If you are in the Sheffield area and are wondering where to start with a kitchen extension, Milestone have a few pointers to help you on your way;
Firstly you need to find a professional. One of the best ways to find an experienced designer, architect and builder is by asking family and friends who’s projects you have admired when visiting.
Check out the boards and signs that architects and builders put up outside a site whilst they are undertaking the works and check them out on social media, google and their website. Get a feel of the work they’ve undertaking, check out their testimonials and compile as much information as possible before you make a decision to commence your project with them.
Most industries have a professional body – search online and check their credentials out. Also ask to see their current and valid insurance certifications. You have every right to be sure you are dealing with a true professional whom truly cares about you and your project.
Make sure that when the said professional visits you in your home they are not too sales orientated, they listen, they discuss and most importantly they make you feel at ease in their presence. This is an extremely good indicator as if they do none of these aspects how do you know you will get what you have paid for?
A good professional will not only listen to your specifications but they will advise you on certain aspects. It’s a good indicator if they bring some idea’s to the ‘table’ and even give you idea’s that maybe even you haven’t thought of. A true experienced trades person or professional will be able to advise you on not only the legalities of undertaking a project but also the little extra’s that will give a project the WOW factor.
As mentioned before, check out their social media, most successful professionals will be on all of the social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to name but a few, also search for them on YouTube, most give regular video updates on the site which gives you a clear indication that they actually care about the work they do and shows you what they can do.
