Remodeling your home can be an exciting investment, but it’s not always easy to know how to find a trusted remodeling business. When you’re faced with having to hire a company for the first time, you want to be confident that you will find an ally you can rely on now and into the future. Here are a few 5 signs that you have found a great company for your remodel:
They Provided References
And you followed up with those references! A trustworthy company is going to be happy to provide references. If the business you have hired can provide references, you already have valuable information about their company: that they want to do business with you and that they value the opinions of their customers. There’s nothing better than speaking with the happy former customers of the business you just hired to provide some assurance that you have hired a trustworthy company.
They want your business
If you feel you are listened to and respected when dealing with any member of the company, if they took the time to explain the process to you in layman’s terms, and if they answered questions for you during the design process, you know you’ve found a trusted remodeling business. A trustworthy company you want to work with understands the customer is king.
They priced your remodel fairly
Even the largest project has a budget, and a trusted remodeling business will respect that fact. It’s important to shop around and compare pricing prior to entering into a remodeling contract. If you have shopped and you still feel the company you have hired respects your budgetary restrictions, you can rest assured that you have found a good company.
They are on time
Your time is important. A company worth hiring will quote you an estimate of the time it will take to complete your project, and they will do all they can to make sure they’re on time. If no timeline was established you can take it as a sign that this business doesn’t value your time.
Their work is guaranteed
Few customers think about this point ahead of time. Of course you’re hoping for a successful remodel, but what if you’re dissatisfied with the work? A good company will guarantee their work.
Hiring a company for a remodel can sometimes be daunting, but knowing what to look for in a good company ensures you find someone to get the job done right.
