One of the most popular remodeling projects among homeowners is a kitchen remodel. These projects frequently increase a kitchen’s functionality, appearance, and atmosphere while significantly raising a home’s value. However, before you sign a contract with a local contractor, it’s important to know what you’re looking for to ensure quality service. Check out these four features your kitchen remodeling contractor should have, brought to you by Booher Remodeling Company.
1. Licensed and Insured
Any contractor you choose to hire should be licensed and covered by insurance. You could be potentially responsible for any financial consequences if your contractor causes any damages while working without a valid license or insurance. Even worse, depending on the cause of the damage, your homeowner’s insurance coverage might not cover the damage your house sustained.
Many remodeling companies offer a variety of services. For example, they may be whole home or bathroom contractors that only take on a few kitchen projects yearly. Because the kitchen is such an essential part of your home, we always recommend finding a contractor with a lot of experience remodeling kitchens.
3. Clear Scheduling Expectations
Kitchen remodeling can be very disruptive to your everyday life. Because of this, you want a company that is going to be upfront with their scheduling and will be able to give you an estimate of how long the project will take. Of course, there is always the possibility of delays or challenges beyond their control, but you can always ask how they handle delays and how often you can expect your project to be worked on.
4. Transparent Cost Analysis
Finally, discussing expenses upfront with potential contractors is crucial because a kitchen remodel is such a large investment. Find out exactly what costs for services, materials, and labor are included in the estimate. Learning how the contractor might handle overages or unanticipated modifications to the original estimate would also be beneficial. And don’t forget to find out what costs your estimate does not include.
