The name of the site implies questions geared towards DIYers and contractors, but I think there is a lot of potential for good questions related to hiring and working with contractors?


  • What is a good source to find reliable contractors?
  • If I am a novice for a given trade (electrician, plumber, concrete) how do I vet contractors when hiring them?

What do you think?

I say on-topic. Working with contractors is a big part of home improvement for all but the most die-hard DIY-ers.


I think it's OK as long as they are general and aren't too localized (e.g. "Anybody know of any good electricians in Mytown, Ohio?")


Gets my vote. Working with others (and knowing where others can help, when you might least expect it!) is as important a skill as doing stuff yourself.
