Choosing the right contractor for new year renovation works

With the new year on the horizon many home and business owners will be considering the potential of renovating their domestic or commercial properties.

This can have many benefits, allowing for a property to be completely upgraded or re-purposed, but finding the right building contractors to plan and perform these works is essential to the overall success of even the simplest renovation project.

To help your search, here we offer just a few of the key factors to consider when choosing a professional contractor to perform renovation works in 2019.


Renovation projects require a wide range of skills and plenty of experience, so finding a contractor with proven experience of performing the works you require is essential. Good building companies will be able to offer specialist services for your requirements, whether domestic or commercial.


It is important to make sure that you employ a contractor that is fully certified and affiliated with appropriate bodies such as Constructionline. This ensures that the works will be performed safely by industry standard professionals and that any insurance issues will be covered.


Try to find out more about a building contractor and the previous renovation work they have undertaken by getting feedback from previous clients. This information might be available directly or available through ratings and testimonials on a contractor’s website.


To be fully assured that a contractor produces excellent results, ask to see examples of their previous work. Trusted companies will be only too happy to show off their previous renovation experience and talk about how these projects were performed to a high standard.
