Top-Quality Materials


Some home remodeling companies that boast about low prices for their services are able to do so because they use low-quality materials that do not cost them as much as more reliable ones. Take a look at the brands the company you want to hire is associated with in order to confirm that the materials they will be using to remodel your home are of good quality. Low prices might be attractive, but low-quality materials may cause future headaches and financial strain down the road.

Licensed & Insured


If you choose a home remodeling company that isn’t licensed, how can you know they are capable or qualified to perform the work they do? Being licensed is a requirement in Maryland, but some companies may find ways around this and portray themselves as a professional business when they are not. Be wary of these companies and make sure to always confirm that the company you choose is licensed to perform home remodels.

The remodeling company you hire should additionally be insured so that, in case of any accidents or damages while the remodeling project is being completed, you will not incur additional costs or be liable for the damages. Any professional and trustworthy business will be insured, as their insurance helps protect both themselves and the customer if anything goes wrong.

Portfolio of Projects


One of the best ways to find out what you can expect from your home remodeling company is to take a look at the photos of their completed projects. A reputable remodeler will have a portfolio for you to peruse. Many businesses will have an online portfolio or gallery housed on their website for potential customers to get an idea of the types of projects they complete and the quality of work they provide. If you don’t see a portfolio of home remodeling projects the company has completed, reach out and ask if there are any photos available. You should be concerned if you find a company that does not have proof of completed remodels to provide for you.
