Tips to Choosing a Home Remodelers And Contractors

Fri, Jun 3, 2016

If you are planning to remodel your home in the near future, you may be worried about the stress and financial burden that may come about when you begin the project. Many homeowners get in over their heads and have no idea where to start when it comes to remodeling their home. These are the things that makes it most stressful and time-consuming. Here are some helpful tips that may help your home remodeling project go smoothly.

Plan for the Big Picture

One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make when they are remodeling their homes is that they do not plan ahead. Making decisions fast and as early as possible can help to prevent future delays in the project. This is also a great way to keep your team on budget. Knowing what the costs are ahead of time will help you to be prepared for those expenses.

Other factors to consider are things such as repair expenses, long-term maintenance, and loss of energy. When you are calculating your budget, it is important to keep these factors in mind to save you money and time in the long run.

Hire Good Help

There is nothing more important than making the right decisions in terms of hiring remodelers and contractors. You will want to make sure that the remodelers you hire have three or more years of reputable experience and a clean record with the Better Business Bureau as well as the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. Out of all of these factors the most important one to consider is finding a remodeler that you can trust to handle the job.

If at all possible, make sure you are consistently visiting job sites that they may be currently working on. You will be able to learn a lot about this team by how they keep a clean work site and take safety measures.

Creating Your Contract

It is crucial that you make sure that the contract you have is very detailed as to avoid any legal issues in the future. Regardless, it may be wise to hire an attorney to go over the contract to make sure all of the details are covered.

Remodeling can be both stressful and exciting. If you go into it knowing those two things then you will be able to breeze through the process as quickly and as stress-free as possible.

Shaw Co. Remodeling. We just did a bath/shower remodel with Shaw and are not only pleased with the results but with the degree of communication with Shaw reps and the subcontractors. You could tell they are all very experienced, not anyone’s first rodeo. Recommended.

Shaw Remodeling was extremely professional in their execution of our master bathroom remodel this year. They made great suggestions in the showroom and carried our choices into the design and completion of the project. The workmanship was very good and the project was completed in the timeframe as promised. I will be using them again!

We used Shaw Company to remodel our master bathroom. Everyone we met with was very professional and helpful. Patrick helped us with the initial design phase, Brittany with the material selections, Anthony oversaw the actual construction, and Nancee checked in with us regularly to keep us informed and make sure we were pleased with everything! I really appreciated that they had a design center so I didn't feel overwhelmed with that part of the process. Additionally, Anthony did a great job of communicating with us daily through the process and making sure things were done right. It was a great experience and I enthusiastically recommend Shaw Company Remodeling!

Our kitchen remodel took 8 weeks to complete. Salvador and his crew worked hard. They were knowledgeable and professional, as well as, friendly throughout the process. I had a special request for the color of my cabinets. Salvador got it done. They are beautiful and unique. I was always able to reach Salvador at anytime and he always took care of the situation. The office staff was so helpful, especially in the selection process.. Everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Remodeling, the office staff, Salvador and crew for your remodeling needs, big or small. We will definitely call them again.

Shaw Company completely renovated and installed a new kitchen, floors and staircase at my house. Throughout the project everyone was very professional and helpful, keeping us updated on project development, not an easy task during Covid. Nancy and Anthony were always on hand to answer any questions and offer advise.
They provide quality workmanship, at a reasonable price, I would definitely recommend working with them for your next project.

Due to broken leg/fall I am in a wheel chair for the next 4 months and required our bathroom to be remodeled in a hurry. Eric committed to complete the job at a reasonable price and a short time frame. The work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. All employees were great and very professional. I will use Shaw again for future work on my home and have no problem recommenting the company to others.

This is my SECOND contracted job with Shaw's. They did a complete kitchen last year and I chose them based on a recommendation I received as well as my own evaluation. They did a terrific job, Salvador and his crew. Brittany was extremely helpful in the planning and setup of the decisions we had to make. So, one last project to complete to update our home, the Master Bathroom. Again, I chose Shaw's and did not consider other companies this time as I wanted the excellence and quality that comes with Salvador and his team. I think he has the best tile guy-Antonio, best dry wall-Rafael, and electrician /plumber in Marcos, in the business. I cannot go without recognizing Robert that starts the demo, everyone is just absolutely terrific to work with. When I made the call to Brittany, she ask who I wanted to do the job, of course, I responded in saying Salvador and his team. Salvador built my cabinets in both jobs as I knew the quality would be second to none. Shaw's is not the cheapest, nor have I found them the most expensive, but whoever is thinking about a major investment in their home, they should consider the quality and service before anything else. Please feel free to contact me if anyone has any further questions. Regards, Mike and Teresa Willis.

We hired Shaw Co to redo our shower. We had previously received quotes from two other shower companies but we felt they were being less than honest with us and were pricier than they needed to be. Shout out to Patrick and Fernando, Jr!

These guys at Shaw are great: they'll do what they say they're going to do, and they do it on time. For the next project, they're at the top of the list.

I had a wonderful experience with my recent renovation, timely help, many choices in the showroom, professional workers in my house, reasonable cost. This was the second time I used this company. Granite countertop, tile flooring, lighting, paint, tile backsplash, sink. I feel like I have a whole new house! And I didn't have to take off work, GREAT JOB, Shaw!

I am thrilled with the complete master bath remodel that Alain & his incredible crew from Shaw recently completed in my home. It was a great experience from start to finish. This company truly works as a team, communication channels are all open. Even when a hiccup occurred…they addressed it immediately & moved forward. The crew was professional & positive…really a pleasure to have them in my home. Alain went above & beyond in every aspect including making sure I was not simply satisfied with the work but truly happy. I also want to thank his crew member Sammy. He did an exceptional job & really kept the work site clean every day. I will absolutely use Shaw again for future projects.
