A home remodeling project is an exciting thing to do, and it requires a hefty investment of time and money. Finding the right company to do the work isn’t easy though since you need to be critical with your choice if you want your remodeling project to succeed. So what should you look out for? Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis talks about the five questions you should ask a remodeling company’s references.
1. How Big Was the Project?
One of the first things you should ask your references is the exact scope of the projects h andled by your prospect. This gives you some insight into how big a job they can actually h andle. Knowing the scope of a remodeling company’s work also gives you an idea of how well they actually did the project and if they specialize in smaller or larger work.
2. Did The Company Provide Adequate Credentials?
Whether you’re planning a full revamp of a room or just replacing windows, you need to know if the company you’re planning to work with can provide the necessary credentials. Ask their references if the company carries the proper licenses, along with worker insurance and liability. Our company knows the importance of providing adequate credentials to every homeowner we work with, since it shows that we’re a reputable and trustworthy company.
3. How Was the Communication Between You and the Company?
Adequate communication is important in any home remodeling project, so you’ll also want to ask the references if they stayed in touch and provided adequate communication before and during the actual project. Communication also extends to written documents, so ask the references if the company provided written details of who will be working on the project, how they’ll do it, and the like.
4. Was the Remodeling Team on Time?
Punctuality is something that our remodeling company thinks highly of, and is a “small” detail that you should always ask the references. Was the remodeling team on time during the actual work day? Being on time means we value the time and money you’re investing on your home.
5. Did Your Project Stay Within The Budget?
Finally, you’ll also want to know if the remodeling company was able to stay within the budget that you will lay out. While it’s not uncommon for extra costs to pop up here and there, the company should be able to fit the work within your budget whether you’re installing new doors or remodeling an entire room.
These are just some of the many questions you should ask your prospective remodeling company’s references. Asking these will help you determine if the company is the best choice for your project. Give us a call at (314) 332-2364. We offer home remodeling to homeowners throughout St. Louis, MO.
