The adage, “You get what you pay for,” is never truer than in the home remodeling industry. Nobody likes to experience buyer’s remorse during or after a home renovation project, but everyone wants the best deal for the greatest value.
Cheapest is not always better, however, especially when it comes to making long-lasting home improvements like renovating an outdated kitchen, turning a basement into a man cave or adding a new bathroom.
Hiring a quality contractor from the start means you’ll only need to remodel once, and not two or three times to fix the costly mistakes made by a sloppy contractor who cuts corners to give you that “great deal.” Here’s a few tips on why hiring a quality contractor matters when remodeling:
Remodeling without Disappointment or Disruption
For many people, making a drastic change and remodeling our homes is a decision we mull over for several months, and sometimes years. We worry we’ll be disappointed with the outcome or it will cause too much disruption in our already-busy lives.
By working with a highly qualified and knowledgeable contractor like Central Construction Group owner Brian Oltmanns, you’ll know exactly what can and cannot be done from a structural sense and you’ll see the project spring to life with professional 3D designs created by CCG’s in-house designer. Once design plans and material selections are finalized, the project manager works to keep disruptions in your home to a minimum.
Labor Shortage May Delay Remodeling
With home prices on the rise, new construction harder to find and more opportunities to age in place, many homeowners are deciding to stay put and remodel their current homes. The Home Improvement Research Institute expects the steady increase in remodeling activity to continue through 2021.
As more homeowners decide to remodel, the remodeling and construction industry continues to struggle with an ongoing labor shortage of qualified workers. A reputable contractor with experience manages his time well, knows who he needs to hire to get the job done and works diligently to meet established deadlines.
Trust Your Biggest Investment to the Pros
If your home remodeling job requires the services of a specialty tradesman, an experienced general contractor knows which subcontractors do the best work at the best price. A GC also knows where to find the right materials for a good price and will be willing to discuss cost-saving measures without sacrificing quality.
A reputable GC who’s completed many home remodeling and construction projects carries the proper liability insurance, holds up-to-date certifications and follows local licensing laws to do the work. Check the contractor’s reviews and ask to speak to former clients.
Protect your biggest investment by hiring a true professional for your next home remodeling project. You won’t be disappointed.
