Top five qualities to look for before hiring a Northeast Florida home remodeler
Your Jacksonville home is where the heart is. Whether you’re looking to remodel your kitchen, bathroom, or any other room in your Deerwood, Ponte Vedra Beach or Sawgrass area home, it’s imperative you find someone you can trust when hiring a home remodeling contractor.
This team will be coming in and out of your home for several days, weeks, or even months. Before letting a professional home remodeler into your personal living space, you need to figure out who you can trust.
So we made that easier for you by listing the top five things you should consider before hiring anyone to remodel your Northeast Florida home.
1. Reviews and reputation
The best place to start when trying to find a home remodeling company that fits your needs is to Google some in your area. Do this by searching “home remodeling companies in Jacksonville.” What are the company’s Google star reviews that appear? Consider the most recent reviews and the lowest and highest rated reviews. Have you heard any word-of-mouth reviews from friends, family, or neighbors?
Think about what you’re looking to remodel in your home. Are you looking for someone in Mandarin to remodel your kitchen? You probably don’t want someone who specializes in room add-ons nor someone located outside of Florida.
Not only are you looking for a company that is experienced in a specific remodeling area, but you’re also looking for someone who has a portfolio that matches your design aesthetic or is in tune with your vision. Browse potential remodeling companies’ portfolios on their websites, and don’t be afraid to ask them for more photos and information.
3. Transparency and honesty
A good home remodeler in Jacksonville will be honest and walk you through the entire process. This includes timelines, when certain projects will be completed, and who will be in your home.
They should also be transparent about cost. You deserve to know what your home remodeler can do for you within your budget. They can help scale the project down if it’s too grand and have them work their hardest to complete the project under budget.
You might have been thinking about remodeling your home for years or this is a new project you’ve just started considering. Either way, we understand you want your home renovation completed as quickly as possible. A trustworthy home remodeler should understand that and strive to complete your home renovation as quickly as possible, considering Duval County and St. John’s County permitting, and within your budget.
Professionalism can fall under many umbrellas. A professional home remodeler in Northeast Florida should be able to find the best solution to any problem you have. Not only that, but they should treat you and your home with respect by showing up on time and communicating when certain projects will be completed and on what day.
A great contractor also never imposes their own taste into your home. They may give suggestions, but your final product should reflect your design preferences. They should be helping you create your dream home!
Don’t rush to make a decision
Remodeling your home can be a significant investment of time and money. Don’t rush to find a home remodeler and choose the first one you find. Take your time and do your research to see if they’re the right partner for your home.
