Finding a contractor
The best option is to ask someone that has had work done before. Look in the local yellow pages.

This will also help other people out in your town like the lumber yard where they will be getting all the supplies from.

Another good idea is to make sure they all have their own insurance just in case they get hurt you will not be the one shelling out money for doctors bills.
