The Best Kitchen Bath Contractors Marin County CA Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire  

 

The state of California requires that kitchen and bath remodelers in Marin County CA be licensed by the state in order to do any kitchen/bath remodeling over $500.  Passing an exam is a license requirement but only one designated person within the entire company need do so.

So the state license is no guarantee that any particular kitchen or bathroom remodeler in Marin County CA is doing business ethically, providing real value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all contractors for kitchen bath remodeling in Marin County CA who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction with them as bathroom or kitchen remodelers, good complaint record, verified license, liability insurance, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

Questions To Ask Kitchen Bath Contractors in Marin County CA 


When choosing which kitchen bath remodelers in Marin County CA to hire, ask these questions about their experience, range of services, and procedures before hiring them: 

 

• How long have they been in business as kitchen or bath remodelers in Marin County CA specifically?

• If you're remodeling your kitchen, how many other kitchens remodels have they completed? If a bathroom, how many other bath remodels have they completed?

• Can they provide some examples of work similar to what you're asking for that they've completed?

• Can the kitchen bath contractors give you names and numbers of clients that you can call as references? (All remodeling companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their client references called  by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• What is project timeframe from estimate to completion?

• How will your access to and use of the kitchen or bathroom be effected during the project?

• Do they carry workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All kitchen bath contractors in Marin County CA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Will they provide a written estimate with complete detail of the exact brands, items including project numbers, fixtures, types of materials and amount to be used? (This is key because the cheapest kitchen & bath contractors often only seem cheapest because they have bid on the cheapest fixtures which you will either be unhappy with, or request be changed during the project, leading to an increase in cost.)

• Can they demonstrate to you that all their workers sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All kitchen bath contractors in Marin County CA bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)


• What are the manufacturer warranties on the fixtures or appliances they have quoted you?

• Do they give a written warranty on their labor aside from manufacturer warranties, and if so, for how long is it?

• Will permits be needed for the kitchen or bath remodel? If so, who will be responsible for getting those permits?

• Do their own employees actually complete the work, or do they hire subcontractors for the kitchen and bath remodeling?

• How often and when do they clean up throughout the project?


• What procedures do they use to minimize the impact the project will have on the rest of your home, i.e. dust, noise, etc?


• How will they communicate to you their expected schedule to be on-site, and how often?

• Will they provide a detailed, written contract specifying the exact materials, amounts, brands, product numbers, and scope of work?

• What processes do they use to price the project?


• Can they forsee any potential surprises that might occur in the middle of the project due to what they learn about the existing structure or materials, and by how much exactly might that affect the total cost?

 

When you've chosen the best kitchen bath contractors in Marin County CA for your specific needs and priorities, make sure they are licensed by the state. (All kitchen bath contractors in Marin County CA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
