How to Select Your Building Renovation Contractors
Detailed Decisions – Make sure that you have full details of the type of house renovations you want to have done. Whether it is your kitchen or bathroom that you want to renovate, make a full list of all the ideas you have. Include all the permanent fittings like your bath or shower in your bathroom renovation or your sink and cabinets in your kitchen renovation. Also list all the finishing touches you want for your door handles and taps. Make your list as detailed as possible, even if you have multiple options for each section. Once you have a good idea of what you want to achieve with your improvements, it’s time to start looking for suitable renovation companies.
Sourcing Companies – Search the internet, speak to friends and family members and look in your local neighbourhood newspaper and make a list of all the building contractors that you can find who work in your area of Cape Town. Make a list of at least eight companies, as your next steps are a process of elimination.
First Contact – Now it’s time to make contact with the companies you have listed. Phoning each company is a great way to determine whether or not you like the Cape Town company. Make sure you ask the person on the phone for references and how many projects they have going at any given time. If the company takes forever to answer the phone or the person on the phone cannot provide you with the desired information quickly and with confidence, you can cross them off your list as they will not provide you with a professional service.
Shortlisted Potentials – Once you have phoned all the companies on your original list, you should have only three or four companies left. These are the companies that made you feel welcome over the phone and that handled the telephone query in a professional manner. Now you can phone the companies on the shortlist and make appointments for the building contractor to meet with you and quote you on your home extensions.
Interviewing – During the meeting with the renovations contractor make sure you give them all the details you have made a list of for your improvements so that they can provide you with a comprehensive quotation. Also listen to any renovation ideas or tips that the contractor gives you and make sure you ask them how long they believe the renovations are going to take to complete.
Hiring the Contractor – Make sure you get EVERYTHING in writing. The renovations must be detailed in full with all the costs, include all your extra finishes and any other additional requirements. Also make sure that the contract you sign includes the time frame and payment options. When you have everything in the contract and something does go wrong, you have the necessary paperwork to protect your interests.
