Home improvements are always an exciting prospect, and garage additions are perhaps even more enticing. Whether it’s to increase the available storage you have or to transform the space into a tiny house for an older family member, you naturally want the best home builder for the job. Here’s how to improve your likelihood of getting that.
Request Their Portfolio
A good home improvement contractor will have plenty of photos from similar past projects to show you. You may also be given a list of references, allowing you to contact prior customers and gauge their satisfaction, both upon completion and months or even years later. Both of these can help you determine if a contractor can really give you the addition you’re looking for.
Once you’ve acquired estimates from several home construction companies, you’ll want to compare the bid you receive. While just looking at the bottom line is tempting, take the time to review what each estimate includes, from parts and labor to site clean-up.
Look for Attentive Service
One of the most important ways to know if the contractor you hire is a good match for your expectations is by considering how they interact with you. If your calls and messages are replied to promptly and you feel like you’re treated with courtesy and respect, you’re likely to have a good working relationship throughout your project.
