Are you getting ready to tackle a kitchen remodeling project? Maybe you’re ready to turn your dark basement into a multi-purpose family room? For any major home improvement project, you want to hire a general contractor you can trust to complete the job. As you narrow down your options, consider these hiring tips from James Montie Construction Inc.
1. Gather references.
Ask your friends, family, and co-workers about local general contractors with whom they’ve had personal experience. Be sure to ask many questions and even see the contractor’s work firsthand. From here, you can make a short list of home remodeling companies you want to consider.
2. Conduct your own research.
Poke around on the general contractor’s website to get a feel for his/her services and level of professionalism. Additionally, you may want to check out service review websites or read customer reviews to see what past customers are saying.
3. Consider specialties.
If you want to remodel your bathroom, you may want to choose a contractor who specializes in bathroom remodeling. You can also choose a contractor based off past work, especially if it’s similar to what you want to do.
4. Interview at least three candidates.
Set up times to meet with at least three different general contractors. Make sure they meet with you on site so they can assess the project and supply you with an accurate quote. Take this time to ask all your questions and get a feel for the contractor’s professionalism and customer service.
5. Pay attention to intuition.
At the end of the day, you want to feel comfortable with the contractor you choose. He or she will be in your home, and you want someone you can trust with your home improvements. Go with your gut!
