If you’re planning a home renovation, the first step is finding a quality renovator to help you undertake your project. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when doing a renovation is failing to do research on quality renovators and hiring a company that ends up doing low quality work or running your budget dry. A good renovator will help you start and finish your project on time, on budget and with the utmost care and professionalism. Enter: Gentek’s Premium Renovators, leading contractors across the country who meet strict quality, performance and insurance rules.

3 Tips for Finding the Best Renovator for You
1. Conduct Interviews
You want to be comfortable and confident when choosing a renovator to work on your home. You’ll be spending quite a bit of time with your general contractor, so it’s important that you get along with them, can communicate with them and can trust them. Make sure to ask how unexpected issues or differences might be handled, if they’re licensed and insured, and if they’ll be hiring subcontractors to work on your project.
2. Look at Portfolios
As part of your interview process, make sure to have a look at each renovator’s portfolio for past clients. Looking at their previous jobs will give you a good sense of the work they do and what you can expect for your project. You can also go a step further and ask if the renovator would be able to give you references for the previous projects so you can ask them about how the process was for them.
3. The Right Timing
Timing also has to be right for your renovation project. Contractors can rarely get started on projects right away- most quality renovators are booked months in advance. Make sure to ask them when they can get started, as well as how long they think it will take to complete your project. If it’s a big project, it’s usually wise to add about six to eight weeks onto that to help manage expectations, as unforeseen incidents can occur.
