Expert Tips from Remodeler Jimmy McKinney of J&R Construction
J & R Construction is a “small and family oriented” team serving central Kentucky for over 17 years (with additional offices in Owensboro). The company specializes in a variety of remodeling projects including kitchens, bathrooms, additions, decks, porches, whole house remodeling, and basement finishing.
J & R has great advice for homeowners considering a remodel, and recommends asking a lot of questions to find the right fit.
Ask your potential remodeler if they guarantee their work. J & R recommends that “The contractor should guarantee their work for at least one year from date of completion. They should also include any warranties for the material used if applicable.” J&R Construction guarantees their work with 5 year and 10 year warranties.
Homeowners should always find out very early in the process who will be in charge of your job. J & R advises that homeowners “make sure the contractor or their crew is on the job whenever work is being performed—especially if sub-contractors will be used, unless it has been communicated that the sub-contractors do not need to be supervised. (In some cases, sub-contractors come to do work without a company representative present.) If you want the contractor or one of the crew there at ALL times, one might have to pay for this service. The responsible party must be familiar with every aspect of your project. You cannot be worried about what is going on when you are not there.”
J & R also recommends asking for written references, and says “home remodeling and building is a very personal process. The contractor you hire will be part of your home life for several weeks or months, so it’s important to make sure that your personalities work well together.”
