When you hire a remodeling contractor in Murrieta, California — or anywhere else — you want to make sure it’s a company you can trust with your project. Box Construction, a longtime Murrieta remodeling contractor, fills you in on what to look for when you’re hiring a company to work on your home.
Get an Experienced General Contractor
As much as we support newbies in the industry, you’re probably better off with an experienced remodeling contractor in Murrieta.
We get it — we were once employees for another company and we struck out on our own to start Box Construction. We told our prospective clients about our previous experience, and we also offered a discount in order to get more jobs and build our reputation.
It’s fine to try out a company like this for small projects, but save your major remodeling projects for a home remodeling company with experience.
Look for a Company with Longevity
Even if a company looks great on paper and has great reviews, it still may be risky to hire them if they are new to the industry — or new to the area. They may be perfectly fine, but if you choose a company that’s been around for a few years, you can be more certain of their reliability and trustworthiness.
A remodeling contractor has to please customers to get more customers, and operating a growing business is proof in itself of a measure of honesty, skill and success.
Make Sure Your General Contractor Has Good Reviews
Nobody gets 100% perfect feedback, but reviews are important. Check out the online reviews of the remodeling contractor you’re thinking of hiring before you make your final decision. Read some of the less-favorable reviews and find out what the issue was.
If the general contractor was late, overbudget, dishonest or rude, that’s a definite no-go. But if the reviewer complained that the color they chose didn’t look the way they thought it would, or they were unhappy about shipping delays for a special component they wanted ordered from Europe, these issues are not the fault of the remodeling contractor and should be taken with a grain of salt.
Paperwork Is in Order
Everything else could be perfect, but a remodeling contractor who doesn’t have a current license or who isn’t bonded and insured isn’t safe to work with. They might be honest and just be bad with deadlines, but do you want a remodeling contractor who’s bad with deadlines?
If anything goes wrong on your property, you do not want to be held liable. Having the proper permits, licenses, insurance and paperwork in order are important.
