Choosing The Right Contractor for Your 2024 Home Remodel

Is transforming your space into the home of your dreams on your 2024 to-do list? Choosing the perfect Maryland design and build firm can make a difference. As 2024 peeks its head around the corner, there is no better time to start thinking about resolutions for the new year. Below, we discuss how choosing the right contractor for your design build can help you elevate your living space this year.

Get Recommendations from Friends and Family

When searching for a contractor to handle your Maryland remodeling project, the value of word-of-mouth cannot be overstated. Start by asking for recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues who have undertaken similar projects. Is there a specific contractor they recommend for a particular type of project? Not only can they help you by telling you who to reach out to but they can also share exactly who to avoid, hopefully saving you time and money in the long run. Some of the questions you may want to ask include:

  • Who do you recommend for this project?
  • Were your timelines and expectations clearly communicated (and met)?
  • Were you able to stay on (or close) to budget?
  • Did they use subcontractors or did they oversee most of the work themselves?
  • Are you satisfied with the final product/would you use them for another project?


Do Your Research

After you’ve done your due diligence by checking in with friends and family, the next step in choosing the right contractor for your design build is more research. Check potential design build contractors’ credentials to ensure they are licensed and insured in Maryland. A trustworthy contractor should be able to provide a  portfolio of their previous work that you can use to evaluate the quality of their craftsmanship and their capacity to execute your specific vision. They bring their expertise from the very beginning of the design phase through after the construction phase. Look for projects that speak to their design build approach from start to finish, including project management skills.

Compare Apples to Apples

When evaluating quotes, you must take the time to consider not just the cost but also the scope of work and proposed timelines. Quality matters. Be wary of bids that come in significantly lower than their competitors as they are likely not using comparable materials, workers, or skills. Likewise, a high bid doesn’t necessarily ensure quality work either. A reputable contractor should actively listen to your ideas and furnish clear and detailed plans to maintain your construction project on schedule, within budget, and to your expectations.
