What Makes A Good Remodeling Contractor?
If you really want to know what makes a good remodeling
contractor, it's honesty, compassion and experience. It really doesn't
get any simpler than that. If you're looking for a good remodeling
contractor, make sure that they have all three of these things and your
remodeling project shouldn't have too many problems.
Let's start with honesty. If you find an honest person, there's a good chance that the only problems you're ever going to have with them, is the fact that sometimes they're a little too honest. They might tell you things that you don't want to hear, but you might need to know.
I would like to do something a little different this time, ask yourself this question, “Who is your favorite man or woman?” More than likely, this person is going to be an extremely honest and compassionate person. Wouldn't you like this kind of person to work on your home, especially if you're going to be dealing with them for quite some time?
Now what about the other two things that make up a good remodeling contractor? Compassion and experience are also important. You wouldn't want someone remodeling your home, who doesn't have enough experience to complete project. Look for someone who has the least 10 years of experience in the remodeling business.
When I say compassion, probably most people think of a Jesus or Buddha, but I'm simply talking about someone that isn't extremely arrogant or has a big ego. Make sure that you get along with your remodeling contractor and that they have your best interest before their own.
If you feel like your contractor isn't telling you the truth or is going to be very difficult to work with, it wouldn't be a bad idea to try and find another contractor to help you with your remodeling project. There is an old saying,” More common ground is less battleground,” and this makes a lot of sense in the construction industry.
