How to choose a kitchen or bath remodeler
If you’re considering a kitchen or bath remodel, it’s important to select the right contractor. Not all contractors are created equal, so it’s important to do your research and find one that is reputable and qualified. Here are some tips on how to choose a kitchen or bath remodeler.
1. Look for remodelers with a good reputation in your area. There are a number of ways to research the reputation of potential remodelers. Talk to friends, family, and neighbors who have had recent remodeling work done. Ask them if they were happy with their experience and if they would recommend the contractor. You can also check online review sites such as Yelp or Angie’s List.
2. Make sure the remodeler is licensed and insured. This is important for your protection in case something goes wrong during the remodeling process. Ask to see proof of insurance and make sure the coverage is adequate. You should also verify that the contractor is licensed to do business in your state.
3. Get written estimates from several contractors. When you’ve narrowed down your list of potential remodelers, get written estimates from each one. Be sure to provide the same set of specifications to each contractor so you can compare apples to apples. Pay attention to the details of each estimate and make sure there are no hidden costs.
4. Ask plenty of questions. Before you make your final selection, be sure to ask plenty of questions. Find out how long the contractor has been in business, what type of warranty they offer, and how they will handle any unforeseen problems that may come up.
5. Check references. Finally, don’t forget to check references. Ask the contractors for a list of recent clients and give them a call. Make sure to ask about their overall experience with the contractor and if they would recommend them to others.
6. Schedule consultations with several remodelers.
After doing your research, it’s time to schedule consultations with the remodelers you’re considering. This is your chance to ask more questions and get a feel for their personality. Pay attention to how they communicate and whether they seem like they would be easy to work with.
7. Get everything in writing. Once you’ve selected your contractor, be sure to get everything in writing. This includes the scope of work, start and completion dates, payment schedule, and any other important details. Having everything in writing will help protect you if there are any problems down the road.
