If you are planning on remodeling your kitchen, then you will need the help of a great contractor. At The Gallery of Stone, we understand that it can be difficult to know how to find the right contractor or to even know where to look. To assist you in your selection, we have put together this article to give you some tips on how to find the best kitchen remodeling contractor for your home.
- Ask for Referrals. When it comes to finding a great contractor, including a kitchen remodeling contractor, word-of-mouth is often the best way to go. Ask around your family and friends for referrals, especially if their remodel was relatively recent. While looking for referrals, we recommend asking a few questions about the referral-giver’s experience with the contractor, including how the contractor handled problems and setbacks, and whether they would work with that contractor again.
- Check Credentials. Once you have a few recommendations, the next step is to do some research on their credentials–after all, the last thing you want is for your kitchen remodeling contractor to cut corners or deliver subpar results. Check to make sure the contractor has all the necessary trade licenses and look into how long they’ve been working in the trade to make sure they have the right experience to do the job.
- Interview Each Candidate. After you have narrowed your list of candidates down to three, start making calls to interview each one. Ask any questions you have and note their answers to compare later. In addition, we recommend paying attention to how they answer your questions in order to get a feel for their communication style and whether it will work for you. Lastly, the best kitchen remodeling contractors will ask you, the client, plenty of questions about your home and what you want to achieve in order to provide the best service.
