There are 524,387 remodeling businesses in the US as of 2022. Of course, not all will provide the same level of service or have trusted contractors available that suit your home renovation. So how do you choose who to get a bid from? To help, we’ve narrowed down a selection of general contractors and builders that offer nationwide renovation and remodeling services.

What to look for in a home renovation contractor

We’ve all heard the horror stories, not all contractors are equal. Choosing the wrong general contractor to renovate your home could be a costly mistake that leaves you paying twice as much to repair poor workmanship or without your home essentials for months on end. 

There’s no way of knowing for sure until the job has started if you’ve made the right choice — but we have compiled a list of essentials you should be looking for. It’s also a good idea to get 2-3 quotes completed for your project to compare costs and services available for peace of mind. Before signing any contracts, make sure your renovation company and/or contractors are:

Licensed, bonded & insured

Don’t take risks with an unlicensed tradesperson. Only ever work with professionals who are fully trained, licensed, bonded and insured. It’s important to note that bonded and insured are not the same thing. A contractor’s bond is a financial guarantee that the terms of a contract will be fulfilled. This protects all parties from financial loss if the contractor doesn’t follow through with the terms of the original agreement. It’s also not simple to obtain, so successfully having a bond is a good indication that there is high confidence in the business or tradesperson being able to execute on the contract. Insurance on the other hand is a paid-premium that covers claims and incidents if something goes wrong — such as worker’s compensation if an accident occurs on site. 

Reputable, with a good track record

Does the business have good references and before/after photos that you can see from other local customers? Are their online reviews positive or negative? Before getting a quote from any contractor, check out their website and see what people are saying about them to get a feel for their reputation. If you have friends or neighbors who have renovated their home, ask if they have any recommendations. 

Honest and trustworthy

Hiring someone you trust will go a long way in protecting your home and finances. Contractors and businesses should be honest and upfront about timelines, costs, and what is workable. If they can’t provide this or you can’t find information on their licenses and work history, this is a red flag. 

Experts, with strong local knowledge

When choosing a nationwide contractor, you will be relying on the services of a local representative or franchise owner. Do your due-diligence and ensure that the people working in your hometown have the same reputation as their parent company.

Providing helpful financing options

Most (but not all) nationwide renovation companies will have financing options available. Be sure to check you want to spread out payments over time and read the fine print before signing up with any associated financing company. 

Offer good-value warranties and guarantees

Most renovation companies will provide a warranty on workmanship and installation for one year. Be sure to find out the details and terms of any warranties or guarantees before assuming that work will be redone at no cost to you. If there is a dispute or it’s not deemed faulty, you may need to pay again for work to be fixed.


Note what the communication is like when you approach anyone for a quote. Are you greeted with professionalism and in a timely manner? Do they show up when they say they will? Make sure you deal with a company who handles communication well and interacts with integrity.
