How to Hire a Contractor

Remodeling Trend

Today’s interior design trends are moving towards remodeling. Interest rates and home values are forcing people to reside in homes longer. People are remodeling kitchens, baths and fixing up their lower levels to accommodate growing families, lifestyle or taste changes.

Choosing a Contractor

Choosing a contractor can be a tough job. Clients need to have a plan or a design in order to get proper bids. Ellen Kurtz Interiors can provide just that. We interview clients determining what to do with the space they have, to fit their lifestyle. We then draw plans to show a contractor and other subcontractors ideas on which to bid. Choosing finish materials and supplying spec sheets help in the bid process.

Staying in Budget

Communication is key in hiring a contractor. Asking the right questions and specifying all materials of the project scope will help ensure the project will stay in budget.

Contract Negations

Be sure that a contract spells out all work that will be performed. Also be sure to ask for insurance and license. A contractor will handle all of the building permits.
