Home Remodeling Contractors and You: Effective Communication

As the design manager for Titus Contracting, Scott Rajavuori has worked with a wide variety of clients through the years. Thanks to this experience, he has some great advice to share about how to effectively communicate with your home remodeling contractors in St Paul.

Ask Questions

Your home remodeling contractors should be ready and willing to answer any questions you have. You should never be in the dark about what the contractors are doing or what phase of the remodeling process your home is in. If you don’t understand any portion of the contract or the work they are doing, ask! Being well-informed is also helpful to the contractors because then there are no surprises for anyone after the job is completed.

Be Clear about Your Budget

This ties into the first section – be sure to ask questions and be clear about your budget. Discuss your home remodeling contractor’s rates and make sure you understand the charges. Planning ahead and thinking about how much you can spend will help with every step of the home remodeling process.

Use Pictures, Not Words

If you have a design idea in mind, find some pictures either online or in a magazine that show what you want. Sometimes showing, rather than telling, is a more effective way to communicate with your home remodeling contractors. The contractors can get a much better idea of what you want and how you are visualizing the end result.

Have Regular Discussions

Make sure you’re meet with your home remodeling contractors on a regular basis to discuss your project. This is a great way to get updated on its progress and to make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to the design, budget and timeline. (This is also a great time to ask questions!)
