How many references should I check when it comes to home remodeling?

Unfortunately, when today’s consumer goes to invite a remodeling contractor (or any contractor) into their home, the decision is usually based on hearing from one neighbor or friend that the contractor did a good job.

When you are making a decision to hire someone to work one of your largest investments (your home), it makes more sense to get a minimum of 4 references as we find anyone can have a “good day”. The advice from the National Association of Remodelers (NARI) and other respected organizations is to properly vet contractors by talking to 3-4 references who have contracted these people and look at their work. If they cannot provide hundreds of examples of their work, do you really know for sure?

Charlotte Handyman Business growing like crazy…why?

Value Remodelers and Handyman Services (www.valueremodelers.com) is an Archadeck of Charlotte company. They are seeing record growth and the question is why in an economy that is shaky at best? The reasons they can find are several. Number one, people are staying in their homes longer and the homes are aging and in need of care.

Finally, the company that does this kind of volume creates a competitive advantage to get more referral business provided it does quality work and service. Value Remodelers often services client on just 2 days notice and has full service tradesman that can do everything from drywall repair and rotten wood replacement, to electrical and plumbing fixes.
