I have a really hard time hiring contractors. Please give me the 411 on what things I should ask or go about hiring a contractor so that I don't get screwed.

Hi............first line up at least 3 and don't necessarily go with the cheapest.........how long they have been in business.........make sure they are licensed..........check them out in the Better Business Bureau...........ask them for references of their last 3 jobs..........will they be doing the work and not lumping it out to unknowns or disreputable "flash in the pans"............be sure to sign a contract...pay schedule...daily job clean-up ....and when the job will get completed......please let me know if you have any more particular questions or concerns

Thanks
