Finding the Best Possible Renovation Contractors

Renovating your home isn’t a task that always sounds like fun if you’re a homeowner. Sure, you want the improvements, but the hassle of actually getting all of that work done can feel like a nightmare.

You’ve probably heard all sorts of stories from friends and neighbors about how bad it can all be too. You’re not alone if you feel like you just can’ t handle the stress of another job gone wrong.

You’ll get the best price and the best work if you do your research before picking a contractor. A contractor that can’t tell you anything about their previous work or give you references isn’t one that you want to work with.


How Many Interviews?

When you’re going to consider hiring a contractor to work on your home, you can’t just pick the first person that walks up to your front door. You can interview people from the phone book, but you should also try to get some real world references from people who have worked with your contractor.

Try to get at least three quotes if you’re hiring a contractor you’re not familiar with. You’ll get the best price and the best work if you do your research before picking a contractor.

Can I See Previous Work?

A contactor that can’t tell you anything about their previous work or give you references isn’t one that you want to work with. Sure, they might offer to make you a great deal, but an inexperienced contractor likely isn’t right for you.

Get real world references and try to see work they’ve done in person. Most contractors have at least some commercial work that they can point you to. Make sure you see the work in person and pay attention to whether it looks good or not.

Not all contractors are worth their rates.

Do You Provide Estimates?

Almost every contractor under the sun will provide an estimate for the work that they’re going to do in your home. Some don’t provide free estimates though, and others will take a very long time to give you a quote.

You can find contractors now though that will give you a quote within 48 to 72 hours of seeing your project. If you don’t want to be in limbo forever, make sure the contractor knows you need to do the work.
