How to Choose the Right Home Remodeler for the Job

Jul 11, 2008
Making major significant changes to your home is a big decision and you have to get the most value of your investment. This means choosing the best, experienced, and reputable builder. Your home is too important to entrust to anyone but a professional home builder who can save you time by doing the job right the first time, ensure that the designs are accurately translated, provide the best materials within your budget, and guarantee the quality of the work with a warranty.

Before meeting with a remodeler, it is a good idea to do the following:

* Develop an idea of what you want to do. Look at magazines and collect pictures of what you like. The more clearly you can envision the project and describe it on paper, the more likely you are to convey a clear image of your project to a professional remodeler.

* Think about patterns, furniture placement, colors, lighting, and how you want to use the remodeled space.

* Figure out how much you want to invest on the remodeling job.

Fortunately, there are many reputable builders around. But before you enter into a legal agreement with anyone, you should do everything possible to ensure that you are making the right decision. One important factor in decision-making is to check a remodeler's references. Ask for the names and phone numbers of current and former customers; then take the time to interview them (preferably in their homes so that you can take a look at the remodeler's work). Another is you should talk to independent trade contractors, building materials suppliers, architects, engineers, home inspectors, and local lenders. In the interview process with the remodeler, review the contract, warranty and warranty standards that the builder provides. Note the amount of detail provided. The same attention to detail usually flows through the construction of the home. You should also confirm insurance and licensing. Select the remodeler with a track record of a variety of excellent projects and plenty of experience with your type of project. Remember, low price alone does not ensure a successful remodeling experience. Also, check if the remodeler belongs to a home builders association or other professional groups.

If you finally decided on a remodeler, ask yourself if you are confident that this company will do the work according to your plans, budget, and specifications. The quality of a remodeling project is mostly determined by the skill of the remodeler. Remodelers should be frequent in communicating with their clients during the project. Also, you should choose the remodeler whom you feel comfortable working with. It is essential to set a timetable in choosing the right remodeler and to make the final decision once the perfect match is found.

Remodeling adds beauty, space and equity to your homes. Homes should be well designed and well constructed to meet the owner's lifestyle. Design and function are of prime importance and a professional remodeling contractor will see to it that your needs are met. So be sure to hire a licensed professional remodeler.
