Working with a Contractor, Part 1

  • Boston Building Resources 100 Terrace Street Boston, MA, 02120 United States (map)

Working with a Contractor is a two-part workshop. The registration fee includes both parts.

Don’t let your home improvement project become a horror story. This workshop will help you avoid common pitfalls so that the end result of your project is in line with your expectations for both quality and budget. In Part 1, you will learn about how to define your own expectations for the work you need and how to find, evaluate, and choose a contractor. In Part 2, we will discuss written contracts, change orders, schedules, budget, and requirements such as licensing, permits, zoning, inspections, and insurance. There will be plenty of time for discussion. Participants must enroll in both Parts 1 and 2.

Paul Kiefer has more than 20 years’ experience as a woodworking contractor.
