Essential Questions to Ask a Residential Remodeler

We know that finding the best contractor for a residential remodeling contract takes a lot of up-front time and research. Of course, it’s important to be somewhat familiar with the general process, but it’s even more important to come prepared to your first meetings or discussions with the right questions.

So, before you set up an appointment with a home remodeling company – or at least before you go into that appointment – keep these key questions in mind to help ensure that your meeting will be well-spent.

  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • What qualities do you look for in your subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
