Follow these simple steps to choose the builder that’s right for you.
Can we build it? Yes, we can – assuming you have the contractor that’s right for you and your project! We’ve all heard about remodeling problems: spiraling budgets, half-finished projects and construction taking way longer than planned. These stories may seem like nightmares, but in reality you are likely hearing the worst of the worst. The vast majority of builders are competent, professional, and more than capable of amazing results and with a bit of due-diligence, you can find a contractor that will work well with you and your project.
Love the kitchen and patio addition your neighbors just had done? Find out who they worked with and see if they are suitable for your
project. Check with your local Chamber of Commerce or look online for services in your area on Houzz or Angie’s list where you can read
reviews and see the type of work the professionals specialize in.
Do You Need a Specialist or a General Contractor?
A general contractor is suitable for most jobs unless your project requires something special. Some custom projects such as installing large
patio doors or creating beautiful tile design require someone who specializes in these areas for optimum results.
Know what you want AND be open to suggestions…
You have a vision and your contractor can help bring it to fruition and he may have a more efficient way to get there. Building and
construction are his specialty! He may be able to facilitate getting the blueprint plans drawn-up and assist in wading through the local
building code requirements and permit process. Use your builder’s knowledge, experience and expertise to your advantage.
One of the most important parts of taking on a remodeling project is choosing a quality craftsman that will match your vision and last for years to come.
