What to Look for in a Kitchen Remodeling Company
One of they key components to having a positive experience with a kitchen remodeling project is to find the right contractor to do the work.
In most cases, this involves finding a kitchen remodeling contractor that you can comfortably communicate with throughout the entire process.
Here are some tips to follow when searching for a kitchen remodeling company:
Do your research
Once you have the names of a few companies that do kitchen remodeling in your area, start by verifying their workmanship and reputation. For starters, check with the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List or the consumer protection agency to confirm if there have been any complaints filed against them.
One easy way to start your search for a kitchen remodeling company is to ask for referrals from family members, friends or neighbors who have recently had a kitchen remodeling project done in their home. Seek information and suggestions from local building inspectors regarding remodeling companies they know that consistently adhere to code regulations. Additionally, a local building supply company also can direct you to a reliable, experienced kitchen remodeling contractor.
Make some phone calls
Call all of the companies you have selected as official contenders for your kitchen remodeling project. Ask each one for a client list so you can check with previous customers regarding their satisfaction with that company. Request photos of some of the kitchen remodels they have completed. You should also discuss your ideas with them to see how comfortable you think you would be working with this company.
Ensure the company is appropriately licensed
Before hiring a kitchen remodeling company, it is vital to make sure they are licensed to work in your area. The building codes for kitchen remodeling companies in Phoenix and Scottsdale, for instance, differ from the codes in other areas of Arizona. You must be sure the company you deal with has a local address, appropriate licenses and a stellar reputation.
Trust your instincts
If you have talked with several kitchen remodeling contractors and have multiple estimates, you have a big decision to make. While it might be tempting to go with the most affordable option, it is important to consider the other variables that will play a part in your project. Choose the kitchen remodeling company that understands your needs, can address your concerns, be a trusted advisor to you if something goes wrong, and will work with you side-by-side.
