An experienced basement remodeling contractor can remake an unused area into a beautiful living space. This is not a small project, so you’ll want to vet a few companies. Most will provide free quotes, but you’ll want to do research and have a list of questions ready when a basement remodeling contractor arrives at your door.
What To Look For in a Basement Remodeling Contractor
Even if a good friend refers a basement remodeling contractor, you’ll still want to look into the company’s background. See how long it has been in business and check to see that it is licensed and insured. You can also check for reviews and customer testimonials.
- Ask if the basement remodeling contractor does basement finishing. A basement remodel uses the structure’s existing bones, like drywall and plumbing, but a basement finishing can include new framing and walls. Some companies do one or the other, but at B&E Construction, we specialize in both.
- Check references and visit jobs. A respected basement remodeling contractor will share references and photos of their past work. It would be nice to visit the previous jobsites, but this may not be possible when the work you want to look at was done in private homes.
- Inquire about staff and warranties. If a basement remodeling contractor subcontracts some of their work, make sure those companies are also licensed. All of the work and materials used should have warranties.
Also important: If you leave a message, someone from the company should get back to you quickly. If you have to wait too long to have a message returned, move on to the next contractor.
