Everything Your General Contractor Should Offer as Your Remodeling Services Partner

The early stages of considering a home remodeling project can feel daunting between the many decisions and details to weigh, compare, and decide upon. Perhaps the most important choice that homeowners can make is finding the right remodeling contractor to manage their project from start to finish. Finding a company with expertise, experience, and a long list of satisfied clients is paramount no matter the scope of your project. Whether you are planning for a makeover with simple upgrades or you need a full-service partner to customize your dream home, here are five qualities your general contractor should bring to the table to earn your trust and business.

1. A storied history of home remodeling expertise

Every company must start somewhere, but why risk working with an unseasoned contractor for your home renovation project? Look for someone with years of experience as a general contractor for whole house renovations, and with specific experience in your area of interest. Consider the elements of your project and look for a contractor with a proven record of successful kitchen renovations, flooring installation, basement remodeling, or other areas relevant to your project.

At Liston Design Build, we have dedicated more than 40 years to mastering the art of home renovation in the St. Louis region. Our extensive experience allows us to foresee challenges, anticipate needs, and craft solutions that stand the test of time. This rich history of excellence ensures that every project we undertake is backed by decades of knowledge and an unmatched commitment to quality.

2. Strong workmanship and craftsmanship

Unparalleled workmanship and high-quality craftsmanship are at the core of any successful remodeling project. At Liston Design Build, we take pride in delivering meticulous attention to detail and superior quality in every aspect of our work. Our skilled team of artisans, designers, carpenters, and builders approach each project with a passion for excellence, ensuring that every element of your remodel exceeds your expectations. From the initial design phase to the finishing touches, we are dedicated to transforming your home improvement vision into a reality with precision and care.

3. A network of partners and subcontractors

Effective home remodeling requires a robust network of reliable partners and subcontractors. Over the past four decades, our team has cultivated strong relationships with top-tier professionals in various trades, ensuring every aspect of your project is handled by experts. Our extensive network allows us to coordinate seamlessly across different specialties, ensuring a smooth and efficient remodeling process.

4. Warranty options

A trustworthy general contractor stands by their work, and Liston Design Build is no exception.

Our commitment to your satisfaction extends beyond project completion, providing long-term assurance and support. With our robust warranty and extended home service offerings, you can enjoy your newly remodeled space with the confidence that it is built to last.

5. Proven customer satisfaction

It seems like a given, but don’t skimp on your background research – and make it as specific as possible! If you’re interested in a bathroom remodeling project, look for a contractor who can share a portfolio of their workmanship from previous bathroom renovation projects. Considering kitchen remodeling for your next project? A contractor with happy clients will be able to show you a portfolio of everything from faucets and countertops to backsplashes and fixture installations from previous projects. And don’t forget to ask for references so you can reach out to former clients yourself. This way, you can feel good about hiring someone whose customers are happy to provide glowing endorsements for every project type you’re considering.
