Choosing Your Contractor

Choose your home remodeler carefully…you will want a remodeler who will treat your home as you would!

For starters, what should I ask a prospective remodeler?

  • What percentage of your business is repeat or referred business?
  • Is there a guarantee in place for your work?
  • Who will be in charge of the remodeling job?
  • Do you carry Worker’s Compensation Insurance? (Don’t forget – you can ask for a copy!)
  • Do you have General Liability Insurance? (You can ask for a copy of this as well)
  • Are you members of the NAHB Remodelers and/or the Greater Lansing Home Builders Association?
  • Do you request all necessary building permits and inspections?
  • Have you faced any construction litigation for any of your work in the last several years?
  • Will you provide a waiver of lien if requested?
  • How will you handle the clean-up?
  • Will you provide me with the references and contact information of previous customers?

What do I need to ask a reference, or look for in the work done by this remodeler?

  • Trustworthiness is essential! If you are not comfortable with a prospective remodeler, move on to another candidate.
  • History of high percentage of repeat customers – No surprise here! If remodelers are not meeting or exceeding expectations, they will not return!
  • The professional remodeler will treat your home like it was his own – and you will never have cause to worry that your home is protected at all times during the remodeling process, and worker debris kept to a minimum.
  • Promptness and readiness – Your remodeler should keep all appointments on time, and show up prepared and ready to work when arriving at your home.
