You must get on with
your remodeling contractor
Personalities are very important, particularly when undertaking long remodeling
projects, but so too is the remodelling contractor’s expertise.
It’s important that you have the best remodeling contractor for your money so be
certain to ask job specific questions as well. You should leave the building contractor in no doubt and be very
clear about what you want to achieve for the remodeling project. If the remodelling contractor doesn't get a
crystal clear picture of the job's scope, you only have yourself to blame.
A good repairing remodeling contractor knows the work !
However, a good repairing and remodeling contractor knows the work that needs to be done
and can handle all of the small details necessary to get the job finished. But that's not all it takes to make a
good remodeling contractor a great one.
In addition to project knowledge or expertise in a specialized field if that's the remodeling contractor that's
needed, it's also important that a contractor hired is one who, you the homeowner, can communicate with easily.
This is especially so for those of you who are undertaking large jobs such as building a new home or remodeling or
adding on to an old one.
To help you ferret out the best building or remodeling contractors to mesh with your personality, here are some
questions to ask.These especially apply to long-term jobs such as home construction or additions:
· Will you personally supervise the job directly?
· Is there a phone number I can contact you with questions I may have ?
· How often can I tour the jobsite to see progress?
· Do you personally responsible for supervising the selection of subcontractors?
· If you won't be on the job yourself, who is the superintendent that will oversee the work and what is his
· Can I meet this person?
If you're uncomfortable asking a building or remodeling contractor questions or
you get a bad feeling or simply don't like the person, that's not the contractor to hire.
If the contractor answers frankly and takes the time to explain the process and you feel good about the answers,
you've probably found the man for the job.
But remember, checking out the contractor is vitally important. Don’t forget - check into the
remodeling contractor's licensing, work history, insurance, past recommendations and so
on. If things don't check out, another contractor might be worth looking for.
Don't be discouraged if it takes you several interviews to find the right remodeling
contractor for your job. If you're making a big investment, the work on the front end will pay off on
the back as questions and concerns are addressed in a professional and timely manner. If this isn't the kind of
service you expect to receive, you haven't found the right company to deal with.
