Hiring a home remodeling company can be complicated. Remodeling a home is an important financial decision and should be made after carefully weighing your options. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right company.
- Ask for referrals. Before you do any meetings with any companies, ask people you trust about the businesses they’ve used. Friends, family, co-workers — anyone whose opinion you trust will help guide you down the right path. Be sure to take note of all the experiences that those you talked to have had, both positive and negative.
- Do your research. The Internet has become a boon for information on any and all subjects, including home remodeling. Do a little online digging on the companies you have preliminarily selected. See what certifications they have, what online reviews they’ve garnered, and what types of awards they’ve earned.
- Conduct interviews. After gathering your word-of-mouth and online intelligence, you should then conduct face-to-face (or at the very least, phone-to-phone) interviews with the potential companies. Make sure you come armed with specific questions about your project. It is important to see if the company you choose has actually done the type of work you’re looking for and can answer questions about specific jobs they have done.
- Check their references. Once you’ve narrowed down your candidates, ask them to supply you with a list of references that you can check. This should be past clients or industry workers who have knowledge of the company. You want to do your due diligence and check what these references have to say about them.
