How to Hire the Best Kitchen Remodeler

When hiring a kitchen contractor to oversee your remodel, these basic steps could mean the difference between total confidence and a complete nightmare.


Word of mouth will always win hands down, and it is one of the best ways to find a fully qualified professional to perform the project. Ask family, neighbors and friends that have had positive experiences with such contractors. Ask them what made it such a positive experience, how the contractor coped with problems, and if they would use the same contractor in the future.

Check Credentials

With referrals in hand, perform some research, whether it be a phone call, or a visit to the professionals website. Find if they have all the necessary licenses from state and local government bodies, in addition to any designations from associations like the National Kitchen and Bath Association, to name just one. Look for a kitchen remodeler that has had extensive course work and has completed exams to obtain certain certifications. Note, though, that not all certifications are the same. Do some research to find out what the requirements are.

Interview Potential Candidates

Narrow down your list of potential candidates, and then do interviews. Try to keep it down to only 3 contractors, due to the fact things may get a bit confusing with more. How a candidate answers all your questions is very important; however, remember, communication works both ways. Candidates need to ask questions too.

Check all References

Request to see some of their jobs. If you approve, ask for references and contact them all. Ask them how well the contractor executed the project. Were they within schedule and within their budget range? Were they pleased with the finished job? Was there something which may have been done differently?

Always remember, when hiring a remodeler, you are in fact purchasing a service, and not the product. Quality service determines the quality of a completed job.
