Reasons to Hire a Pro

Residential House Renovating your home should be a positive experience free from worry and stress and done right the first time. No job is too small to get assistance from a professional. Whether your project is small or very large, dealing with a professional contractor is the right way to approach any project. You should have full confidence in your contractor and know that you are getting the best. That's why you should choose a professional contractor.

The Canadian Home Builder's Association identifies the top 10 reasons to hire a professional.

1. From start to finish. A professional renovator will help you to put it all together from ideas to design, products to plans, and construction to completion.

2. Experienced advice. A professional renovator has the experience and knowledge to help turn your ideas into great results. They listen, make suggestions, and look for the best way of doing things.

3. Technical know-how. Professional renovators understand construction, how to deal with challenges and problems, and how to improve the comfort of your home.

4. Expert teamwork. Behind every professional renovator, there is a solid network of staff, sub-trades and suppliers ready to go to work for you.

5. A proven track record. Their business is an open book. You are invited to talk with past customers, look at their previous work and check out their reputation.

6. Accurate pricing. No need to be concerned about low-ball costing, inferior work or escalating prices once the job begins. Experienced renovators know what it takes to do something right and how much it costs, and they'll tell you upfront.

7. A written contract. Trust alone is not enough. Professionals back it up with a written contract that spells your project out in detail-what, how, who, when and how much.

8. Liability insurance and workers' compensation coverage. Better safe than sorry. In the unlikely event of an accident or damage to your own or neighbouring properties, a professional renovator's coverage protects you from liability and cost.

9. Warranty. Like any other consumer purchase, a professional renovation comes with a warranty on labour. And with professional installation, there is no risk of voiding the manufacturers' warranties on materials and products.

10. Service, service, service. Professional renovators are in business for the long term. They work hard to earn your trust and make every renovation a great experience.
