How to Choose a Trustworthy

General Contractor With Integrity

At Tri-City Builders, we understand the importance of finding a trustworthy partner for your home improvement and remodeling projects. The decision to hire a contractor goes beyond skill and price—it's about finding someone you can rely on, someone who values integrity and professionalism.

Here are key insights that we encourage our customers to consider when selecting the right contractor for their needs:

1. Reputation and Experience

First impressions matter. When choosing a contractor, look for a solid reputation backed by years of experience. Ask for referrals from family, friends, and other in your network who have had positive experiences with contractors. When Googling "General Contractors" look at online reviews and testimonials for valuable insights into a contractor's track record. An established General Contractor with a strong reputation is more likely to deliver quality work, on time, and within budget.

2. Licensing and Insurance

Verify that each contractor holds General Liability and WSIB (Workplace Safety Insurance Board) coverage. This protects both you as the homeowner and the General Contractor in case of accidents or damages to yourself, family, guests, workers, and property during the project. Before hiring a General Contractor ensure to request a copy of their General Liability Insurance coverage, and WSIB Clearance Certificate. (Using this link: you can search WSIB's directory to ensure a General Contractors WSIB coverage is active.)

3. Transparent Communication

Communication is key to any project; big or small. A trustworthy contractor will listen to your ideas, address your concerns, and provide clear explanations throughout the process. You want a General Contractor who is accessible and responsive to your calls or emails. Look for a contractor who communicates openly about project timelines, costs, and any potential challenges. They're not afraid to tell you what you need to know, even if it's not what you want to hear.

4. Detailed Contracts and Estimates

Never settle for verbal agreements. A reputable General Contractor will dot their "i's" and cross their "t's." Never under any circumstances should a contractor start a project without first having a detailed written contract outlining all aspects of the project, including scope of work, materials to be used, payment schedule, and timelines. Review the contract carefully and ask questions about anything that is unclear. Similarly, ensure that the estimate is thorough and transparent, with no hidden costs.

5. Quality of Workmanship

Ask for past customer references, ideally within the last 3-6 months, to gauge the quality of a General Contractors recent work. A true professional will take have meticulous attention to detail. Visit completed job sites if possible or request photos of completed work that is similar to what you envision for your own project.

6. Professionalism and Integrity

Choose a contractor who conducts themselves with professionalism and integrity. This includes showing up on time, respecting your property, and treating subcontractors and workers fairly. A contractor who values integrity will prioritize your satisfaction and strive to deliver results that exceed your expectations.

7. Flexibility and Problem-Solving Skills

Home improvement projects rarely go exactly according to plan. Unexpected challenges can and will happen. Look for a General Contractor who demonstrates flexibility and problem-solving skills when faced with issues. An experienced General Contractor will offer creative solutions and adapt to changing circumstances when these challenges inevitably come up.

8. Warranty and Follow-Up

Your General Contractor must stand behind their work. Ask about warranties offered on materials and workmanship. The industry standard is a 1 year warranty on materials and workmanship. Additionally, confirm that the contractor provides a deficiency walkthrough and post-project follow-up to address any concerns that may come up after the project is finished.

Final Thoughts

Selecting a trustworthy general contractor with integrity is essential for the success of your home improvement project. By prioritizing reputation, communication, transparency, and professionalism, you can make better decisions and build lasting relationships with contractors they can trust.
