Tips for Hiring a Good Contractor for a Kitchen Renovation


 
Construction,Home Improvement,Home Repair
Having a kitchen renovation done is stressful enough when everything goes to plan. It can be so much more stressful when the kitchen renovation goes wrong, especially when the contractor is the problem. Here are some of the best tips to help you find a great contractor for your kitchen remodeling projects.

1. The Cheapest Estimate Is Not Always the Best

Getting a few different estimates for your kitchen renovation is important, but picking the cheapest estimate is not always the best option. If you find a contractor who gives you an estimate that is way lower than others, there is most likely a good reason why. For most estimates, the cost of materials for a kitchen remodeling project is around the same. Where you are going to see differences in price is the labor cost. If the cost is much lower than other contractors, this contractor is most likely using day laborers instead of qualified tradesmen, or full-time employees.

2. Never Pay Over 50% of the Estimated Price Upfront

The one that you should never do when hiring any contractor is pay more than 50 percent of the total cost as the initial payment. If a contractor asks for more than this amount, it should be a red flag. If your kitchen renovation needs special items, you may have to pay for them in the initial payment. In these cases, you should have the contract state the costs of the extra items, and why they are needed.

3. Have a Clear Start Date and End Date for the Kitchen Renovation

One of the most important items to state in your kitchen renovation contract is when the work is going to start and end. The reason for this clause is to make sure the contractor will have the work completed by the end date. If a job is going to take longer than what is in the contract, extensions can be given. A contractor who is not going to finish by the end date will provide you will a plan about how they are going to handle the delays.

4. Insured and Licensed

If a contractor is not insured and not licensed, you should not hire them for any work in your house, let alone a kitchen renovation. The license helps you later on if there is a problem with your kitchen renovation. The licensing board will send an inspector out to see what the problem is, and make sure that the contractor returns and fixes the problems.

Have a kitchen renovation done the right way the first time, saves you time and money. Hiring a good contractor avoids the headaches and stress that bad contractors cause. Remember if it sounds too good to be true, there is usually a catch.
