Steps to Follow when Looking for a Home Re modeler
At times a homeowner requires a complete make-over of the kitchen and the bathroom. The home-owner may need to change or replace old or worn out appliances, tiles, cabinets, etc. It should not be a daunting task to get a reliable construction company to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. We look at the steps to follow when looking for a construction company to remodel your kitchen and bathroom.
Start by visiting different home. You may be wanting to remodel any of the two rooms but you have no idea where to start. You can visit some friends or family members especially those who have recently constructed new houses or have remodeled theirs. They can also give referrals of the construction company that did the kitchen or bathroom.
You will find various construction companies at home expos. These exhibitions also provide an opportunity to see several kitchen and bathroom models. Pick a few contractors from the expo and invite them to the house to give more ideas on what you need. Look out for home improvement seminars conducted in your locality by various construction companies. The companies provide ideas and styles to home owners so as to improve their homes.
Before you hire the construction company, conduct a search to know more about the company. Search the information from the company’s website and in social media platforms. Search for previous projects that the company has undertaken before. Review the feedback given by previous clients. Ensure the construction company has all the relevant licenses from the relevant authorities. Find out if the technicians employed to do the remodeling works are qualified or not. You do not want a construction company to bring losses to your precious home because they have hired unskilled technicians.
Come up with a list of contractors to invite to your home to assess the works and quote for the job. Do not invite several re-modelers as a big number will be time consuming as well as confusing when it comes to picking the right one. During the assessment, outline all your expectations to the company and provide all details of what you need. Best technician will offer advise on what you should do or use, and what should not.
After examining the quotes received from all contractors invited to quote, pick the one you feel is good for the remodeling job. Look at the details of the quotations such as warranty on materials used, warranty on appliances, to help decide pick the best contractor. Scrutinize the contract that the company has prepared and judge whether it’s fair and balanced. The agreement should be balanced, and not favoring or oppressing any party. Also ensure all important details are highlighted in the contract; time schedules, terms, and mode of payment, scope of work, etc.
Make amendments where need be, and allow the re-modeler to begin the work when the agreement is ready.
