Not all remodeling contractors are created equally. Custom Renovations, Inc. has over 20 years experience in remodeling homes in the Raleigh-Durham area; one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. We have completed numerous kitchen remodeling, room and deck additions (http://www.customrenovate.com/), and bathroom remodeling projects all over the Triangle area. Throughout the years, we have learned what clients look for when choosing a general contractor. These five tips can help you save money and avoid headaches.
1) Theory to Practice
With the downward trend of new home sales and construction, many general contractors are flocking to the home remodeling industry. The transition from new home construction seems natural enough, but the principles are not necessarily the same. As company with over 20 years of experience in the Raleigh home remodeling market, Custom Renovations, Inc understands both the theory and practice of home renovation.
Remodeling contractors should not only be eager to compete for your project, but they must also be able to let you know if a particular upgrade may not be best for your home.
Unlike most industries, experience in home remodeling does not mean you will have to pay more. Experience shows the longevity of a business, and means that the company or contractor is more than a “fly by night” operation. Experienced home remodeling contractors are more likely to give an accurate time frame for completion and estimate. It also means that the contractor has a set of established subcontractors that they can trust to provide the best services to clients/homeowners.
Do not just fall for a fancy website or advertisement when it comes to selecting a remodeling contractor
