Top 5 Reasons Why Most Kitchen and Bathroom Consultations Are a Waste of Time. There is no dearth of contractors in the country that will be ready to assist you in your kitchen or bathroom remodeling project. Unfortunately, many of these consultations with numerous incompetent contractors prove to be just a waste of time and money. So, where do things go wrong? Let’s take a look at some of the prominent reasons:
Reason #1 –Spending Little Time Knowing Your Exact Needs
A typical consultation with some bathroom and kitchen remodeling contractors lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes. A kitchen or bathroom remodel is a complex project. This is why contractors must spend sufficient time getting to know you and your needs to provide you with a fair estimate.
Reason #2 – Poor Design Skills
Ordinary contractors don’t know how to implement software and technology necessary to create a stunning and functional design. No wonder, many contractors lack design expertise.
Some contractors tell homeowners to hire their own designer, while other inadequately trained ones will give you a “rough sketch” that they have done (typically with a pencil on any paper they can find).
These are the warning signs that your project is in trouble. It is almost certain that your remodel will result in a major disappointment if you don’t have a clear plan and a well-thought-out design right at the start.
Reason #3 – The Contractor Doesn’t Show You the Product Samples
Most remodeling contractors rarely show you any product samples in your first consultation. And even when they do bring them, the samples are not sufficient enough to make an informed decision.
Being able to examine real samples of a product is very important. Seeing it in person and in your own home is much more convenient and effective than viewing it online or at an outlet.
Reason #4 – Lack of Financing Options
Sadly, many contractors are not experienced enough to calculate even something as basic as an accurate estimate. So, don’t count on them to provide you with the financing options. No doubt, some homeowners already have solid plans in place on how to finance their remodel. But for others, a shortage of financing options is a major hurdle.
Reason #5 – They Don’t Follow-Through
After conducting some meetings with the contractors, most homeowners are shocked at how many contractors do not follow up with them. That’s certainly an irresponsible behavior and just shows that they’re not serious about your project. Unfortunately, we have heard about businesses failing on something so simple so many times.
They spend around 20 minutes with you; measure a few areas in your house, and soon after leave your home saying, “I’ll call you with an estimate.” Then… there’s absolutely nothing. They won’t contact you again until you do, and sometimes they won’t call you back at all.
(We don’t recommend doing business with remodelers who will harass you for providing you something as basic as a quote. If they’re showing such unprofessionalism even before starting your project, you can imagine how will your project turn out in their hands?).
An incompetent contractor may provide you a quote in a few cases. It then becomes a question of… how are those prices determined? Considering, the short time they spent at your home, it’s almost impossible that that you could get an accurate quote from them. Cost disputes are likely to follow in such cases later on. If possible, you should avoid such headaches at all costs.
