Are you located in my Area?
If you have searched few contractors names over the internet then it will be good to ask if they provide service in your area or not. As not ever contractor provide long distance services due travel time constraint. Being situated in your area, travel time will be decreased and hence better the customer service.

If your selected contractor is situated out of your area then you can ask him for the reference of another contractor in your area.
Are you specialized in my project?
Not all the contractors can be specialized in every type of house remodeling. Many contractors restrict the project they performed. Keep in mind that this is a good thing. Write down a short description of your project. Explain over the phone that what type of remodeling you want to have with your kitchen. If it involves removing of structural walls then ask your contractor whether he will be capable enough for relocating load bearing walls.
Will you complete my project on time?
