A question that finds its way into the mind’s of clients when a remodeling project is being thought up is “how much will it cost?”. The budget set aside by clients not only determines the quality and quantity of work done, but also if the desired work can even be done in the first place. As such, it's imperative that financially wise decisions are made throughout a project. As a professional contractor, we believe that we help contribute to client's making financially smart decisions due to some of the benefits that we bring.
A benefit brought by professional contractors is that we are dedicated to always completing the highest quality of work. This also means we are adamant about upholding industry guidelines. There are specific conditions that must be met when construction is done. For example, floor joists, which are structural members used to frame an open space, must be spaced out in a certain way depending on the floor’s material, the load, and so on. If these requirements aren’t met, not only will this mean the client’s floor will be out of a code and eventually require fixing, problems will also arise such as springiness in the floor or visible sagging. Occurrences like this can happen in every part of the home, so it’s imperative to have a contractor that upholds these guidelines. There is a visual difference between when work is done to industry standards and when it is not. Upholding guidelines ensures the work done will last and look good, avoiding repair costs down the line while also satisfying the client's aesthetic needs.
Clear communication is another benefit brought by professional contractors. We go above and beyond to ensure that our client’s aren’t left in the dark in any aspect during their renovation project. This can include us sharing our professional recommendations during a project. Due to our experience, we are familiar with the different materials that can be used in a renovation project--this can include the material used for the floor, the type of door or window, and so on. This can lead to us recommending one material over another, even if the one material is what the client requested. If a client wants a certain material used because of its characteristics, we may be able to recommend a similar material that is cheaper. We can also steer client’s towards material that may be better fit for their needs--if the material they chose can’t fulfill the work they want done, or if there is simply a better alternative, we want our client’s to at least be aware of their options. This way, the client won’t learn of the alternative after the fact and regret the choice they made, and there won’t be any need for backtracking which would only add to the cost. As professionals, we can also recommend choices that will benefit client’s in the long run. We can tell a client that a certain type of window may be more costly now, but it will serve as an investment because the window helps with the home’s insulation, saving on energy cost. Knowing all the options is a prerequisite for choosing the best one.
Not every contractor will go through all these options or give their own recommendations, but we believe in the benefits of keeping our clients informed and communicating effectively with them. We also believe in the importance of the industry guidelines and how they translate to a good project. We want our clients to make the best decisions for themselves, and that means informing them of alternatives that can help them in terms of their budget as well as delivering the best work possible given that budget.
