A  home remodeling consultation is essential to help your contractor understand your wants and needs.

Choosing a reliable contractor is one of the most important decisions you can make when undertaking a home remodeling project. After reviewing your referrals, completing your research, and asking your initial questions, it is time to move on to the next step—consultations. Home remodeling consultations can help you ensure a contractor is a good fit before signing a contract. But what exactly does a consultation entail? Here is what you can expect during your phone and in-person consultations.

Home Remodeling Consultation #1: Phone Consultation
After contacting a contractor, you will schedule a phone consultation to speak with a designer about your overall goals. During this conversation, the designer will typically ask you about the details of your project, the space’s challenges, and your vision. Your phone consultation is also the best time to discuss your schedule and budget, so you can ensure your plans are realistic and that the contractor can meet your needs. After you decide if the contractor could be suitable for your project, you will work with them to schedule an in-person consultation.

Home Remodeling Consultation #2: In-person Consultation
Next, the contractor comes to you. Your in-person consultation allows the designer to tour your space, giving them a better understanding of your project. During the in-person consultation, you can physically show the designer what you like and do not like about the space. This consultation is also your opportunity to ask them for their recommendations and learn about any obstacles they foresee. After this consultation, the contractor will be able to provide you with a more personalized estimate to help you decide how you wish to proceed.
