A Time For Change

A Time For Change

Spring is quickly passing by and summer is just around the corner, which means for many of us it’s high time to start planning out the renovations we’ve been putting off for months now. Hours of browsing Pinterest later, we need to start asking ourselves how we want our bathrooms to look, how to open up the kitchen to make it less confining, and, most importantly, what contractors are we going to hire to get the job done right?

The contracting question is one for the ages, as the businesses that populate the industry have a well-deserved reputation for cutting corners and providing shoddy workmanship in order to increase their margins. Even contractors that come recommended to us from friends and family have a tendency to disappoint, as I found out after one such company revamped my kitchen just to find that they had accidentally removed a load-bearing wall. Whoops!

So, what are we to do about finding the diamonds in the rough? Well, Yelp is one option – people spending a significant chunk of change on a shoddy remodel are unlikely to keep their silence for long.

So, a brief search for home remodeling contractors in Orange County will bring up some of the best contractors in the business, which brings us to the spotlighted company for today’s post, Inspired Remodels, Inc. Not only do they have one of the best ratings on Yelp for a contracting firm I’ve seen, they have some truly stellar testimonials that go on at length about the quality of their craftsmanship. Lisa G., for example, talks about their work on her bathroom here:

“After spending time looking for a contractor to renovate our master bathroom, laundry and power bath, we settled on Inspired Remodels and I’m so glad we did! From start to finish every single person that worked in our home was professional, considerate and communicated with us throughout the process. I am rather “particular” about things being just right and they went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. Joe and Collin were very patient with me during the selection process and Jason was responsive and made me feel at ease with any questions I had along the way. The tradesmen were all outstanding but I need to give a special shoutout to Haime and Rudy, Mark and Ulysses, for their attention to detail and the long hours they put into making our home beautiful.  Thank you, thank you! I highly recommend using IR if you have high expectations – they will be met!”

Mike S. expands on her words here:

“Our experience with Inspired Remodels was the best I’ve ever experienced with contractors.  Jason and Joe Mueller we’re responsive throughout the project.
We are very meticulous and hired IR to redo a remodel that went south.  Our remodel included removing new wood like tile flooring due to improper installation from a previous fraudulent contractor.  IR flawlessly removed all flooring and kept the job spotless during the 7-week remodel.  Our house was virtually left better then IR found it.  IR installed the new wood tile above and beyond industry standards, removed and replaced all new baseboards and doors.  Additionally, IR painted and perfected areas that were previously left imperfect by the previous contractor.
I will definitely use IR again for our future remodel needs.  Jason even brought us a house warming gift at the end.  We moved back into our house on schedule and couldn’t be happier.
Thank you IR family!  We look forward to using your professional and family oriented services again in the future.
Thank you” So, there we have it. Excellent quality work in a reasonable time frame, which is much more than you can say about a lot of firms in the biz. Happy hunting, folks, and don’t forget: never use stainless steel for your counter tops. Just don’t.
