The Difference Between A Good Remodeling Contractor and A GREAT Remodeling Contractor
If you’re thinking about remodeling a home and you want expert help, you will want to work with a skilled remodel contractor. With the home remodeling business growing at a rapid pace, there is such a huge number of home remodel contractors in the industry now. The key for homeowners is discovering which contractor is the best choice for the work they want done, whether it’s a small bathroom renovation or a whole house remodel project.
Here we look at some of the ways you can distinguish a ‘good’ home remodel contractor, from the exemplary remodel contractors who go above and beyond to be the best in their field.
Accreditations and Certifications
The best remodel contractors have been in the remodeling industry for years and have vast experience with a number of different home projects, styles and clients. Their scope of experience and depth of practice has usually led them to gain accreditation and certifications that other less experienced contractors may not have.
All reputable build contractors should have, at the very minimum, proper licensing, bonding and insurance to ensure your safety and the quality of their work. But the truly outstanding contractors will have additional accreditations and affiliations, such as membership of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and Remodeler’s Advantage, to help hone their expertise and distinguish their talent.
Exemplary contractors are also award winners, being recognized for their outstanding work by professional bodies within their industry. Great remodelers usually receive overwhelmingly positive feedback from clients and shining reviews, but they are also recognized by other remodelling professionals.
The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) recognizes outstanding remodelers each year with their Contractor of the Year award. The National award highlights the achievements and accomplishments of a contractor’s innovative and outstanding work in remodels and renovations.
Proven Record of Excellence
When you’re considering hiring a contractor to remodel your home, a project that could cost you thousands, you want proof of their high quality and outstanding results, not just their word. A great contractor can provide you with a range of references, great reviews from past clients as well as a portfolio of previous work showing before and after shots, and detailing the work done in each project.
Driven to Achieve
Outstanding contractors don’t just settle for good enough, they are constantly driven to continuously improve and achieve ever greater results. By joining organizations and professional development groups, excellent contractors continuously reflect on their practices and hone their skills in order to stay up to date with the latest trends and expert techniques to deliver the best results to you.
The highest quality contractors go above and beyond the regular offerings of design build contractors to bring you a remodel experience that not only produces outstanding results, but allows for a remodel experience that’s more enjoyable and efficient in and of itself. When you need attention to detail, the latest innovations in design and building techniques and the highest standards in safety and quality, always choose a remodel contractor who has distinguished themselves as an expert in the field.
