How to Choose a Remodeling Contractor in Katy and General Houston, TX area:
When choosing a contractor for your home remodel, stick to these simple steps-
Ask for Referrals / References
Word of mouth-hands down, is the best way to find a qualified professional to tackle the job. Ask relatives, friends and neighbors whom they've had good experiences with. And ask what made it a positive experience, how the contractor handled problems and whether he or she would use the same contractor again. At Katy Pros and Check A Pro we always get references from the contractor and call the homeowner to check them out. You should also be prudent and do this.
Ask for the Contractors License -
Unfortunately in the state of Texas not all home service providers (contractors) are required to have a license to remodel. Some professionals which require a license are: Air Conditioning Contractors, Pest Control, Sprinkler / Irrigation, Electricians and Plumbers. Before you hire a remodeling contractor check to see if they have and require a license.
Unfortunately the state of Texas does not require all home service providers (contractors) to have insurance to remodel. Texas does require all licensed contractors to carry a minimum amount of liability insurance. Workers compensation insurance is also voluntary in the state Texas. Be sure your contractor is licensed and ask for their C.O.I. or Certificate of Insurance.
Check the Contractors Work
Ask to see some of the contractors' projects. If you approve of them, request references and call contractors' former customers to check up on them. Ask how the contractors did at executing the projects. Were they on time and on budget? Were the customers pleased with the outcome? Was there anything that could have been done differently?
Remember that when you're hiring a remodeler, you are buying a service and not a product. Quality of service will determine the quality of the finished project. Here are some things you'll want to explore and questions you'll want to ask when interviewing a remodeler.
More about who you are going to hire in a Contractor -
1: Does the remodeler maintain a permanent mailing address, e-mail address, personal phone number, fax number, cell phone and voicemail?
2: Does the remodeler have insurance that protects you from liability? Ask for a copy of the remodeler's insurance certificates (C.O.I.) to be sure. Also, ask the remodeler how much the project will add to the home's value and attain additional insurance from your provider.
3: Does the remodeler have an established reputation in the community? How long has the company been in business? Does the remodeler maintain solid relationships with contractors such as plumbers and electricians and work with them as a team?
4: Does the remodeler have a trustworthy reputation among customers and peers? Is there a track record of success?
5: Get It in Writing -
After selecting a contractor, take a look at the documents he or she has prepared. Do they look professional? Scrutinize the contract. Does it seem fair and balanced? And make sure the legal agreement protects you the homeowner.
