Finding home remodeling contractors is no easy task. Even more difficult is finding a company that will treat you right and put your needs before their own. How do you know what questions to ask?
Whether you’re looking to do a bathroom remodel or a kitchen makeover, it’s important that you get matched with the right general contractor.
We’re here to help with some tips and tricks so that you can find the best home remodeling contractors near you.
The best contractors make themselves easy to find. Look to Google for recommendations and reviews of the work that they’ve done and customers’ opinions of the company. Don’t forget to ask families and friends as well. Most likely they’ll be several individuals you know who have worked with a local remodeling contractor.
When researching renovation and remodeling companies, here are a few questions that you should ask:
If a company fits these criteria, you can be sure that they have worked hard to build their business and their reputation. It might not always mean that they’re the right contractor for you, but it’s a great place to start.
After you’ve found a few different renovation companies that you’d be willing to work with, compare the work they’ve done. If a contractor you’re looking at has already done great work on similar projects that you’re looking for, that’s going to help put your mind at ease. Whether that project is a kitchen remodel, a total home renovation, or a bathroom remodel, you won’t have to worry if they’ve already done the job at least once before.
Most reputable construction companies, especially those in the home industry, are going to offer galleries on their website that highlights some of their best work. You can find our gallery here.
After you’ve narrowed your list down a bit and decided on who you might think is qualified, you can start collecting estimates. Every company is going to estimate cost slightly different, but you should always be given a high and a low bid from a company. If you choose some of the cheaper options, you’d be able to save some money, and if you choose the most expensive materials, it might run slightly more expensive.
When you’ve found a contractor that’s willing to get the job done the way you want it within the time frame you have and for the right price, you’ll be ready to start your final review of the company.
Before you sign on any dotted lines, you’ll want to consider reaching out to some prior clients that have worked with the same company. Doing this will give you a few different things.
Each of these questions should help you work through a final review that will help to assure you of who you’re hiring. If the project you’re looking to complete is as simple as a kitchen remodel or a flooring job, then you might not find this step necessary. But, if you’re doing a facelift on the majority of your house and you’ll be working with the same company for a few months, then you’ll want to be sure of what you’re getting into.

“WISA's work on our kitchen remodel and basement upgrade exceeded all expectations. They made significant concessions to come to an agreed upon price, there were no hidden fees, started when we needed them, completed prior to expected completion date and their quality of workmanship and materials were second to none.…”
“This is the second project WISA has completed for me, and once again, they did an absolutely fabulous job. Daoud and Waris were fabulous with their estimate and communications, and Eduardo (the carpenter) made sure everything was perfect. I love my new counter and will call them again for the…”
“WISA stands behind their work, which is high-quality. Waris and Daoud are very communicative and were very helpful in getting work done on time. Some of their rates were a bit higher than other competitors, but for the quality of service and work, it's worth it!”
“WISA Solutions is a top notch contractor. We reached out to numerous contractors for our kitchen, foyer and half bath renovation. WISA was by far the most responsive, detailed and affordable of the three quotes that we received. Working with Waris and Daoud was a breeze. This was our first…”
“Great Job! Excellent work at a fair price. WISA remodeled our two upstairs bathrooms. We received 3 quotes for this job. WISA was a bit lower than the others, but not by a huge amount. What impressed us was their presentation. We had a chance to visit to a similar…”
