Looking at a prospective remodeler's company website and
social media accounts for photos of their work is one good way.
Visit review sites like HomeAdvisor, Houzz, etc., to see more
pictures and to read reviews of remodeling companies. Take
the good with the bad when reading online reviews and focus
on the descriptions of experiences and qualities that are most
important to you as a customer. Ask for referrals from friends,
family, neighbors, coworkers, and others who may have had
remodeling work done with the companies you are researching.
It is recommended that you get no more than 2 -3 quotes
since anything over that could be overwhelming. It is important that when getting more than 1 quote to make sure they are
apples for apples and they all are using the same types of products. For example: If you are considering a kitchen remodel
and one company quotes you on the higher end cabinet and
the other on the lower end it is clear that the lower end should
be less dollars. This makes it difficult to really compare if you're
going for strictly price since it is not the same quality.

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.
