In today’s digital age, it is easier than ever to vet your home remodeling company prior to signing a contract. From Yelp and Angie’s List to Facebook Groups and Twitter, real-time information about a company’s practices and past projects is just a few clicks away. However, no matter how much research you do ahead of time, you still run the risk of a less-than-stellar experience. When you choose the wrong restaurant or salon, the results are temporary, but when you choose the wrong home remodeling company, the consequences are often felt for years to come. Here are a few warning signs you should never ignore.
- You Can Never Get In Touch With Them
If you’re leaving emails and voicemails every day with no answer, it’s time to call it quits. How can you trust a company to be organized and do their best work when they can’t even return a phone call?
- They Confuse Important Details About Your Project
If your home remodeler keeps referring to your new home office when you’ve hired them to redo your kitchen, that’s a clear sign of an overworked and under-organized builder. If they are making mistakes to your face, you can bet they’re making them where you can’t see.
- They Can Not or Will Not Provide You With Accreditations
Accreditations are proof that a remodeling company is current with the most recent developments in home building, and should be available to anyone. A remodeler who changes the subject when asked about their recent certificates has something to hide.
