There are a few things you should start thinking about, and there are definitely several questions you should ask during your initial consultation. Here are a few suggestions on what to consider before, during and after your consultation with your remodeling contractor.


You more than likely already know what room or rooms you want to have remodeled before you hired your remodeling contractor. But do you have any specific ideas in mind for what you want in your new rooms? For example, if you are remodeling your kitchen, you might have your heart set on granite countertops. Start jotting down a list of your wants and needs, and gather some pictures from the Internet or from design magazines for inspiration. Make sure you show these to your remodeling contractor, so they get an idea of what you are looking for. A remodeling contractor like Carbide Construction will use as many of your ideas as possible when coming up with the design.


Your remodeling consultation is the best time to ask questions to clarify any part of the process that confuses you. For example, if you aren’t sure of who will handle getting the necessary building permits, then you should ask your remodeling contractor so you are on the same page. Carbide Construction gets the necessary building permits for our clients, so that is one less thing you will have to worry about. Be sure you take careful notes during the consultation in case you have to refer back to them at a later date.


After your remodeling contractor consultation is over, it is time to go back over your notes. If you are still unclear about some aspect of the remodeling process, you can call us any time to get your questions answered. You should also continue to gather ideas and inspiration for your remodeling project, and be sure to stay in touch with your remodeling contractor so you can continue to discuss your project, budget and time frame.
