The right precautions can help you avoid a remodeling nightmare!

This Halloween, you want all your horror stories to be about supernatural monsters, not about your remodel! Luckily, there are a few steps you can take to avoid a remodeling nightmare. With the right precautions, you’ll be able to avoid the hassle and pitfalls of a poor remodeling job.

Choose the Right Contractor

Choosing the right contractor is essential. You want to work with a contractor who will treat your home as if it were their own. A contractor that does a poor job will leave a terrifying mess for you to fix up! We published a blog recently on how to choose the right contractor. To summarize:

  • Ask for referrals: A good contractor will have a good reputation. Read testimonials and reviews, and talk to people who have worked with the contractor before if possible.
  • Check out credentials: There are a few things all contractors should have, such as the right licenses and certifications and designations from professional associations.
  • Look at experience: A good contractor has several years of experience under their belt. They should be able to show you with a portfolio of previous projects so that you can see examples of their work. The more experience, the better the craft, the greater the industry knowledge and connections, and the better the relationships with other contractors in the community with whom you may need to be connected.
  • Secure your contract: Finally, make sure that the contract you sign is detailed with everything you expect from the project and provides you with protections.

Remodeling and the Importance of Communication

What’s one of the best ways to make sure that your project goes as planned? Communication! Don’t be afraid to talk to your designer about what you want. Even the smallest detail helps us to ensure that you end up with the kitchen or bathroom that you truly want. Even if you change your mind about something, be sure to tell us!
