5 Tips That Will Help You Choose a Remodeling Contractor

Using Computer

Sifting through the endless number of remodeling contractors that are available to you can be a tough pill to swallow. And after all the searching, how do you know if you’ve really found the right one to help you remodel your home? The answer to how to choose a remodeling contractor isn’t so simple, but we’ve got a few tips to keep you on the right path to finding and hiring the ideal contractor for you and your next project.

  1. Talk to Your Friends and Neighbors

Start talking to your friends and neighbors and ask them for referrals for contractors. If you see a kitchen you love or a backyard you want, talk to the owner and see who helped them to design it or remodel it. These contractors are a good place to start your search. If you don’t know anyone that can refer you, do some online research and read online reviews to see what people have said about the quality of their work. You can always check the Better Business Bureau and your state’s attorney general’s office for complaints before making your pick.

  1. Interview at Least Three Candidates

Don’t just go with the person your best friend suggested. While they might end up being the best candidate, it’s always best to have something to compare to. Make sure you ask lots of questions to help you understand each candidate. You can then compare them based on their skillsets, quotes, and designs, and make an informed decision on which remodeling contractor is right for you.

  1. Don’t Go Cheap

Just because you want to save a buck or two doesn’t mean you should cheap out on a contractor. In all likelihood, the contractor providing the cheapest quote is likely to do a rushed job that is lower in quality. Remodeling costs can be high, but it is worth the extra money to get it done right.

  1. Double Check the Candidate

Just because the contractor passed your interview test, that doesn’t mean they’re the one you should choose. Double-check their references and check to see if they have the required licenses from state and local municipalities, along with certifications from any other professional associations. Also, check to see if their business in good standing if you haven’t already in your initial research.

  1. Review the Contract

Once you’ve decided on a contractor, you will want to review the contract and quote again. Make sure it is detailed and professional. You want to make sure it is a legal agreement that includes terms, payment, specifics about the scope of work, a site plan, and an express limited warranty.
