Tips for Hiring A Good Contractor

Hiring a Home Remodeling Contractor

The average cost of a kitchen or bathroom remodel varies greatly across Massachusetts. 

We recommend to always start with a budget. Before you hire a contractor or buy any supplies. Having a complete vision of what you want will help you set a price range and if you do work with a contractor will help them throughout the entire process.

After you set a budget, how do you find the best kitchen remodeling contractor for you?

Finding the Best Contractors for Your Home Remodel Project

Finding a good contractor can be a challenge, but seeing as you landed on our site you are in good hands. If you weren’t referred to us by one of your friends or relatives that had a good experience, we hope you had a chance to review us online and see some of our previous work. 

A great contractor can explain what options are available to you in your home and how to work best with the structure of your home. Working with the housing frame instead of trying to work against it.

Keep these things in mind when searching for the best contractor for your home project:

Focus on an in-depth interview process

Request at least three referrals for projects that were similar to yours

  1. Request licensing and insurance information upfront

Interviewing Contractors

This can seem daunting to many homeowners, but know that no amount of questions should drive off a great contractor. The more questions you have and the more involved you want to be in your kitchen renovation should motivate a contractor to answer all of your questions honestly.

Ask for our insight, and what we could see being done with your space. Many companies, including us, offer no-obligation in-home consultations. This is a great opportunity to get to know the contractor you may be working with! Take advantage of it and use it as a chance to interview as well.

Requesting Referrals

Only a few short years ago the best way to find a great contractor was to ask your friends who were also homeowners. However, many people have moved away from making large-scale renovations on their homes or are not homeowners at all.

How do you find a good kitchen contractor now? Well, with the internet it’s possible to contact any company that is willing to take the job. However, if you want to get a good picture of who you may end up working with, ask the company for three references from similar projects.

Don’t hesitate to ask for referrals. Many companies know that this is the best source of business for them and will happily provide contact information for referrals.

Request License and Insurance Information

You don’t want to find yourself in any situation with a company that isn’t properly insured and licensed. The benefit of asking for this information first is that you will quickly eliminate any companies you were considering that isn’t properly insured.
