We are glad to learn that home improvement is back! It’s becoming more and more popular to get that new dream kitchen, or an improved spacy bathroom. With more and more people working from home, home offices are a new big deal as well. We asked very busy Swiss Cottage building experts about what folks should know about common home remolding mistakes when it comes to hiring a professional.
Don’t sign with the first contractor you meet with. They will always seem nice, they will always tell you great things, they will always tell you what you want to hear and get you excited, and they are expert sellers. Make sure to do a little background check and make a patient effort to really check on these contractors.
Paying less is always more attractive than paying more, with that said, we are talking about your home and renovations is always about increasing your home value and improving your lifestyle. Settling for the lowest bid actually invites trouble in through the front door. It usually means really cheap materials, unreliable projects, and a low paid work force. Get at least 4-5 bids from Swiss Cottage experts and throw away the lowest one so you are not tempted to take it.
You cannot start working on the project without a written contract that includes every single detail regarding this project. To be more specific ahead of time saves you headaches. Don’t let anything slip away from you. The contract is your safety net in case any disputes arise.
