How does bidding work?
As Andy has indicated, scope of work in writing, but rather than getting from the contractor, write one up to give to them, at least to the best of your ability.
Explain in writing, in detail what you want done, and a very important detail, is what timing you expect to have it done.
Timing effects price dramatically, you want that kitchen done in 4 days, or will you allow 2 weeks, completely different man loading.
And as mentioned, check insurance, gut feel (do you have a confident feeling), and check to see if they have a portfolio of former projects and a contact list so you can talk to former clients, very good evaluation method, any contractor not willing to allow contact with former clients I would stay away from, of course this would mean that you will have to fill out an evaluation on the projects completion.
You may want to put a pricing sheet together to, the more detailed the better.
When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
