Meetings are open to all SAHBA members, however, an additional $110 is required for official Remodelers Council membership which provides additional benefits including, membership in NAHB-R, placement in “Remodelers Row” in the SAHBA Home Show and a listing in the Remodelers Council Directory (distributed publicly).

Tips For Hiring A Remodeler

1. Collect names of remodeling companies.
Start by searching the SAHBA Remodelers Council Directory for qualified remodelers to find a match for your project.
2. Discuss your project with a couple of remodelers.
Call a few remodelers from your list to discuss your project. Describe what you envision and ask the remodeler if they can provide background information on their expertise.
3. Ask if the remodeler has general liability insurance.
Ask important questions to help ensure you hire the best professional. Does the remodeler have a license? Do they have general liability insurance in case of an accident on the job? Do they guarantee their work? How do they handle any problems that may arise on the project?
4. Check the references and background of the remodeler.
Be sure to conduct some background research by checking with the Better Business Bureau, talking to their references, and asking if they are a trade association member (such as SAHBA Remodelers). Remodelers with these qualities tend to be more reliable, better educated, and more likely to stay on top of construction and design trends.
5. Don’t fall for the lowest bidder.
Many people may be lured by the lowest price thinking that they have found a great deal. These bids may be more costly in the end if the contractor is cutting corners. Often times, the lowest price may not ultimately provide the best value for your home remodel.
