Right ADU Contractors

Are you looking to build an ADU but are not sure how to find the right contractor for the job? This simple guide can help. Read on to learn how to find the right ADU contractors for your needs.

Licensed And Insured

No matter who you work with, they should always be able to prove that they are fully licensed and insured. That way, you know they went through the correct training and you won’t be liable for any injuries. The last thing you want is for someone inexperienced to get hurt on the job and you have to foot the bill.

Specialize In ADUs

The contractor you choose to build your unit should have experience building ADUs. It is a large-scale job that requires a level of expertise not everyone will have. If you for some reason cannot find an ADU contractor in your area, opt for someone who has experience building houses since ADUs are smaller versions. They won’t be as knowledgeable but will be better than someone who has no experience working on such a large-scale project.

Has Subcontractors

Your contractor should have a network of subcontractors ready to help make your build go smoothly. There are a lot of aspects that go into developing an ADU. No one is capable of doing everything themselves. If your contractor says that they can, they are lying and you should get a new one.

Has Fair Pricing

Financing an ADU is not an easy endeavor. Make sure you’re not losing money to an overly expensive contractor. Also, make sure you don’t choose the contractor with the outrageously low bid. Oftentimes they end up costing you more money due to inexperience, hidden fees, or wasted time.

Timely And Responsive

Don’t work with someone who doesn’t communicate well with you. ADUs are projects that take months to complete. You don’t want to work with someone who never gets back to you and makes the project last longer than it needs to. Hence, why looking at reviews is important. They will let you know whether or not the contractor got the job done in a timely manner in the past and if they were easy to work with.
