    2. Check for outstanding complaints if any
    3. Check the contractors legal status, license, etc.
    4. Check insurance coverages for worker injuries that might happen on your site
    5. Check past performances and ask for couple of references
  3. Coordinating Between Contractors: Proper building construction scheduling saves a lot of time and money.
