Home remodeling has been on the rise over the past few years, especially as more people are spending more time at home. According to a survey conducted by Home Advisor, 87% of respondents said they spent more time at home in 2020. Additionally, 41% of participants said they performed home improvements to make their homes fit their lifestyles.
If you’re considering a renovation, you already understand the benefits of undertaking such a project. But for whole home remodels, you’ll likely need professional help. Consider asking these questions when meeting with your contractor to determine the best remodeling company for your needs.
Do You Specialize in My Type of Project?
When you are considering whole home remodels, you’ll want to make sure your specific project is something in which the contractor specializes. While talking to the contractor, you want to make sure they are interested in working on your project. You also want them to have access to the equipment they will need to complete whole home remodels. Ask to see their portfolio and about their experience with whole home remodels to get a feel for their level of expertise.
Can You Meet My Timeline?
Whole home remodels can be expansive, but that doesn’t mean they should go on indefinitely. Make sure the contractor can meet the timeframe that you have in mind. While a good contractor will not be able to give you a hard and fast timeframe because of many factors, they should be able to give you an estimate. There are no guarantees, especially in regard to supply chain issues, but you’ll want to ensure your timeline is realistic and that your contractor feels they can deliver.
Do I Live in Your Servicing Area?
Some contractors may have limits on the distance they will travel to complete a job. Ask about whether they limit their service area and assess whether you’re within those limits. Being within a specific distance of the contractor ensures faster response time when there is an emergency. It also means that they may be able to provide better customer service.
Is My Budget Realistic for This Project?
If you have a specific amount you want to spend on a whole home remodel, it’s essential that you share that with the contractor. You’ll want to obtain quotes from at least a few different contractors to compare costs and determine whether your budget aligns with the scope of work. While you shouldn’t choose a remodeling company based only on costs, getting a better idea of what you’ll expect to pay is a necessary part of the process.
If you ask these simple questions of potential contractors, the answers will help you determine the best fit for any whole home remodel you may pursue. For more information on how we can transform your home for the better, please contact us today.
