Tips On Choosing A Contractor For Renovation Projects

Whether you’re renovating your home or commercial building, choosing the right contractor for the job is critical. Your choice can make or break your budget – and timeline. Here are some tips to use when looking for a contractor for renovation projects. 

A Contractor For Renovations Should Be Properly Qualified

Sometimes it’s not clear right away if a specific contractor is qualified to perform your specific job, so it’s always best to ask. A reputable contractor will provide you with their complete qualifications, proof of licensure, and bonding/insurance. As a full-service general contractor, Dunlap performs a wide scope of work across multiple construction sectors. However, we specialize in new commercial construction, renovations, and remodels.

Check Their Communication Style

When you submit an inquiry, does someone get back to you promptly? Early on in the quoting process, you’ll be able to tell if a contractor communicates effectively and in a timely manner. Since communication throughout the project is critical, take note of those early warning signs. Your contractor should be honest, direct, and willing to take the time to make sure you understand technical jargon.

Do You Jive?

Ultimately, you want to feel like your contractor understands your vision for the space and can make it happen (within reason). Does your style match with their existing work? Do you get along and feel like you want to work together? This “gut reaction” can be a crucial deciding factor. Don’t underestimate the power of that first impression.

Look At Recent Projects/References

Word of mouth is a valuable tool for finding a contractor that people love to work with. Talk to your friends and family to see if they have any experience with a contractor that they would recommend. In addition, look for repeat clients. If someone is using the same contractor over and over, that’s a pretty good indicator of reliable, quality work. 

Building lasting relationships with our clients is one of our highest priorities. When you work with Dunlap, you become part of our family. That’s why clients come back to us again and again. We are always honored to be a trusted partner on any project, large or small. If you’re in need of a contractor for renovation, give us a call or contact us online.
