Making Sure the Contractor Finishes the Job

I am planning on renovating my kitchen, but I am a bit gun-shy since I've been left out to dry by contractors before. Does anyone have any advice on protecting myself from a contractor that won't finish the job?

    If you haven't started your project yet, I would strongly recommend that you go with a professional remodeling company that specializes in design/build and kitchen and bathroom remodels. There is a difference between a professional remodeling company and contractor/installer. A remodeling company will see the job through and provide you with scheduling, etc. Check out the National Association of the Remodeling Industry for reputable contractors. Their site provides an area for consumers to review and they have a strict code of ethics on this issue. Someone once said, "if you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an ameteur". Their website is There are chapters around the country. If you are in the DC area, and need a recommendation, email me at and I a few contractors in this area I can recommend who specializes in kitchen and bathroom remodels. Good luck!
