Buying remodeling services is most similar to buying artwork or graphic design work. Your home is the canvas with a painting already begun. We’re the artist who will put our skills to work to finish the beautiful project.
Remodeling is not like buying a car or dining room set. You cannot simply compare prices and choose the one that requires the lowest investment. Because of the many types of home styles and the range of professionalism within remodeling contractors, there is no way to compare apples to apples. Apples to llamas is more like it. In fact, remodeling is probably as far from commodity buying as you can get.
But if we wanted to compare, I would say that hiring a remodeling contractor is most similar to buying artwork or graphic design work. Your home is the canvas with a painting already begun. We’re the artist who will put our skills to work to finish the beautiful project.
Just like artists and graphic designers, each professional remodeler will have a different creative mindset. This means that if you were to talk to several remodelers, each will probably design a completely different solution to your problem.
And just like artists, each remodeler will have his or her own taste and skill level. It is really up to you, the homeowner, to find a remodeler that shares your vision for the final result. So look at your search for just the right remodeler as the search for an artist for your home. Here are some steps to follow:
- Begin by looking at the company portfolio. Ask how they created the solution to the particular remodeling problem.
- Let us be creative. After all, we spend our working lives designing projects with our signature remodeling process that will help you make the most of the possibilities.
- Remember, just like the more skilled and popular artists can command higher prices, so might you be asked to invest a bit more for the remodeler who can deliver the best product.
