Dreaming of a new bedroom or a new office space, thinking about renovating your home or office is always fun, but choosing the right renovating contractor is the most important part. This person will rip out your walls and spend your money to redesign all the interior. So, it is really important that you trust the contractor enough to embark on the remodeling journey together.

We all have hear nightmare stories of how office renovation got wrong when someone was chained up with a wrong contractor. Don’t be one of them! Ask the following questions before hire a renovation contractor for your project.

Ask for References

When looking for cheap renovation in Singapore, customers are the best source of information. So, don’t be afraid to ask your potential contractor to provide references of their previous customers. Also, you need to become a detective yourself to search for the background of the contractor.

When you talk to their previous clients, based on their review and feedback, you learn a lot about how the contractor operates, what is delivery time, how well do they communicate during the project and more. Also, you get an idea of whether their previous clients trust the contractor or not.

What is the cost breakdown?

Don’t just ask for an overall price estimate. You should also ask the price of each material they are going to use in the whole project. If the prices are not itemized, you don’t know what they charging for. They can easily charge you more money without you knowing. So, always ask them about the cost of materials as well.

Reputation in this field

When hiring a renovation contractor, you are basically paying for their skills and their relationship with other contractors and suppliers. If the reputation of the contractor is not good, then you will face a lot of trouble during the whole project. First, you won't be able to fully trust the contractor. Second, the contractor might not be able to get the material you need for the project and last, he might not fully commit to the project.

Permits

Permits are required for most professional renovation jobs. This ensures that the building inspector has reviewed and approved the project. Don’t hire a contractor who is willing to work without a permit, this will cause a lot of problem in the future.

Timeframe

After hearing their schedule and assessing the project’s need, you need to work together to set out an approximate start and end dates of the project. If you need to wrap up the project by a certain date, you need to set your expectations upfront. In renovation work, delays are common and project rarely wrap up in tidy fashion.

Person in charge

Before hiring a Commercial Renovation Contractor In Singapore, ask whether the person you are talking to is the person in charge. If not, then you who will be supervising the whole project. It is important for you to know the person in charge in order to maintain proper communication. 

A detailed contract

Ask the contractor to produce a detailed contract, which includes payment schedules, timetables, materials to be purchased, and other essential items. Before you give any money or the works start, you must have a signed contract in your hand. An inexperienced or fake contractor will not even talk about a contract.

Finding the best renovation contractor is difficult if you don’t ask the right questions. So, keep these questions in mind when you start looking for a renovation contractor.
