Carefully select contractors for remodels

Better Business Bureau serving Canton Region and Greater West Virginia offer tips and advice for consumers to avoid fraudulent practices.

Many motivations for taking on a remodeling project include improving curb appeal, adding new features to a room, updating your interior, etc. Before starting a construction or remodeling project, homeowners need to consider carefully who should work in their home; find BBB-rated remodeling companies near you.  

There are also some specific things to consider before work begins.

Plan your project from start to finish. Talk to friends or family members who have had remodeling work that you like. Try to find pictures of what you like to show the contractor you want. If you are leaving any decisions up to the contractor, make sure you put the budget and material requirements in the contract. Be clear about who is responsible for ordering materials and when they need to do it. Remember that delivery and construction times may affect your schedule; decide what time workers may be in your home and where they should store any materials and equipment when they are not there.
