    Start with an idea of what you want to do, and make a prioritized list of your needs, wants, and dreams. Collect photos

    from magazines, books, and web sites that show things that

    you like. Its helpful if you identify what it is that you like about

    each photo. The more clearly you can describe your project, the more likely you will be able to clearly convey your goals to

    a remodeling professional.

    Think about how you plan to use the remodeled space. Be sure to consider furniture size and placement, traffic

    patterns through the home, lighting and electrical needs, etc.

    Calculate your budget, including construction costs, furnishings, and landscaping (if applicable). Talk to lenders and

    find out how much you can borrow and at what cost.

    Get referrals from the Builders & Remodelers Association of Greater Ann Arbor and the Washtenaw Remodelers Council. Also talk with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers who

    have remodeled their home. Architects, trade contractors, building material suppliers, home inspectors, and lenders are also great sources for referrals.

    Interview at least three remodelers regarding your project. Some questions you may want to ask include:

    Does the remodeler carry insurance that protects you from

    claims arising from property damage or jobsite injuries?

    How long has the company been in business under this

    name? Longevity suggests financial security.

    Does the remodeler have a track record of successful

    projects similar to the one you are planning?

    Does the remodeler actively participate in a trade

    organization such as BRAG Ann Arbor?

    This and similar organizations help to keep their members

    informed about new products, construction techniques, business practices, and industry issues. Participation demonstrates a remodelers commitment to professionalism and the remodeling industry. Check references from previous and current customers of the remodeler. Make sure you ask the remodeler for this list.

    Some of the questions to ask these contacts are:

    Would you hire this company again?

    Did the remodeler maintain a neat jobsite, and clean up regularly? Did the remodeler haul away debris in a timely manner?

    Did the remodeler order materials in a timely manner so

    that your job could be started and completed on time and within budget?

    Did you find the remodeler easy to work with? Did the

    remodeler keep you informed as the job progressed?

    The relationship between a remodeler and client is a very important one. You need to feel comfortable with the remodeler and confident that this company will do the work

    according to your plans, budget, and specifications. Do you

    feel that this person listens to you and understands your needs and wants, and can work with you to ensure that the plans for

    your job accurately reflect your expectations and your budget? For more detailed information to help you plan get started on your remodeling project, visit www.BRAGAnnArbor.com or call the BRAG Ann Arbor office at 734-996-0100.
