You’re a proud homeowner, and you finally have the funds and the motivation to remodel your outdated kitchen; So how do you begin? By checking design magazines? Scanning cabinet catalogues? Studying paint chips?
Actually, selecting a contractor has a far greater impact on the success of your project than your selection of kitchen faucets or wallpaper. Making the effort to hire a reputable and skilled contractor will help save both time and money and ensure that the job gets done right.
DIY or DIFM?
Me or them? A generation ago, most people did their own improvements around the house (DIY or Do-It-Yourself). However, with today’s busier schedules, there’s less time to devote to your home renovation. As a result, using a contractor (DIFM, or Do-It-For-Me) has become an increasingly popular option for your home improvement.
It’s Who You Know
Interesting how the good ones are always busy. The best way to find a contractor, plumber, electrician, or anyone else to do work around your home is a direct call to Homeservice Club.
License? Check. Insurance? Check. Requirements for a license vary from city to city, hiring a licensed contractor means you’re hiring an individual that complies with local regulations and standards. Not all contractors carry liability insurance, but all Homeservice Club contractors do. If you have a contractor working in your home make sure they have appropriate coverage.
Not only will this help you get a fair price, but each contractor might present different options for achieving your goals. When asking the contractors to prepare their quotes, make sure each is bidding on the same (or at least very similar) design and materials so that you can fairly compare the price. Homeservice Club provides members with up to three free estimates from contractors specifically chosen to do the type of work you are looking for.
It’s All in the Contract
If it isn’t in the contract, it’s safe to assume it isn’t included in the pricing or timeline. Basically, don’t assume anything if it’s not in writing. A Homeservice Club contract ensures that the work is performed as you envisioned and is backed by our Double Guarantee.
