Where to Start…Make a list of potential remodelers using our Find A Remodeler search tool.
Look Around…Once you have a list of licensed remodelers, learn about their reputation and the quality of their work. Reputable remodelers should be more than willing to provide references for their work.
Communication & Trust is Key…You’ll want someone with whom you can communicate well, combined with someone you trust. After all, the relationship with your contractor is a partnership that involves one of your most important assets â€“ your home.
Other Important Tips:
- Collect ideas about what you’d like from magazines, BIA Home Shows and from friends and neighbors;
- Be open and honest about your budget and lifestyle. Let your remodeler help you maximize your project within your limits;
- Design is critical. Work closely with your remodeler to leverage their design capabilities or those of an architect and/or design professional.
