You’re finally ready to start that kitchen remodel that you’ve been dreaming of for years. It’s just as important to make sure you pick quality supplies and fixtures as it is the right contractor. Before you begin the demolition, make sure to ask these questions when choosing the right contractor:
How do you break down your bid? Asking this will give you a better understanding of where our money is going. You’ll be able to get an itemized breakdown of every cost to see what the bulk of your budget is going.
Are there extra costs outside of your quote? Be sure that you won’t get suckered into additional fees or add-ons without being aware of them. Asking will allow you to know upfront what you’ll be responsible for.
Who are your suppliers? Make sure that your contractor works with high quality products that offer guarantees and warranties.
Who will be in my home during the project? Depending on the size of the contracting company, you may have between one and five workers in your home every day. You’ll want to get to know your contracting team ahead of time so that you feel comfortable having them in your home, especially if you have children or pets.
How long will the project take? Time is of the essence, and making sure that you’re on the same page as your contractor as far as timelines go is very importance. Allow for some wiggle room with the timeline for the remodel, as unexpected issues usually arise.
Can you provide references? If the potential contractor wasn’t recommended to you by someone you trust, it’s perfectly acceptable to do a little reference work yourself. Also be sure that they are licensed and insured, as that’s the sign of any good and reputable contractor.
