The Best Remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 



The state of Florida requires home remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL to be licensed as home improvement companies by the state, requiring a minimum amount of experience, and passing a proficiency exam.  There is no such license requirement for commercial remodeling contractors in Miami-Dade County FL.

But even the state license for residential remodeling is no guarantee that any particular home remodeler in Miami-Dade County FL is even competent, is doing business honestly, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all commercial or home remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL 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 state license,  proof of liability and workers comp insurance for your protection, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.


Signs of the Best Remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL:

SPECIFIC EXPERIENCE WITH REMODELS

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 Miami-Dade County FL 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.

RESPECTFUL
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 Miami-Dade 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.

CLEAN
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.

SAFE

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.

DETAIL
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.


Home Remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL Add Value
Remodeling contractors in Miami-Dade County FL perform many aspects of home repair or specialized home remodeling. A straightforward way to add value to your home is to remodel areas where dated technology and style are most glaring.

Not only are home improvement companies in Miami-Dade County FL able to make an existing space appear larger, they can also create space by shifting square footage to one room from another or by doing a home addition. Finishing a basement is a great way to get extra living space without a home addition, or perhaps a wine cellar.

Other home remodeling contractors specialize in just certain aspects of home improvement like carports and patio covers, sunrooms and screen rooms in Miami-Dade County. But even contractors building patio covers or sun rooms in Miami-Dade County must be state-registered contractors.

Whether it's a big family room with a new fireplace or a new guest room, office, granny unit, garage, sunroom, patio cover, patio enclosure, screen room, carport, wine cellar, second story addition, or even a complete reconstruction of an older house, use the above list of home remodeling companies in Miami-Dade County proven through independent research as safer, more reliable, and who provide more value.


Added Value From Basement Finishing by Basement Remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL

Many homeowners have gotten additional value and a higher quality of life from their home with basement finishing in Miami-Dade County FL done by experienced basement remodeling contractors.   It's an immediate increase in living space often for less cost than a home addition. But the basement remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL must be experienced with the specifics to basement finishing, such as moisture control, checking floor joists, proper and safe ventilation, and what it will take to get a basement remodeling project to conform to local building codes for a space that is often starts as non-conforming.   The best basement remodeling contractors in Miami-Dade County FL will be able to show you previous finished basement remodeling projects.




Increased Popularity of Patio Enclosures, Sunrooms & Patio Covers in Miami-Dade County FL


Changes to more comfortably enjoy your outdoor space or to bring facets of the outdoors to an inside space are increasing in popularity. Patio cover companies and sunroom contractors in Miami-Dade County are frequent choice.

A sunroom, sun lounge, sun porch or sun parlor is a portion of the home provding enjoyment of the sun and the view while avoiding adverse weather such as wind and rain. They also go by the terms  patio room, solarium, conservatory, patio enclosure or Florida room. Some are designed with the view as the priority, others are intended to collect sunlight for light and warmth.

 

 



 

Patio enclosures and patio covers are another option. Patio cover companies build a roof with supports to cover a patio. Patio covers provide protection from rain and shade. If such an area is also surrounded by screens, it may be referred to as a screen room.

Questions to Ask Remodeling Contractors in Miami-Dade County FL  

 
When hiring commercial or home remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL, ask these questions about their abilities, experience, and methods before hiring:

• How long have they been doing business specifically as remodeling contractors in Miami-Dade County FL?



• Will they show you examples of remodels they've completed that are similar to what you want done?



• Will the remodeling contractors give you names and numbers of previous clients you can call as references? (All remodeling contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their customers references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do they have experience with the exact kind of remodeling you want? The expertise needed to build a patio cover or sunroom is different than that needed for a home addition, which in turn is different than a second story addition.

• Will they give a written bid with complete detail on the exact fixtures, items, and brands including product numbers, types of material and amount of material to be used? (This is critical because cheap remodeling contractors often only appear lower cost because they intentionally quote for only the lowest cost items, knowing that later you will probably want upgrades once you see them, which will the make the final cost much higher than their unrealistically low cost estimate.)

• Can they forsee any aspects that are unknown until the project is underway, such as what's under floors, inside ceilings, behind walls, that could change the cost of the project, and by how much specifically in each case? (Some home remodelers only seem cheap because they don't tell you about these possible unknowns, either due to lack of experience to anticipate them, or purposely to look like the low bidder in order to get your business).

• Is the individual who is doing the estimate (and making promises to you) the same one who will be doing the remodeling or overseeing the project? Or instead, will you be handed off to a different person in the company and if so, who?


• Will the remodeler give you a written contract to sign?


•  How soon after the contract is signed will they begin?


• What is the project timeframe from contract signing to completion?


•  Once the remodeling starts, will they be there every day until done , or is it possible they will be absent for days at a time to do work for other customers? If so, will this alter the estimated completion date?

• Can they prove to you that all their employees are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All remodelers in Miami-Dade County bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Will they give any written guarantees on their workmanship besides manufacturers warranties on products used, and if so, for what time period and what in included? 

• Is a permit required by your city for the remodeling you intend? If so, will the remodeling be getting those permits or do they leave that up to you?

• Will they be using only actual employees of their company, or instead do they bring in subcontractors? If so, what are the names of those subcontractors so you can research those?

• If they do use subcontractors, will you pay those subcontractors directly, or does the remodeling contractor do that? If the remodeling company, will they collect and give you a lien release from each subcontractor as assurance for you that those subcontractors will not file a lien on your property for any claims against the remodeler, such as if they are not paid on time?

• If you will be using the space while it is being remodeled, such as living in your house during a home remodel, how often and when do they clean up throughout the project?

• What methods or equipment do they use to keep the remodeling as clean as possible while you're using the space, for example air filters, dust barriers etc?

• How often will they communicate to you their expected schedule and by what method?



• Will they show you copies of their liability insurance and workers' compensation insurance? (All remodelers in Miami-Dade County FL 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.)


When you've chosen the best remodeling contractors in Miami-Dade County FL for your specific needs, for home remodeling, make sure they are licensed by the state of Florida as a Home Improvement Company. (All residential remodeling companies in Miami-Dade County 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.)
