A few tips on how to find a general contractor in Pembroke Pines:
Know what you want before getting an estimate – Don’t go into a project blind. It’s best to know exactly what you want so you can communicate clearly and let the contractor know exactly what you want and materials you want used.
Ask for references – If you know family or friends who have had work done, ask them for references. If they are happy with the work they received they will be more than happy to pass on that information. Fresh Floor Kitchen & Bath has been referred by many satisfied clients who appreciated our work and wanted to spread the word.
Ask what work will be done by the general contractor and what work will be done by subcontractors – You want to know that the contractor being hired has the staff to complete the work and not just using random “street workers.”
Sign a detailed contract – Make sure everything is detailed in the contract; from which materials will be used down to specific progress and payment dates. If not, it will be your word against the contractor’s. Fresh Floor Kitchen & Bath spells out everything when we take on a project. We want you to have peace of mind.
Don’t sign a contract for your entire renovation budget – Situations may arise, adding to the cost. Expect to spend up to 15% more than your initial budget.
Don’t pay more than 10% of the job total prior to the job starting – You don’t want a general contractor to use your money to finish another project then upcharge you. If the contractor does require more money upfront, get a detailed price list of where the money is going.
Get the correct permits – Although the contractor may be doing the work, it is still your responsibility to make sure all the permits are in order.
Don’t make the final payment until the job is 100% complete – Review the work; go over the work with the contractor in detail. Make sure everything is as you pictured it and you are completely satisfied. Have an inspector come out to look at the work. Then, and only then, do you make the final payment.
