When you’re planning a kitchen remodeling project, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is your choice of contractor. Choose the right contractor, and you’ll enjoy beautiful results and a pleasant experience. Choose an inferior contractor and your dream kitchen project could turn into a nightmare.
Whether installing new kitchen cabinets, completing cabinet refacing, or undertaking a full kitchen remodel, doing some research before signing on the dotted line with a contractor is a must before moving forward with this important investment.
Everyone starts somewhere, but hiring a brand-new kitchen remodeling company is too big a risk for some. Instead, choose a company that has the experience to handle your project and that has had the time to build a reputation for delivering excellent results.
Read—and Heed—Customer Reviews and References
Reading what past customers have said about their experiences working with kitchen contractors gives you a window into what you can expect when you work with a contractor for cabinet updates and other remodeling projects.
In addition to online reviews, ask the kitchen contractor for references that you can call to verify that they had a positive experience and would recommend working with the company.
Price Counts, but It’s Not Everything
Price does matter when choosing a kitchen remodeling company, but hiring based only on the lowest bid is often a mistake homeowners regret. Instead of looking only at price, find a contractor that offers competitive prices without sacrificing quality. This will help ensure that you’ll enjoy services that are the perfect mix of quality and value.
Check Out Past Projects
Just as is the case in every industry, kitchen craftsmen often have their own style. By browsing images of past work a kitchen remodeling contractor has done, you can find one who delivers work in a style you love.
Get a Written Estimate—ALWAYS
Talk is cheap, and that’s especially true when it comes to estimates for kitchen remodeling and other home updates. Get everything in writing in detail, and always read the fine print to avoid any unpleasant surprises on the final invoice.
If a contractor is ever reluctant to put his promises in writing, that’s a red flag to move on to the next.
