When Home Renovation is More than a Kitchen Makeover
Choose an Experienced Remodeling Contractor in the Bay Area
Modernizing a few rooms in your home, such as the kitchen, master bedroom and bathroom is often just the start of a project that quickly explodes into a whole house makeover. How smoothly the project goes will depend on the capabilities of your remodeling contractor. Here is some expert advice on how to achieve the desired results when your home renovation is more than just a kitchen makeover.
3 Tips for Remodeling Your Home
- Choose the right remodeler: It may seem like the obvious first step, but surprisingly, it is the one that many homeowners take lightly, and regret later. It is important to hire a contractor with an excellent track record and credentials. Look for more than 5 years of experience and positive customer reviews. Check that the team can handle the size of your project and not just a single room expansion or renovation. Ask for references and speak to previous clients about their experience. If possible, request to see the finished work. It is also important that you feel comfortable working with the team as they will be in your home for a long period. Evaluate the contractor’s communications process. They should be reachable and willing to answer all your questions. Remember: if the price is unbelievably low, you’ll probably pay more later to rebuild and repair shoddy work.
- Hire professionals to manage the entire renovation project: Architects, tradespeople, suppliers, and many others are involved in rebuilding a home. This makes accountability difficult. Having a building or remodeling professional to manage the entire project will save you time, money and stress. At Flegel’s, our customers enjoy peace of mind knowing we keep a close check on quality, timelines and their budget. We are happy to work with an architect and/or contractor of your choice to make your renovation dreams a reality. If you need references for architects and designers, we can help connect you with suitable service providers.
- Get written confirmation: Jumping into a renovation project without a detailed scope and cost estimate is a recipe for disaster. Make sure everything is in writing and crystal clear before you sign on the dotted line and start work. This must include what will and will not be done, timelines, expenses and any special discounts or services the contractor has promised.
