Recommended Remodel Contractors

Finding remodel contractors you can trust can be a difficult task. Having confidence in your contractor is crucial if you want your remodel to come out as expected. Perhaps even more importantly, a skilled, experienced contractor can anticipate problems and make cost-saving suggestions — that means less stress for you. Piscitello Home Center recommends the following contractors, provided you do additional research before making your final decision.

Why We Recommend These Contractors

As remodeling pros, we spend a lot of time working alongside other industry experts. It’s important to us that everyone — even if you’re not our customer — has a great experience. After all, this is your home we’re talking about. You deserve to know who’s working on it and love the outcome. And all of that becomes more difficult if your contractor is subpar. 

The ever-changing nature of the industry and contractor businesses in particular means we can’t specifically recommend or endorse any of the service providers listed below. That said, we do check the references of each contractor before adding them to our list. Part of our due diligence is verifying whether those contractors adhere to the same standards we’ve upheld since 1958. 

How To Choose A Remodel Contractor 

The best way to narrow down the field is to see which contractors trusted sources recommend. That’s what this list is, of course, but you can also ask friends, family, or even your neighbors. Still, you’ll need to put in some effort to double-check references and see whether this contractor is not only good but also a great fit for your needs. 

  • Ask how long they’ve been in business. There are many newer contractors who are quite skilled at what they do but working with an experienced team has its benefits. Contractors who’ve been on the job for a while are more likely to have established relationships with manufacturers as well as subcontractors. That could mean lower prices for you and more talent on-site.
  • Review their credentials. Contractors are required to hold certain licenses to stay in business. Regulations vary from state-to-state or sometimes even city-to-city, but in general, you want to see a license from the state contractors board. That proves the contractor had to meet requirements, such as passing competency tests and having insurance. There are also trade-specific licenses for electricians, HVAC technicians, and plumbers, among others.
  • Check references.If a contractor gives you the names of satisfied clients willing to vouch for them, take the time to follow up. See what the homeowners have to say. Ask questions if you have them but keep it short and to the point. You’re just looking for verification.
  • Get everything in writing.Bid prices, payment schedules, the specific scope of work, warranties, dispute resolution — all these details should be put in writing before you hire a contractor. You deserve to know what you’re paying, what you’re getting in return, and how long it will take.
  • Get multiple bids. Price matters so don’t be afraid to shop around. Remember, though, that the cheapest bid isn’t necessarily the best. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Ask about the team. Who’s going to do the actual work? Is the company you’re hiring subcontracting everything out, or do they have a core team that works on every job? If there’s a problem, who’s responsible for the fix? 

Be wary of any contractor who can’t come up with references or who doesn’t return your phone calls promptly. How you’re treated now could very well be a preview of how the entire project will go.
