Top 3 Questions to Ask Your Residential Remodeling Contractor

Choosing a residential remodeling contractor is a big step. Whether you are undertaking extensive home renovations, a bathroom remodeling project, or custom millwork additions, finding the right professional has the potential to make a huge difference in your enjoyment of the finished project. It can also save you quite a bit of time and money.

There are three questions to ask your remodeling contractor.

  1. Are you an industry insider? An insider has formed working relationships with a broad range of suppliers, contractors and other professionals. This benefits you because it results in favorable material pricing, accurate estimating and realistic scheduling of your project.
  2. Do I need a permit? With the exception of a few handyman-type jobs, the majority of home renovations may need one or more permits. A seasoned remodeling contractor knows this and should have a process in place, which ensures that permits are pulled and work is scheduled with inspections factored into the flow of the labor.
  3. How long have you been in business? Although everyone has to start sometime, you do not want your kitchen-remodeling project to be a remodeling specialist’s first job. The longer a company has been in business, the better its professional reputation is likely to be. A company that does not pay its bills, does shoddy work or fails to finish on budget and on time is unlikely to stay in business for more than a couple of years. Look for a time frame that is measured in decades.
