Selecting The Right Kitchen Remodeling Contractor

By: RxRenovationXperts on May 5, 2015

Out of all the jobs we do, kitchens are by far the most requested room we are asked to renovate.  At Rx Renovation Xperts, we pride ourselves on our quality kitchen remodels. As a customer though, searching for a company to achieve your dream kitchen can often times be complicated and can be stressful. We do aim to subside any stress you may have during the process, but let us point a few ways to pick out a quality kitchen remodeling contractor.

A lot of our current clients come through referrals and word of mouth. That is one of the main ways to find a quality kitchen remodeling company. Another common way to find a good contractor is online, through sites like Angie’s List, Home Advisor, NKBA, etc. Online may give you a better feel as to what other previous customers may think of your prospective remodeling company.

Once you have identified a handful of professional contractors, you can begin asking for quotes. It is always best to have the contractor come out and talk with you in person. Have them look around the kitchen, take measurements and give you a proper estimate. If a prospective kitchen remodeling company just spouts of numbers without much consideration, be wary. also, get the quote in writing as well. If anyone hesitates to give you a quote in writing, cross them off your list as they do not have your best interests in mind.

Kitchen renovations do take quite some time to finish. Make sure to ask each contractor on an approximate completion date. Most qualified contractors will provide very similar estimates. If someone gives you an unrealistic timeframe, then cross them off your list as well.

Once you have narrowed down your list, begin checking references on each contractor. Some contractors can manipulate the online ratings system and it is best to ask or see previous clients work. We at Rx Renovation Xperts have brought prospective clients to former clients house to show our work.

Once you have decided on your contractor, get a contract for the kitchen remodel. Make sure all items are included in the contract: cost, completion date and any stipulations that may cause a change order. Also make sure you get a copy of the contractor's license and make sure they have general liability coverage as well.

If you follow these steps, the end result will be the dream kitchen you wanted from the start. The less stress involved with a major project like this, the happier you will be in the end. We hope you chose Rx Renovation Xperts for your next kitchen renovation.
