What positive things do I look for in a remodeling company?
Look for a company eager to give you solid, local references and affiliations and to show you some of their work (even in progress). You want a company who often does the kind of work you are considering (Kitchens, Baths, additions, etc.) and of the quality you hope for. The companies you interview should readily explain how projects are run and in some cases even introduce you to selected personnel. A professional contractor is one who takes care of its employees and operates as a business with appropriate documentation, permits and licenses.
