The Best Remodelers in Middlesex County CT Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 

Connecticut requires only that residential remodelers in Middlesex County CT be registered with the state as Home Improvement Contractors in order to do residential remodeling or home improvement of any kind over $200. There is no test or exam for ability , merely a fee to be registered, so there is no state standard for competency among remodeling contractors.  Those peforming as commercial remodelers such as remodeling offices or store remodeling don't even require that mere state registration.

So obviously, simply being registered with the state as a Home Improvement Contractor is no indication that any particular remodeling contractor in Middlesex County CT is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all remodeling contractors in Middlesex County CT 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, good complaint record, verified worker's comp and liability insurance, verified state registration (residential remodeling only) only employees legal to work in the U.S., best business practices, and more.

Signs of the Best Remodelers in Middlesex County CT:


A remodeling project, whether home improvement or commercial remodeling, is often more complex than building from scratch. First, the remodeling contractor has to work within the limitations or peculiarities of the existing structure. Second, it's common for surprises to come up during the remodel, because some things can't be known until walls or ceilings are opened, floors taken up, etc. exposing hidden factors. The best remodeling contractors in Middlesex County CT are those with the experience to forsee these possibilities and the honesty to explain them to you at the outset, particularly, how it can affect the final cost of the remodel.

Respect and consideration for the customer are also hallmarks of good remodeling contractors since remodels often require work done while the customer is working or living in the space. For this reason, communicating their expected work schedule to you all along the way, keeping to it, or giving you notice on occasions where they can't, are all characteristics of the best remodeling contractors. Some remodelers in Middlesex County will even bring portable toilets for the use of the crew to avoid their use of your washroom (or your bushes). A customer living on site during a home remodeling proejct should expect some inconvience during the project, but again, respectful remodeling contractors will keep the potential inconvience to the minimum possible.

Attention to keeping the work site as neat as possible throughout, and cleaning thoroughly at the end of each day, like vacuuming dust and putting materials away, are behaviors that set some remodeling contractors far above the rest and result in much higher customer satisfaction with the finished project.


Home remodelers should know their crew well and be able to vouch for them as trustworthy especially when that crew has access to your home or family.

Of course attention to detail is important for quality work, but detail is critical right from the beginning with the cost proposal they prepare for you. Such a bid should detail the exact brands, fixtures, types of materials and amounts of each. If not, the bid might be quoting only the cheapest options so that later when you find out once the project is underway and you request better substitutions, the cost goes up. So good remodelers will go over those options with you before submitting a written proposal, and include your specific choices, and their costs, in the written bid.
