Choosing The Right Partner For Your Building Renovation
Have you decided to finally tackle that building renovation? The first step will be to find the right construction partner to help! We know that building renovations can be stressful. You want to ensure that the new renovations will improve your business, working conditions, and/or bottom line. And, you likely want to minimize downtime. Choosing the right contractor for the job will make the whole process easier.
Building Renovation vs Remodel
What’s the difference between a renovation and a remodel? We discuss that in great detail in this post. But, to summarize, a renovation generally doesn’t encompass large structural changes or moving plumbing. During a renovation, we can totally transform your office or place of business with new flooring, paint, bathroom updates, and more. Many people opt to do renovation work on their own, however, depending on your leasing arrangements you may be prohibited from renovations without a licensed contractor. Plus, working with a professional can actually save you both time and money. We acquire materials at the best cost and keep your project on track to minimize downtime. That way you can get back to work faster and enjoy your new space!
Choosing A Contractor
Many of our clients come to us as word-of-mouth referrals, and this is the highest compliment we could ever receive! We always recommend talking to your friends and family about their experiences with contractors as a great place to start. Aside from that, narrow your list down to companies with the proper qualifications:
- Appropriate licensing (commercial, residential, etc)
- Bonded and insured
- Adequate portfolio of work
- Previous client references
Set up a consultation with a few of the top contenders so you can get a feel for the overall “vibe” of the company and whether or not you feel they understand your goals.
