Choosing a Home Remodeler: 5 Things to Consider
Remodeling is an exciting undertaking.
Done correctly, it will make your space feel more like home. It will keep things up-to-date and increase the value of your property.
Sounds like a win-win, right?
And it is. The first step, however, is choosing the right home remodeler. Here are five things to consider when deciding on your contractor:
More often than not, experience translates to quality. You want to make sure your contractor can provide seamless workmanship in the style you’re after. Whether you’re looking to improve a kitchen or bathroom, or your entire home, you should confirm the remodeler has everything they need to take on your project.
By choosing an experienced remodeler, this won’t be a problem. Some homeowner pro-tips: You’ll want to ask your remodeler questions, browse through their gallery of completed projects, and confirm they have the expertise needed to renovate your space. Be sure to do your due diligence before making a commitment.
From online reviews to word-of-mouth referrals, reputation is everything. Positive feedback indicates the remodeler’s customers are happy with their services, and that the company works with integrity.
So, do your research before committing to a contractor. Chances are you’re hoping to work with someone who employs a trustworthy crew and maintains a clean and tidy workspace—and investigating the contractor’s reputation will ensure you get what you want. Read the reviews of several home remodelers, ask for referrals, and commit to a solution you can trust.
3. License and Insurance
This goes without saying, but you need to make sure your remodeler is licensed to work in your state. This is especially important for homeowners who may sell their home in the future, as work completed by an unlicensed contractor is typically unrecognized in property transactions.
In addition, make sure the contractor has all the permits they need and the insurance required to safeguard your home investment. This includes both general liability and workers’ compensation insurance. Note: The right remodeler should walk you through what’s covered by their insurance and what’s covered by your own homeowner’s insurance during construction.
Communication is essential to any successful relationship—and the remodeler-homeowner relationship is no exception.
So, the moment you contact your contractor, pay close attention to the way they communicate. Do they respond to your questions in a timely fashion? Are they polite in the way they speak to you? Do they promise to keep you in the loop during the job—to inform you of any changes that may take place?
If so, you’ve likely found a contractor who speaks honestly, values transparency, and cares deeply about your working relationship. This means they will likely maintain an open dialogue with you during your home remodel.
Pricing. Scheduling. Turnaround time.
You may have found the perfect contractor for your home remodel. That said, before you sign on the dotted line, make sure your agreement is in order. The contract should be both detailed and easy to read, and outline everything from labor and materials fees, start and completion dates, proof of insurance, and more.
Put simply, a comprehensive, professional contract will bring homeowners peace of mind and keep all parties informed of project costs and timeframes during construction. A clear agreement is truly one of the best ways to guarantee a successful home renovation.
With these five factors in your arsenal, you’ll be on the right track to choosing a solid home remodeler. Please contact Romo Remodeling for more information about our own remodeling services, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
