How to Choose a Contractor for a Home Renovation

By: Danny Lipford

When preparing for a major renovation to your home, it’s important to choose a reliable contractor to do the job. To find a good contractor in your area, start by calling your local Home Builder’s Association and ask for a recommendation based on the type of work that needs to be performed. Additional resources are available at National Association of Home Builders website.

Another option is to check with people you know who have had remodeling done to see which contractors they have used and whether they were pleased with the results. By researching your options, you’ll find the perfect contractor for the remodeling or renovation project in your home.
