How Do You Choose the Right Home Remodeling Company?
Recently, we mentioned predictions of a surge in home remodeling activity in the next few months.
It’s possible you’re making plans for your own home renovation project. But how do you find a building contractor you can trust to do the job right?
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has some helpful advice on hiring a home remodeler or a building contractor. It comes in the form of a check list that includes the following items:
- Does the builder or remodeler have a permanent business location and a good reputation with local banks and suppliers?
- How long have they been in the building business? It usually takes three to five years to establish a financially sound business. Will they be around after the construction is complete to service any warranties?
- Will the builder/remodeler provide you with names of previous customers? Ask them if they would hire the builder/remodeler again.
- Have you seen the builder/remodelers work, both completed and in progress? Check for quality of workmanship and materials.
Those are excellent questions to ask any prospective building contractor. Take a look at the NAHB webpage linked above for the full checklist.
