Remodel or Move

Chipman Contracting helps homeowners in Carrollton and many cities across North Texas get the space they need without the stress of moving.

Reasons to Remodel? 

Staying is Stable. Moving is one of the most stressful situations in life- listed just after divorce and loss of a loved one. It’s especially when you factor in what you will be leaving behind. Over the years, you’ve probably grown pretty attached to your house, neighbors, schools, and your neighborhood.

The Market is Moving Fast. The real estate market is moving fast, and the search for your next home may take a while. If you’re not prepared for the stress of searching for a home and the stress of selling your existing home, remodeling is for you. 

The Fear of the Unknown. Moving into someone else’s house could mean inheriting someone else’s (expensive) problems. You know your home like the back of your hand. You know when had essential maintenance, when you replaced the roof, and that the third stair from the top creaks when you step on it.

Get What You Want. When you remodel, you can choose everything you want instead of having to move into a home that may not have everything you want or need. You can skip settling on a house you aren’t totally in love with by remodeling the house you already love. While building a brand new home is an option, it is often a very lengthy and costly process. You may also be limited by available styles and materials your builder offers while remodeling your home brings you endless options to upgrade and update. 

If you dream it, Chipman Contracting can do it. Call us to today at 972.841.5082 to schedule a consultation to discuss your remodeling plans.

Choosing a Contractor

Are you looking for a trustworthy and professional contractor to handle your home remodel, repair, or renovation? Chipman Contracting offers you some tips to consider when finding someone responsible and reliable to work on your home. 

  1. Look for a license. When searching for a contractor or any other professional to work in your home, the first step you should take is to find out if they are licensed. Licensed professionals have met state and local requirements for education in their field of expertise, which gives you peace of mind that the work they will perform in your home will be high quality.
  2.  Check for insurance, while you’re at it. It is important to use contractors that have insurance. Most states and many municipalities require that contractors carry insurance. This will protect both you and your contractor if damage occurs. 
  3. Ask for references. Be sure to ask any potential provider for reference contacts, and be sure to follow up with those references to see if your contractor provided quality work and the customer was satisfied. 
  4. Ask around. When looking for a contractor, you should use someone you know you can trust. In many cases, your friends, family, and neighbors likely have a preferred professional in mind.  
  5. Check for ratings or complaints. Do your research and check reviews of the contractor on local business pages, sites like Angie’s List, or with the industries state professional licensing organizations. Also check with your local municipality for any information they may have about your provider.  
  6. Permit Pros. In some cases of remodeling, permits must be pulled. Responsible and knowledgeable professionals understand the permitting process and will handle those details accordingly.
