Want to know how long it takes to build a Single Family Home?
By Chris Lorder, President of Greater Manchester Nashua Home Builders & Remodelers Association
Are you among the growing number of home owners who are choosing to remodel their homes to fit their changing needs, rather than selling their home and buying another one? If so, you’ll soon learn that even simple remodels can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. With that type of investment on the line, it’s important to find a contractor you can trust.
As the home building and remodeling industry celebrates National Home Remodeling Month in May, here are the top five tips to ensure you make the right decisions when you find, evaluate and hire a remodeler.
- Always Go with a Pro
The best place to start is the Directory of Professional Remodelers at nahb.org/remodelerdirectory or contact the Greater Manchester Nashua Home Builders & Remodelers Association. A professional remodeler will uphold the highest professional and ethical standards in the industry. These sources can also help you find a remodeler who specializes in a specific type of remodeling if you need it, such as a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) to help modify your home to better suit you as you age, or a Certified Green Remodeler (CGP) to make your home more energy-efficient.
