The first step in any remodeling project is identifying a suitable contractor. There are numerous options available in the market, with different alternatives offering varying levels of quality. Some of the steps you can follow during this identification process include:
Asking your friends and loved ones to recommend a company they have previously used and were satisfied with can save you the time and energy required when starting from scratch. Asking for suggestions from someone whose opinion you trust is a good way to whittle down prospective candidates without spending hours online.
You can arrange a phone interview with all your prospects to gather additional information. Ensure that you ask relevant questions regarding your project. You can do a follow-up face-to-face interview with the contractors you like. The face-to-face section should only be scheduled with two to three finalists.
Request for Official Estimates
Asking for estimates will give you an idea of what to expect when it comes to the costs involved with a remodel. It’s worth noting that the cheapest estimate doesn’t always necessarily represent the best alternative, however, and one should always consider value for money at this stage.
