How to Choose a Contractor You’ll Feel Confident With: 3 Factors to Consider

There are a lot of decisions to make when you’re planning your kitchen or bathroom remodeling project. You’ll need to decide on what type of flooring you want, what type of appliances to install, and color scheme will go best. However, the most important decision you’ll make will be which contractor to work with.

At Mission West Kitchen and Bath, we’re proud of our reputation and the many clients we’ve helped over the years. We want to be sure that every client who chooses us knows exactly how to choose the right contractor for their needs. No matter which kitchen and bath contractor you use, these are the three things you should consider.

  1. Are they licensed?
  2. Anyone who refers to themselves as a contractor must be licensed. However, you might be surprised by how many companies or individuals will offer to remodel your home without mentioning that they’re not a licensed contractor. A handyperson with a lot of experience can help with many things, but when it comes to installing drywall, helping you select countertops, laying floor, installing your bath fixtures, etc., you need a company or individual who is licensed.

    Why? Because a license shows that they’ve completed schooling. It shows that they’ve been tested on the things they claim to know how to do. Most importantly, it shows that they have the experience to provide a high level of work. If you need an attorney, you would turn to someone who’d passed the Bar – not someone who’d simply watched a lot of crime shows. The same applies to construction – turn to a company that can back up their claims.

  3. Do they have experience in the specific type of work you need done?
  4. Any contractor will have experience with construction but do they have experience with the specific type of construction you need help with? For example, when you want your kitchen remodeled, you likely don’t want to work with a company that works exclusively on building garages. As you consider your options, don’t just ask about experience – ask about experience that’s relevant to your project.

  5. Do they have the type of materials you want?
  6. You want to shop directly with a company that offers the right type of materials and products. At Mission West Kitchen and Bath, we offer a wide range of cabinets, tiles, bathroom fixtures, appliances, and much more. When you want to shop in a showroom that has everything you need, then you want to work with us.
