4 Steps to Securing a Quality Remodeling Contractor

A remodel can give your home a fresh new look. If your space is hopelessly outdated and you think it’s finally time for an upgrade, the first step you’ll have to take is find a remodeler you can trust. Here’s how:

Plan

What do you want out of that remodel? Would you like to have a new look, wider space or better flow of traffic inside? If you have a specific architectural detail you want to add to or wish to remove from the property, note those ideas and plans down. This should help you find contractors who specialize in the kind of remodeling work you have in mind, says U.S. News.

Research

Go online and do your research; you may also decide to ask around for assistance and recommendations. Either of these methods should net you a decent list of prospective remodeling contractors in your area. Never try to attempt to hire a contractor without knowing who they are or what their background is. If you get the wrong hire, that’s a surefire way to a lot of stress and heartache.

Ask

Once you have a list of contractors in your hand, it is time to start the round of interviews. It would be handy to have a list of questions that ask about the essentials. That way, you’ll be able to cover important ground. How much experience do they have? Years or even decades of experience mean they’re credible and have the right resources in place. Do they have experience working on the kind of remodel you want? How much do they charge? Is the company’s remodeler bonded, licensed and insured? Know before you take one on.

Sign

Have a detailed contract drawn up. Put in everything important—from start and completion dates to whether they’ll take out the trash or not at the end of the day. It will serve as a handy reference to both you and the remodeling company throughout the project.
