Remodeling your home is easier said than done. There is expense involved, some inconvenience involved in the construction process, and then, there are the choices.
It really is important to do your homework when it comes to choosing the right company to do work on your home. Additionally, you need to do your own research on the choices that are available.
There are many tools available to you when it comes to choosing the right company to work with. And who’s right for your neighbors’ homes isn’t necessarily right for your home. It is important to get referrals, but it is also important to have a good comfort level with the company you choose. These people are going to be doing work on your most important investment (your home) so you want to have a good working relationship.
Questions to have ready are:
- Who do I contact if there is a challenge with the job?
- If you have had challenges with jobs, how were they resolved? May I speak to them?
- What homes have you worked on in my neighborhood?
- How long, from start to finish, will it take to do the job?
- What’s your BBB rating?
Also, prior to meeting with a prospective company, get an idea of what you are looking to do. And use the Internet to your advantage. Research the products you are interested in. If the company you like can’t get them, find out why - or have them find out a way to get those products. You want what you want, and you shouldn’t have to settle. If you truly can’t live without something, then there is most certainly a way to get it.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you don’t understand something. This is a business relationship and of course, you want to treat the remodeling company with respect, but you also want to protect yourself. Get anything important in writing, including the contract, a change notice, a receipt, etc.
