Hire a Reputable Contractor
Is 2017 the year you want to tackle that big home renovation project you’ve been putting off? Fueled largely by the rebounding housing market, home improvement spending in 2016 was predicted to reach $155 billion, according to Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies.
The proof is in the pudding. Demand for home renovation and remodeling work is outpacing the supply of qualified professionals, which is why it’s even more important to hire a contractor who is reliable and reputable now, more than ever.
Sadly, there are a number of remodeling professionals who are much less experienced, ready to conduct shady practices with unskilled laborers and renovations that later result in “unforeseen problems”. According to the Consumer Reports National Research Center, over 300 general contractors admitted (anonymously) in a recent survey to conducting unacceptable work for homeowners. One way to weed out the bad from the good, is to be weary of anyone accepting work with lowball bids, accepting cash only, working on a verbal agreement or jacking up costs once the work is complete.
When you ask questions and work with qualified professionals, it’s best to hire a team who will work together. When you’ve agreed on a renovation project, the Designer, Architect and General Contractor should be in constant communication with eachother from day one in order to ensure everything runs smoothly. When you choose Taylored Restoration for your remodel, renovation or home addition project, you can relax knowing you've chosen a company that has put Alaskan's best interests at the forefront since 1972.
