What Every Homeowner Should Know About Home Improvement Contractors in Union County NJ
We at National always take the time to educate clients on how they should be researching and hiring the best remodeling and renovation contractors for their particular needs. The first rule of thumb is to do your research. Too many homeowners just search online for a few minutes, find a contractor who boasts about lowest prices or price match guarantees, and hires them immediately. As you may well know, you get what you pay for. Failing to spend the time up front to do your research can result in a disaster of a home improvement project in Union County.
The second rule of thumb is that you should hire a contractor not only for quality of work, but for their style of renovations and their style of doing business. Since remodeling or renovation your NJ home is a process that will take a few weeks, you are going to have a lot of interaction with your chosen remodeling company. You want to make sure you have a good rapport with the contractor and that all expectations are aligned.
- Verify that they have a valid NJ Home Improvement Contractor License
- Ask to see written proof of liability insurance and even workers compensation insurance
- Ask to see a sample contract
- Ask to see warranty information
- Ask for previous client references for past projects in your local area
- Ask for a proposed payment plan so you can budget accordingly
- Ask them to put everything in writing. No exceptions
- Spend time asking them questions before you sign the contract so you can feel as comfortable as possible. A contractor who will not spend the proper time with you is not worth your time.

Home Remodeling Project Financing
Since Union County is has one of the highest property tax rates in the entire country, the real estate itself is also expensive, and many of the homes in Westfield and surrounding areas are older, many people who want to renovate do not have the appropriate budget to do so. To solve this problem, we offer 100% financing for nearly all of our home improvement and remodeling jobs in North Jersey.
We never recommend getting in over your head with a home improvement project, especially if it is an elective one. But sometimes it is more manageable to pay a project off over time instead of one big lump sum up front.
During our initial consultation with clients, we discuss things like your vision, your home, your family, your lifestyle, your budget, and financing options. If we feel that you are in a position to benefit from one of our financing options to make the remodeling cost more manageable for you, we will certainly propose that.
Many younger people are moving from areas in and around New York City, such as Jersey City and Hoboken, and want the same level of luxury in in towns like Clark and Cranford as they had back in the city. Home remodels have become very popular for this younger demographic.
Home Remodeling Can Add Enjoyment and Value to Your Home
If you are a resident of an older home, an interior remodeling project is something that can make the house truly yours, while adding resale value to it in the event that you want to sell it someday. We specialize in kitchen and bathroom remodeling in Union County NJ.
For kitchen remodeling, the range of projects varies from smaller upgrades and updates that cost $25,000 to luxury kitchens that can cost well over $100,000. On the smaller project end, you may be looking at resurfacing some cabinets, replacing countertops, and maybe replacing the floor and some tile work. On the larger end of that spectrum, you’re usually looking at gutting the kitchen and replacing everything with brand new: cabinets, counters, sinks, appliances, islands, peninsulas, windows, entry ways, lighting and fixtures, pantries, and other small details.
When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, you can go small with some cosmetic upgrades to your hall bath or powder room or you can splurge on a spa-like master bathroom suite. Bathrooms are interesting because sometimes they don’t require a lot of renovation to really transform them. A few changes here and there can make a big difference. But in an older home, you may be looking at replacing a lot of the older fixtures, showers, tubs, sinks, and vanities in order to make the bathroom not only nicer looking, but more efficient.
