What negative things should I look out for when selecting a remodeling company?
You look for the same warning signs as you would for any suspicious business. You should especially be concerned if the company gives you a quick low price and is in a hurry to start. Any pressure tactics are inappropriate and often a red flag, and if you attempt to perform due diligence on these types of companies, you'll often find there is no company at all. There are far too many competent, experienced, legitimate remodeling companies in the Chicago-land area for anyone to have to fall into the hands of unethical outfits.
