When done properly, a kitchen remodel makes your home more enjoyable and can be a valuable investment. However, it can also be a relatively expensive undertaking that can turn out to be a huge headache if you choose the wrong company. But how can you tell if one company is any better or worse than another?

Use these standards to help you judge (before you sign on the dotted line) whether or not a company is likely to do the job right:


Make sure that any remodeler you do business with has proven themselves in the past and will be there if you need them in the future. All our franchises receive national support and Kitchen Tune-Up has been in business for over 31 years.

Look for: photos of owners, their vehicle, and their team

Ask for: an insurance certificate and business license


One way to judge a home improvement or renovation company is to find out what others have to say. A good reputation is earned through years of giving superior service, treating people right, doing what you say you’ll do, going the extra mile, and respecting your customers.

Look for: customer references and a professional appearance

Do they have: a professional website, neat clothing with company logo, a vehicle with company signage, and a social media presence with current information


Most importantly, a remodeler has to be competent to do the job right the first time. Competence comes from training, experience, and good old-fashioned hard work. As you evaluate a remodeler, look for signs that they can do the job right the first time.

Look for: proof of insurance and a warranty
