Working with a contractor is a great way to ensure renovations are done accurately and according to code. But how does someone find a good contractor? Here are five things to expect from a Vancouver home renovation contractor.

Accurate Assessments

A professional contractor should explain all costs and material expenses to you before they begin their work. Going over budget is something that can happen, but it should only be done after being communicated to the client.

Adherence to Budget & Schedule

Staying within the budget range is important. If a contractor is too cheap, they can cut corners and end up costing you thousands in the long run. But on the flip side, some contractors propose a price but end up going significantly over it due to various reasons.

A professional will know how to accurately assess the scope of work and stay within the budget.


A contractor should always be professional. This goes beyond just being on time, it shows in the way they treat their clients and workers. A good contractor will know how to handle any situation that comes along and make the client feel at ease during the entire project.


A contractor with years of experience can do the job correctly and much faster. Many homeowners may think a contractor with less experience will be cheaper, but that isn’t always the case.

With a less experienced contractor, the project may take more time, and may not be done thoroughly.

Permits and Insurance

While saying they are experienced is nice, it is always important to have proof. A contractor should have all their permits and licenses in order. They should also have insurance in case of any mistakes that are made during a project. It also shows they are a legitimate business.
