5 Tips for Hiring A Home Remodeling Contractor
Any good contractor who is confident in their work should have no problems answering any and all of a customer’s questions about a project. At Install America, we pride ourselves in informing customers about everything they want and need to know, which is essentially the point of our in-home demonstrations. We inform, demonstrate, and answer all questions and concerns so there is no worry and there are no surprises.
Price is Usually Based on Quality
Getting a great price for a large project is always a plus, and it may seem like a no-brainer to go with the cheapest estimate, but that isn’t always the best way to go. This is where “You get what you pay for” comes into play. The cheaper project may be cheaper due to sub-par materials being used, or workers with less experience being entrusted with your home. Install America can assure you that the best materials are always used and installed by highly-trained and certified professionals to reduce costly maintenance in the future.
Shop for Credentials
The credential abbreviations listed next to a contractor’s name aren’t just there to look good. Those are there to reassure customers that the contractor has all of the necessary certifications to do your project and to do it well. Some of Install America’s credentials include:
- Awarded an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau
- Awarded Top 500 Remodeler
- Backed by the Good Housekeeping warranty
- Member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)
- Lead Safe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified
- GAF certified (roofing)
- BCI certified (bathrooms)
Set a Budget (With a Little Wiggle Room)
When a customer has a budget in mind, it makes it a little easier for the product specialists to come up with a solution to the problem(s) at hand. At Install America, we understand that not every customer is made of money, so we offer financing through our in-house financing department to make sure that our customers are able to have their project(s) completed at the most affordable option available to them.
The Process of a Home Renovation Isn’t Always Pretty
A home renovation doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes planning, preparation, and usually some demolition. Unfortunately, this can result in loud, disruptive noises and possible temporary relocation for bathroom or kitchen usage. At this point in time, the important thing to keep in mind is the vision of the end result. Here at Install America, our installers do their best to complete high-quality projects in a professional, timely manner, leaving no mess behind and leaving customers with their completed dream renovation.
