Remember that choosing the right professional or firm is a matter of thorough research. Your home is likely going to be the most valuable asset so don’t take chances with it unnecessarily. Interview these professionals, inspect their past experience and skills and ask for references. Ask tough questions of them and their clients as well. Make sure that if something goes wrong, they are able to pay for their mistakes through their insurance. Also, remember that whomever you choose to remodel or redesign your kitchen knows you and your family needs better than your yard worker.
Don’t let the designers change anything else in your property without your permission unless the contract is in writing. That’s the nature of the process. Any changes should be in the order and signed by you prior to work. The information should be clearly described and specify how much the project will cost. All professionals who are working in your kitchen should have current liability and worker’s compensation. The insurance part protects their employees while they are working on your property and saves you from spending money for their mistakes. If you are still worried about your liability should someone get injured in your property during the work, talk to your insurance carrier. Ask to see the designers’ license. Some professionals carry their license with then even after expiry of suspension notice. So make sure to call licensing agent to verify its status.
