Understanding a Construction Estimate Can Keep Your Project On Track
When planning a home remodeling project or considering new home construction, estimating the cost of the project can determine a lot. Understanding what goes into a remodel estimate and what to look for before signing on the dotted line can mean the difference between a streamlined, successful home remodel, or a project that goes off track from the start.
Here are a few things to look for in a construction estimate, and from the construction company that is drafting it for you.
Remodel Estimate Comes From a Licensed Contractor
Make sure that the home remodeling contractor(s) that are preparing construction estimates for you are licensed to do work on your home. A licensed contractor acts as a safety net from other contractors because A) A contractor can’t obtain a license without a minimum amount of industry experience; B) License applicants are subject to a criminal background check, and can’t have any outstanding contracting complaints; and C) A licensed contractor has passed exams and completed all applicable paperwork as required by the state.
DM Building is fully licensed and insured: License No. 939850.
Home Remodel Estimate Comes From an Insured Contractor
Being a licensed contractor is one thing, but being insured is another. Injuries can occur on any home remodel project or new home construction site. If a contractor doesn’t possess the proper insurance, the homeowner can be held liable for damages. Make sure your construction estimate is prepared by a contractor that is both licensed and insured, such as DM Building.
Construction Estimate Is Prepared By Contractor That Pulls All Required Permits
Pulling all building permits ensures that any construction done on your home will be done properly to comply with all codes. Some contractors may ask homeowners to get the permits themselves—this can be a red flag that the contractor isn’t able to pull the permits because they’re unlicensed, or not licensed for the work being performed. A homeowner can be held liable for construction done illegally on their home, if permits are not met.
DM Building always pulls all required permits.
