The success of any home improvement project largely depends on the performance of your chosen contractor. Whether you’re looking to remodel a kitchen or install new siding, you should properly evaluate the experience and knowledge of your potential contractor. PJ Sullivan Construction, one of the premier design-build companies in the Tri-State area, shares some tips on choosing the best company to handle your home improvement needs.
1. Get Recommendations
Do you have neighbors or friends and family residing in or around your city who recently had improvements done to their homes? Were they happy with their contractor, and did the work meet their expected standards? If so, you might want to look into hiring the same contractor for your own upgrade–homeowners who are happy with their home improvement investments will typically recommend their contractors to others.
2. Do Your Research
It’s always a good idea to list down potential whole-home or kitchen remodeling companies you’d like to consider for your remodeling requirements, then do a little bit research online. Check for things such as how long they have been in business, their ratings with industry agencies such as Better Business Bureau (BBB) and whether they have positive customer reviews. Also take the precaution of checking with your local contracting office for complaints filed against your shortlisted contractors.
3. Get in Touch
There’s a reason why reputable companies encourage customers to call them. It’s the first step in building a relationship, which is important if you eventually decide to hire them. During a phone interview, you can ask project-related questions, such as:
Do they handle both small and big projects?
Are they willing to provide industry and customer references?
What brands do they carry and which materials do they use?
Do they work with subcontractors?
If you feel that a contractor is trustworthy and sincere, then you should consider scheduling an in-home consultation. A good contractor will offer this service for free. This gives you the opportunity to meet with their representative face-to-face and discuss your home improvement goals further.
