Beginning any remodel on your home can be an equally exciting and nerve-wracking adventure. The kitchen is the heart of your home and it is important to find the best person for the job. Before you wade through a sea of contractors, consider some of the following tips for finding the right contractor for you.
There are a few key “pitches” some contractors might try to get you into when you meet with them. Whenever you are meeting with a contractor try to avoid contractors that push certain products or brands- make sure they let you know the pros and cons of each in relation to your project and budgets. Meeting with a contractor should be an educational experience where you explore a variety of options. Keep an eye out for informational panels, “comparison walls” of different kinds of products and portfolio so you know they are well rounded.
Check Out Their Staff
Your kitchen is one of the most important and high traffic areas of your home, any remodeling was done to it needs to be carefully considered. Remodeling the kitchen and installing cabinets and counters can be like an art form, so you want to make sure the artist has good assistants on hand. Expertise and experience of the staff are the most important factors when it comes to achieving a great design. Keep a look out for Accreditations from national organizations, employee background and education, testimonials, and certificates of training.
Depending on your desires for your kitchen remodel, choosing a regular contractor might be reasonable; however, if you are seeking specific or specialized services it is a good idea to assess your expectation at the door. Do you want a simplistic comforting design? Do you want sleek and modern? Be firm when describing your desires to any contractor and let them know your clear expectations. Some good questions to ask about expectations are the following:
Will you order everything needed to finish the project?
How long do you anticipate the project taking?
Are you hiring additional subcontractors yourself?
Remember that this is your kitchen and your remodel, when you are clear about your vision, the likelihood of you being satisfied with the final product will be much higher.
