Atlanta Home Remodeling
We here at Great American Country know a thing or two about Atlanta home remodeling. Contrary to popular belief, however, not everyone on staff can operate power tools and knock down walls like Jonathan and Drew Scott. What we do know after years of experience and DIY'ing is when to call in the pros—either for a full-scale kitchen renovation or to fix a bathroom we've mucked up.
The good news is that when it comes to home remodelers Atlanta is flush with resources. The hard part is picking the best one for your needs. Our advice is to never make a decision based on emotion—ie: you can live with that Formica countertop for another month—or without doing a bit of vetting. There is absolutely no shame in asking for a contractor's license number and references. Let's put it this way, when was the last time you got a job without a resume?
Lastly, should you ever need to file a complaint or take something to small claims court, hiring someone without a license can negate your chances of retribution or fair compensation. But enough about the bad stuff, let's get to the good stuff. We've rounded up a few of Atlanta's top home remodelers to help jump start your renovation.
