Contractor Selection - the Homeowner's Decision Which is Crucial to Remodeling Project Success

Q.   Why should I care if Cook Bros. is the #1 Remodeling Contractor in Arlington County? Why should that matter to me as a homeowner looking to have some remodeling done on my home?


A.   Contractor Selection is one of the MOST CRITICAL decisions a homeowner will make affecting the success of their remodeling project.

The simple, but not immediately obvious, reason that Cook Bros. is privileged to be able to enjoy this "#1 in Arlington" distinction, is a RESULT of hundreds of well-informed homeowners choosing Cook Bros. instead of competitors.  Doesn't it follow that there must be some REAL reasons they chose Cook Bros?  And  have been doing so for over 25 years?

Following is an excerpt from our Remodeling Guide e-Book which addresses the importance of CONTRACTOR SELECTION on page 17.  For your own FREE COPY of the entire e-Book, click here or on the image above.

"... Selecting The Contractor

         Next to having a poor design or poor design process, the worst threat to your project’s success is contractor selection. Even a good design will be a disaster without a competent construction firm. Of course, if you had a Design/Build firm like COOK BROS. design your project, then you already know an expert remodeling contractor very well!

        If you worked with an independent designer, perhaps they can make a contractor recommendation. Can you get any contractor recommendations from acquaintances who have recently had similar work performed and were satisfied? Do you see a particular contractor’s yard signs and vehicles often, indicating that they are successful and busy?..."


"...Otherwise, you have to do it the hard way: cold calling, setting appointments, re-scheduling no-shows, wading through incompetents and struggling in vain to gain a basis for comparison between them. And by “basis for comparison”..."


       "...It is critical that you choose a contractor that you know, trust and who shares your vision! Do not even think about signing a construction contract with a contractor with whom you have not already developed a solid working relationship. Again, Design/Build eliminates this problem. Getting to know your contractor only after having signed a construction contract can be the biggest mistake of your life! ..."

We don't expect to get ALL of the remodeling business in Arlington, but we do hope to be one of the 2 or 3 bidders competing for it ALL!  Give Cook Bros. a chance to PROVE to you in person, why we are #1.
