An in-home consultation allows the contractor to discuss your vision with you in depth and to assess your remodeling project with you.
After all, how can a contractor provide you with a realistic price range for your kitchen or bath remodel if they don’t actually visit your home and review the room in question?
A free in-home consultation is a courtesy that any professional remodeling contractor should offer, especially before they provide a preliminary price range for your job. For instance, when assessing the room, a contractor may notice some issues or concerns that may affect the outcome you desire. They may also be able to make suggestions specific to the room that will save you money or give you an alternative design option.
For the first initial appointment as a client, you shouldn’t have to drive to a contractor’s office, wait until they’re ready to see you and then try to describe your remodel vision without being able to show them the room you want to remodel.
K B Design and Remodeling offers free in-home consultations, and I know that most of my peers do as well. If you come across a contractor who refuses to come to your home, you might want to think twice before requesting a price quote from his organization. If he won’t extend you this simple courtesy, where else will he cut corners in customer service?
