Remodeling Challenges


It is not unusual for people to feel stressed when simply thinking about the prospect of remodeling, but it doesn’t have to be that way. When you are looking for a remodeling professional there are some preliminary steps you can take to put your mind at ease.

  • Check out the company’s rating on the Better Business Bureau website
  • Make sure the remodeler has references and good reviews
  • Check if your remodeler belongs to professional organizations
  • View project photos on their website

When you meet your potential remodeler for the first time, an important quality to look for is good communication.  You should feel comfortable expressing your expectations and concerns and feel that they are adequately addressed.   You want someone who listens to your wants and needs. Effective communication with the remodeler you choose will help ensure a successful project. 

Common remodeling concerns:

Disruption in the home

You need to have an element of trust with a remodeler and his crew. Meeting them will give you the opportunity to make sure you are all on the same page. Find out if your remodeler will be on-site during the project or be easily reached to answer your questions and concerns as they come up. Find out if your remodeler uses the same crews on all their projects. This is important because your remodeler needs to be familiar with who will be in your home and the quality of their work.

Health and Safety

The health and safety for your family and pets during a remodel should be a priority. When choosing a remodeler ask about his specific processes and equipment used to keep the area safe and as dust-free as possible.

Timeframe and budget

Realize that many projects may have unexpected delays. Be upfront about your expectations. A professional remodeler will help guide you through the remodeling process and timeline as well as present you with choices when it comes to solutions and budget. Proper planning ahead of time will help your project go smoothly, stay on schedule, and stay within budget.
