There are many things to consider when choosing the right contractor for a remodeling project. President and CEO Mike Dodd highlighted how to choose when he was on KC Live last week.
His top five considerations:
Experience – knowing the credibility of the company and how many years they have been in business. The longevity of the company ensures that they will still be around if you have future questions or other projects. We’re very proud to say we have been around for 30 years.
Are they a part of the team – not sub contractor based. All of Wineteer’s contractors are actually employees of the business, helping you know who is actually working on your remodeling projects.
Research and check references – look into Better Business Bureau (BBB) and contracting firms. Ask for copies of certificates of insurance and policies to make sure the company is doing the right thing.
Reliability – are they telling you the truth? If he/she is a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry or the National Association of Home Builders, it shows dedication to their industry and it’s a good indicator that they know what they are doing.
Permits – needed for major mechanical projects and other large projects. Companies must be certified and apply for a permit. If they do not have these, it might be an indication they are not the contractors you want.
