So Your Project Won’t Turn into a Home Remodeling Disaster

My name is Jim Whittemore and I have been called as an expert witness for the construction industry.

I have seen plenty of home remodeling disasters up close. Maybe good news doesn’t sell but I am sure you don’t want your project to be highlighted in a TV exposé on bad contractors.

I want to assure you that working with my company will be a positive experience. I know that is easier said than done. That is one of the reasons I provide you with a long list of references so you can call my clients and ask them the tough questions.

A recent survey found that over 66% of remodeling contractors were out of business within 5 years. Amazingly, less than 33% of those survivors make it to 10 years

I have been “remodeling the Farmington Valley since 1974”. I am confident that my longevity is based on understanding the needs and perspective of my clients, especially the women. In my experience, women make more of the every day decisions and choices in a construction project and I can make that much less stressful.

If you are looking to refresh a bathroom, update your kitchen, put on an addition, or any other remodeling project, it is possible for a project to be done right the first time without hidden charges, hassles or poor quality that are all too commonly found.

There are many general and remodeling contractors that talk a good game but very few deliver on their promises. I encourage you to carefully review “What Happens when You Choose the Low Bidder” – it highlights all of the ways that the low bidder can take advantage of you and unfortunately I have seen plenty of these as an expert witness.

How to Select a Professional Remodeling Contractor
to Complete Your Project
17 Questions to Ask Before Hiring

Unfortunately, because of the economy many new companies have sprung up in the remodeling industry. These companies don’t have the training or experience to complete a quality, comprehensive remodeling project.

I strongly encourage you to use our How To Select a Professional Home Remodeling Contractor questions to evaluate every contractor you consider so you don’t make the mistake of hiring someone that is learning on your dime.

We will be happy to provide you with our answers to these questions or any others that you have in writing at our first meeting.

Village Building & Restoration LLC serves homeowners in West Hartford, Avon, Simsbury, Farmington, Canton and the Entire Farmington Valley. We have built our reputation on honesty, integrity, reliability, professionalism and customer satisfaction.

I can help you with many of the details that most contractors don’t want to deal with, for example:

Many remodeling contractors will send you off to the supplier and let you deal with the sometimes daunting amount of choices. I will take the time to find out what you need and then provide specific recommendations on materials.

This is just one of the ways I keep you within budget and take the guesswork and frustration out of the many choices you will make for your project.

Maybe that is why most of our projects are from clients that want us to do additional work for them or that refer us to their friends or relatives

I would like to show you how you can be sure your remodeling project will be the envy of your friends and neighbors and it will be completed without the typical issues like missed deadlines, hidden charges and faulty workmanship that are all too common in our industry.

Our industry is competitive, like most, and I appreciate this opportunity to demonstrate why our clients consistently refer us.

I realize what it takes to earn your business, what it takes to create the results that you demand and what is necessary to prevent potential headaches and frustrations peculiar to construction.

Thanks for your time and we look forward to answering your questions about your upcoming project.
