Standing Out In A Crowd

When you type in “Dayton or Cincinnati remodeling” in a Google search, what do you see? You see a bunch of red dots with a bunch of different remodeling companies. And these are just the remodeling companies online; there could be double this offline! This made us think, if we were searching for a professional remodeler and typed this in our Google search, where would we begin? How can you tell one remodeling company from another? Here’s some tips on choosing the perfect remodeling company for you.

     Search for referrals & reviews. Where does the company get most of their clients?  
      View sites such as Angie’s List or Houzz and see what real people have to say. Kircher Design & Build (KDB) doesn’t pay for a lot of expensive ads, the majority of our clients are from referrals. Our name travels from one satisfied homeowner to the next.

      Ask questions over the phone before you begin.  Ask about associations, where they’re located, and how long they’ve been in business.
We belong to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Brookville Chamber of Commerce, and have had zero complaints on the Better Business Bureau. We’re located in both the Dayton & Cincinnati areas and have been in business for a little under two decades.  

Meet the remodeling company in person. Once you feel comfortable, ask them for previous clients and projects that you can refer to. Some good questions to ask these past clients include:
  •          Was the job completed on time?
  •          Were the workers neat and tidy?
  •          Did the price change significantly along the way?

Due to the fact that we are consistently recommended means that we put significant time and effort in asking you questions as well. We want to understand your vision for the new space as well as offering you our advice.

Review credentials. 
Over the course of the last 15 years KDB’s owners, John and Carrie, have both become certified Kitchen Remodelers (CKBR) through NARI (the National Association of the Remodeling Industry), and were even featured in the “Entrepreneur” magazine twice for excellent business practices. We have received numerous accolades for our dedication to our clients and excellence in craftsmanship throughout the years. We have been awarded Contractor of the Year for numerous projects since 2007. Our kitchens have been featured in Housetrends Magazine, Daytonian Style, and Country Living. Our employees hold several certifications and credentials including CKBR, CLC (NARI Certified Lead Carpenter), CR (EPA RRP Certified Remodeler), UDCP (NARI Universal Design Certified Professional), and Bachelor of Science in Residential Interior Design just to name a few. 
      Most importantly, don’t always choose the contractor with the cheapest price.
      Although it can be tempting, you usually shouldn’t go with the cheapest contractor. There are many reasons they could have the lowest price. They could use low quality materials, be desperate for business, or start with a low bid and as the project progresses, add unseen costs. Choose your remodeler based on their background, personality, methods, AND price. Always remember a quality remodeler will not give you a “low ball” offer.  We’ll give you the right price and promise to always deliver on what we offer.

Home remodeling can be exciting and fun! When hiring a remodeler, do your research and hire one with a solid reputation.
