I Have a Remodeling Idea and Don’t Know Where to Start

We often have homeowners call our showroom who have a remodeling idea that simply do not know who to call or how to get started. With a wide variety of professionals in the home improvement industry such as: General Contractors, Carpenters, Kitchen and Bath Specialists, Etc., it can be difficult to know which type of company is best suited for your project. Here are some things to consider when starting your project, and why hiring a Professional Home Improvement Contractor is a great option:
1. Project Scope
With all of the DIY shows out there, it may be tempting to tackle the project yourself, however large scale projects may be more cost effective by hiring a professional remodeler. When you consider every aspect of a remodeling project – electrical, plumbing, space planning, ordering materials, installation, YOUR time, etc. – there is a lot of information you need to know! Hiring a professional remodeler means they can manage the entire project for you. Professional subcontractors are utilized to do specialty work, avoiding costly mistakes that are common in DIY situations. If you are looking at making minor cosmetic changes on your own, such as paint colors or cabinetry hardware, go for it! Are you planning something simple, but don’t have an eye for design? Consider calling a professional remodeling company that has on-staff designers and schedule a consultation. Quite often their designers can be hired on an hourly basis – and it can have remarkable impacts.
2. Budget
Between hiring a designer, purchasing materials, hiring subcontractors, and dealing with unforeseen expenses, a remodeling project can easily spiral out of control. Hiring an experienced, professional remodeling company will ensure that your project costs are controlled and within the established budget. They know what kind of work will need to be done and can provide a timeline and important details that are not as easy to determine on your own. Our unique Owner Assisted Remodeling (OAR) program allows for some of the work to be done by the homeowner, an option that can be a great way to help you stay on budget, with the added benefit of saying you did some of the work yourself!
3. Professional Certifications
Do a few initials after someone’s name, or an affiliation with a professional organization really make a difference when it comes to hiring a remodeler? Absolutely! Professional certifications show that your remodeler is equipped with additional knowledge of the industry, and will use that knowledge to make your project the best it can be. This means combining budget considerations, code requirements, functionality, creative solutions, and the most current products to give you the most for your money. Affiliation with a professional organization such as NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) means your remodeler is held to the highest of standards in the industry, and their company has a reputation for reliability and completing quality work.

Perhaps the most difficult step in accomplishing your remodeling project is making that very first phone call – especially when you don’t know WHO to call or what to say! Because every remodeling project and idea is unique to your home, your circumstances and your personality, consumers sometimes get frozen with the fear of calling the wrong person or company. Professional remodeling companies field these calls every day and are accustomed to working through the homeowners’ description of their vision. Pick a Home Improvement Contractor from the Milwaukee/NARI Member Directory and make the call. The company you call first may not be the best fit for your particular project, but as experts in this industry, they will be able to point you in the right direction, and perhaps even recommend a business associate that they would trust to do work in their own home – MAKE THE CALL!
