How to Choose the Right Kitchen Remodeling Expert in NJ
So you’re ready to remodel your kitchen. You have a design in mind and a budget to spend. But you’re lost when it comes to finding the right kitchen remodeler in New Jersey. Not to worry! We’ve written this post to help you find the perfect kitchen remodeling expert for your next project. Follow these simple steps…
1. Ask around.
It may seem simple enough but just asking friends and family about who they used on their kitchen remodel project could be a great step in the right direction. Often people feel like they’re being pulled in so many different directions when it comes to choosing a remodeling expert. Relying on someone you know to give you an answer helps. However, don’t immediately go with the first recommendation you receive. We’ve all heard horror stories about contractors starting a job, taking the money, and never coming back. You don’t want to be that person. Even if someone recommends a kitchen remodeler to you, follow the rest of the steps to make sure they’re legit.
2. Check out different sites.
This step might also be pretty obvious but, believe me, it gets overlooked. When you’re trying to find a contractor you want to make sure they have a good reputation online. Let’s say someone recommended a company to you, Google them. Make sure to look over the first 50 results for anything strange. This could be odd reviews, legal issues, or an old website. Yes, this might seem time consuming but it could save you from getting burned in the end.
Below are some great sites to help you get started…
3. Go with your gut.
You’ve probably heard it a hundred times before and that’s because it’s true. Going with your gut is a good way to weed out any of the bad contractors out there that might do more harm to your kitchen than good. There’s even research that backs it up.
4. Ask about past projects.
All reputable kitchen remodelers are more than happy to brag about their past projects – we sure are! However, if you come across a remodeler that claims they are an expert but doesn’t talk about any past projects or past clients, you might be getting lied to.
5. Find out if they fit your budget.
Price is a big indicator as to whether the kitchen contractor is right for you or not. As you narrow down your selection from contractor to contractor, you will want to make sure that they give you accurate price estimates. Make sure that each of the remodelers you are looking at comes to your home to perform a professional estimate. This will make sure that the price they quote is as accurate at possible.
6. Do they have a financing plan?
Let’s say you can’t afford to have your kitchen remodeled but you still want to any ways. Reputable kitchen contractors all have financing plans in place. Some will even work with you to create zero interest financing plans (like us).
