How To Choose A Los Angeles Contractor

If you’re a Los Angeles homeowner who is ready for a remodel, then you’re most likely going to need an LA-based contractor to come in and do the work needed to transform your home into your dream space. But where should you start? How do you know what to look for in a Los Angeles contractor? What makes them qualified for the job? To help you navigate the often challenging process of finding a Los Angeles remodel professional, here are some tips so that your LA remodel goes as planned.

Do Your Homework

You don’t want just any company coming in to do your home remodel in Los Angeles. To ensure you choose someone qualified for the job, you’ll want to do your homework and research various companies before actually picking up the phone or emailing them for an inquiry. Make sure you scan websites and all social media to get a feel for their work. Reach out via email or social media if you have any follow up questions regarding the work you see online. Ask questions like:

  • Have they done previous renovation you need before?
  • If they have contacts with well-known suppliers?
  • What’s their specialization when it comes to home renovation?

LA Design Build has quite an extensive portfolio when it comes to Los Angeles home renovations. We also have several contacts with well-known suppliers in the industry. We prefer to work with top names who we know provide quality products and materials. When it comes to specialization, we do it all!

Check For Licenses

It’s important that you hire a licensed LA renovation specialist. LA Design Build is fully licensed and insured, as well as current on all our licenses so that you can rest assure that your home renovation project is completed on time as planned.

Invite The Contractor Over

It’s a good idea to provide Los Angeles contractors any lists you have on your wants and desires for your renovation project. Also, get their ideas and see how they would improve your space so that you can take their ideas and incorporate it into your overall desired look. You’ll want to review the space with the contractor in your home. At LA Design Build, we like to go into a space to get a feel for what needs to be done and how it should look – always taking into consideration the wishes of the client.

We reinvent homes and take their designs to new heights. With every project, we relish in the opportunity to design an experience as our project managers take into account how clients will interact in their space rather than just focus on material applications. Our vast portfolio includes kitchen and bathroom renovations, ground-up developments, full-home automation and more. We bring expertise and a tailored approach to each individual project, which includes management from concept to completion.

Project Spotlight: Azzurra Penthouse

Modern and high-tech is how we’d describe our Azzurra Penthouse Los Angeles renovation project. The Marina del Ray condo had great bones for us to come in and create something modern and technology-driven – two requests from the owners. Located on the 20th floor of a Marina de Ray tower that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, this high-rise condo was meant to do a lot of entertaining. Because of this, the entire renovation project needed to be impressive and we made sure to deliver!

For the kitchen, the owners wanted to create a “European modern” look and so we added a  custom-fabricated Vadara island, featuring a waterfall effect for the entire piece, induction cooktop and recirculating downdraft vent for a seamless and cooking experience. There’s a no-burn induction stove that makes cooking safer and easy since heat is only emitted when the smart stove senses any pots and pans on it. The Tower “T” Miele appliance design features a steam oven, coffee maker, convection oven and microwave is like a piece of art on the wall. It’s surrounded by hidden cabinets with push latch features to go with the minimalist look of the rest of the kitchen. There’s also a dual-temperature wine fridge that chills both white and reds at the same time. 

The master bedroom and bathroom also feature more smart home improvement, such as privacy glass that darkens when someone is in the bathroom and goes back to being crystal clear when there’s no one around. This addition allows for smaller spaces to appear larger than they really are. The shower features an oversized Porcelanosa tile slab in a marble design for an extra luxurious look and feel. The LED rain shower has a thermostatic valve that replaces the need for any shower fixtures. The Infinity linear drain improves drainage while also adding to the seamless appearance of the master bath. Robern lighted medicine cabinets flow with the minimalist design of the entire condo and enhance the space with the best lighting in its class. 

As reputable Los Angeles renovation contractors, we pride ourselves on providing clients with their dream spaces. This Azzurra Penthouse is just one of the Southern California renovation projects that we are most proud of!
