5 Reasons to Hire a Home Renovation Company With Over 30 Years of Experience

Dan Robinson Construction Management — based in Innisfil, Simcoe Muskoka County — has been in the home renovation business for over 30 years. But, what does that really mean for our clients? What part does experience play when it comes to home renovations or building an addition to your Innisfil home?

Here are 5 reasons to hire a home renovation company with over 30 years of experience, trust us, it’s worth your while…

1. Meaningful connections with suppliers and subcontractors

It takes more than one person to build your dream home in Innisfil. Your ideal home renovation company has ties to the best suppliers, contractors, and subcontractors.
As they say in business, your network is your net worth. Professional relationships in the construction business are forged over years and years of working together. Your home renovation contractor knows where the best tiles and fixtures come from, who the best electricians and architects are, and who they can count on to get the most reliable equipment. An established home renovation company will stake its reputation on the relationships they have curated over the years. It’s not enough to want to work with someone because they have a great reputation. Your builder knows someone is right for the job because they’ve worked with them countless times before and know firsthand that they’re as good as they say they are.

Professional credibility doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes years to build a solid network.

2. Completed renovations that stand the test of time

It goes without saying that a home renovation is a long-term investment for a homeowner. When hiring someone who has been in home construction for a long time, you get to find out how their work is received YEARS after the work is completed through referrals and testimonials. It’s one thing when a homeowner feels great about a completed home renovation, but what’s even more important is how they feel about their investment a year later. Or even 10-20 years later! If a renovated house still holds up and looks great, and if a family is STILL in love with their home, that’s how you know it was truly a successful home renovation.

3. Construction management expertise

The construction manager is the point person for the homeowner (the client) and the one who oversees the entire renovation from beginning to end. The construction manager has to make sure the scope of work is covered and that everyone understands and fulfils their responsibilities so that the renovation meets expectations in a timely and cost-effective manner. The construction manager’s job is often a balancing act of managing multiple people and timelines. It is a job that requires tact and meticulousness. Not only do they have to have a thorough understanding of every aspect of a home renovation, but they also have to have excellent communication and customer service skills. As you can imagine, this isn’t the type of role that can be assumed by someone who is inexperienced. It takes many years to acquire both the hard skills and soft skills to be a successful construction manager for a home renovation company.

4. Ability to anticipate and respond is like second nature

Even if a renovation is planned out perfectly down to every detail, unexpected occurrences are bound to happen — that’s just the nature of home renovation. Luckily, the right renovation expert will know how to anticipate and respond to whatever challenges come up. Is it instinct? Is it a sixth sense? Maybe — but it’s a more likely experience! An experienced renovator who has “seen it all” will be able to not only avoid any sudden pitfalls but will also know what to do to get the project back on track with minimal delay and cost. Hire for the experience if you don’t want to get caught off-guard!

5. Experienced renovators have seen your project before

Your renovation needs are specific, and the more experienced your renovator is with projects that resemble yours, the more likely you will be happy with the end product.
If you are doing a full gut renovation, you no doubt want to hire a renovator who has a lot of experience gutting and renovating a home. Or, if you want to add a second floor to your home, you’ll definitely want to work with someone who has successfully taken on this task in the past. If your home is in Innisfil, your best bet is with an Innisfil renovator who is connected to local suppliers, contractors, and suppliers; who understand the quirks and challenges of renovating an Innisfil home; and who knows what types of additions and upgrades have been made Innisfil homeowners happy in the past. Make a wish list of everything you want to see in your home renovation project, and hire a company that has previous experience in what it is you want to be done.

When it comes to hiring a home renovation company, it’s best to go with someone with a lot of years of experience. A home renovation company that has been in the business for a long time will have better relationships with suppliers, contractors, and sub-contractors, and you can bet that this will affect the outcome of the work they do for you. By selecting a company that has been building and renovating homes for a long time, you will have the advantage of being able to find out how their work still holds up after many years. You will also benefit from a company that has an experienced construction manager, as this is a role that can have a positive impact on your home renovation. A renovator that is experienced will be able to anticipate and respond to any setbacks that might come up during the renovation process. And finally, an experienced renovator is more likely to have done the work that you specifically need and can, therefore, reliably promise great results.
