If you’re renovating your home, whether you’ve just purchased a fixer-upper or you’re getting ready to sell a house in Grand Junction (or you’re somewhere in-between the two), you need to know how to put together a winning home renovation team.
You’ll save yourself a lot of time, money, and headaches if you have the right people working with you.
How to Put Together a Winning Home Renovation Team
Even if you’re planning on making some renovations yourself, you’re going to need some pros on your team—and you want to make sure that the people you hire are really pros so you’re not overpaying for low-quality work.
Finding the Right Professionals
Don’t head to Google for information just yet. First, ask family and friends (or your Realtor®) for referrals to trusted experts whose work they’ve seen.
You need to put together a list of candidates, even if you’re fairly certain that you’ve found contractors you’d like to work with—that way, you can ensure that you’re hiring the right people.
First things first, once you have your list: look at all the reviews you can find for each professional. Don’t be too worried about one or two disappointing reviews—but if you see more than a couple, it’s probably best to scrap the candidate and keep looking.
Once you’ve narrowed down to a few choices, start making calls. You’ll need to ask questions such as:
- Are you licensed?
- Are you insured?
- How long have you been in business?
- How much experience do you have with the types of renovations I want?
This can give you a great start, but you’ll still need to set up in-person meetings. That way, you can have the contractors view the property (and your new design ideas) and they can give you their personal estimates. It also helps ensure that you and the contractor you ultimately choose have the same vision—and that you’ll work together well.
