Are you inspired in the new year to give your home a refresh or plan a home improvement project? A remodel can modernize your home and add more value too. Before you start a project big or small, consider finding and hiring a professional remodeler or design-build firm. Working with an expert has many benefits. A qualified remodeler can provide a wealth of experience, professional integrity, and solve design challenges you may encounter during your project.
Consider attending this month’s Seattle Home & Garden Show, Thursday,2/22 to Sunday, 2/25. There will be professionals onsite, along with seminars and tips to help you make the right choices when hiring your next home improvement professional.
Experience on the Job Site
Do you know what to expect when you remove a wall? How will you dispose of the old materials? Exactly how much new material are you going to need? What is the precise sequence of steps to finish the job? Professional remodelers understand all the intricacies of the project and can provide you with a project timeline. Plus, many contractors have specialized knowledge and contacts to get the best prices on materials and labor. As a trained expert, a remodeler has a firm grasp of the requirements to meet city ordinances, regulations and permits.
Business Management and Integrity
A large component of being a professional remodeler is maintaining a reputable business. This includes integrating best practices, writing clear contracts, having insurance, providing warranties, and more. A professional remodeler will be able to provide you with a copy of their business license, as well as show proof of their workers’ compensation and liability insurance. This will protect you from liability in situations involving job site injuries or property damage resulting from the work being done on your home. Better business management means better service for homeowners because they can rely on the remodeler to perform with integrity.
Customizing to Fit Your Needs
Home remodeling frequently involves problem solving, such as maximizing existing space, strategically building additions, or navigating limited budgets. Professional remodelers can help homeowners manage such challenges and meet their needs while staying within the budget. Proper training and invaluable experience help remodelers identify the various options and solutions to satisfy their customers.
If your goal is a well-executed project, then your best bet is to hire a professional remodeler. By investing in their expertise now, you will get to enjoy the tangible benefits of high-quality craftsmanship for many years to come.
