You do not want to spend a lot of money fixing up the inside of the basement if you are going to have water coming in getting things moldy and destroying things. It is better to fix them first so that you do not have the problems with the water in the future.

Some of these things may need to be done by a contractor. So how do you choose one that can do the job right the first time around. Here are some tips for choosing a contractor.

* You know the saying ” you get what you pay for” , well if you are going only by the lowest price, then you might just get what you pay for. A job that is not done very well and using the products that might not hold up as well.

* Are they licensed and insured. Make sure that you see it.

* Do they have the experience and know how to do the things that you want them to do. Ask to see places that they have finished work like what you want them to do. Talk to the people that they have worked with before. In other words get references of those that they have done work for.

* Do not pay all of it up front. Most good contractors want some up front and as things are done in the project.

* You pay the subcontractors, that way you know that they got paid. You will not get stuck paying twice for the work. ( Subcontractors are people like plumbers etc that come in for that job only.)

* Look them up at the BBB to see if they have any complaints about them.

* How long have they been in business?

These are but a few of the things that you can ask and find out about to help you make the choice of the company that you want to go with to do the work for you.

If you choose to do some of the work yourself, let the pros do the pluming, electrical, stuff to do with the gas. They can be deadly if not done right.
