Home remodeling can help you achieve the home of your dreams, help you sell property, or entice renters to lease. No matter the reason you’ve chosen to renovate or which spaces you’re updating, the success of your renovation hinges upon choosing the right contractor. When selecting a remodeler, it’s important to research and get quotes from as many reputable contractors in your area as possible. This will help you compare prices and gauge which remodeling company you connect with best for your project. Keep in mind, however, that the lowest price doesn’t always mean the best quality.
To help you choose the right contractor for your project, follow these tips from Quality DesignWorks. Contact us for answers to any specific questions or to request a quote.
Review Their Credentials
You don’t want just anyone with a hammer and saw hacking aimlessly away in your home. Before even reaching out to a home remodeler, check out their websites and do an Internet search to review their credentials. A well-reputed company should have their credentials easily accessible on their company website. At Quality DesignWorks, our team consists of a certified kitchen and bathroom designer and expert remodelers who can handle everything from electricity to plumbing, carpentry to masonry. That way, you get the brains and the bronze. We’re also bonded and insured.
Check Out Reviews
It’s one thing to have a company tell you that they’re great at something, and another to read reviews from actual customers. Most companies will have some testimonials on their website, and you can also check out online reviews. While the occasional bad review shouldn’t be a cause for alarm, keep a lookout for trends that may point to red flags. We’re proud of the work we do and love the things our clients have to say about us. We invite all potential customers to check out our reviews and reach out to us if they would like additional references.
Meet Face To Face
Once you’ve selected some top contenders based on available online information, it’s time to meet them in person. Come ready to ask questions about their approach to home renovation, what they can and can’t do, if they source out any work to other contractors, such as plumbing or electrical, and ask them about products they have access to through their relationships with manufacturers and wholesalers. You want to make sure that the remodeling company you hire is up to your standards and will promote a good working relationship.
Inspect Their Previous Work
While you won’t be able to go into clients’ homes or businesses, most contractors will have a portfolio of past work that they can share with you. Inspect this with a critical eye. You want to look for similarities between past projects and your own, and don’t be afraid to ask questions or have the contractor explain details to you. Whether it’s closet remodeling or a completely new bathroom design, we have the expertise to make your vision a reality. Check out our project gallery and contact us with any questions!
