When you're qualifying potential contractors for your job, it's important to express your goals with confidence and allow yourself ample time to evaluate each one. Do not forget, though, that this is also the contractor's time to qualify you.

Give the contractor the same patience that you desire from him. If a contracting professional senses that an owner does not fully understand the solutions he has suggested or has somehow developed unrealistic expectations, he may choose not to bid on the project. Most contractors want to avoid the unpleasant experience or bad referrals that could result from working on a job for an owner with misconceptions.

Be an engaged researcher and you'll assure the contractor that you want the best from this project for both of you. This can only lead to a happy ending.
