Characteristics
   of a Good Contractor... 
The success of your building project will be largely determined by choosing the right contractor. Here are some important qualifications you should look for when hiring a contractor:

Construction and Technical Expertise
Look for a contractor who specializes in the type of project you are interested in. A contractor who is familiar with your type of project will understand important issues, such as the material specifications and the scheduling required to finish the job within your timetable.
A well-established contractor should also have an in-depth structural knowledge of the home in your community. The more familiar a contractor is with your style of home, the better equipped he is to deal with structural issues that may arise during construction. Also, he can give you a more reliable estimate than a contractor who is not familiar with your type of home.
A contractor should also be able to tell you what products and materials he would likely use for your project. He should also offer you several options when selecting products, materials, and techniques.

Customer Service and Communication
It is very important for a contractor to listen to, and understand your needs and wants. While discussing your project with a contractor, he should how enthusiasm for your ideas and suggest ways to make them work within your budget. He should also alleviate any concerns you may have about your project.
You will have questions and concerns during your project, and you will want to have them addressed as soon as possible. Communication is a key component in a successful customer/contractor relationship.
