Are you ready to finally start remodeling your kitchen after thinking about it for two years? You’ve gone back and forth between designs and how you want the kitchen to look and, let’s not forget about the stove. You finally choose the stove of your dreams to cook all the meals for your family and friends. Now, it’s go time. But where do you start?

First, you need to find a contractor. Choosing a General Contractor can be stressful, especially when you haven’t had to use one in the past. Let’s break down the steps to finding a contractor in your area that meets your needs.

Step 1. Download the Dibbs app

The Dibbs app allows you to post your job (the kitchen remodel) and have it reach an entire network of certified contractors. The templates on the app make it easy to use and, you can post it within minutes!

Step 2. Allow the contractors to come to you

Yup, you do not have to do the manual work of calling multiple contractors and being placed on hold only to describe what you’re looking for 3+ times. Now, with your post shared on the network, contractors will be able to contact you through the app and provide you with previous work they have done, referrals, certifications, and timelines and budgets.

Step 3. Choose the contractor you want to work with

You have received 6+ bids from contractors who want to rebuild your kitchen- you’ve asked them the questions or concerns you have and have even spoken to a few via FaceTime to show them the space. Now, you pick a winner! Through the Dibbs app, you can choose the general contractor that you will work with and send a deposit if required through the secure transaction portal.

Step 4 – Let the fun begin

Now that you have the contractor – the kitchen remodel begins! Throughout your project, you can keep a timeline and budget sheet in the Dibbs app to ensure you are staying on track. Throughout the renovation process, be sure you have a “temporary” kitchen that can accommodate your cooking needs until then, we would also suggest embracing disposable silverware to keep things easy!

Step 5 – Enjoy your new Kitchen

All the work is done and now you can easily leave a review for the contractor who completed your job to help others looking for similar work. Now, it’s time to enjoy your new kitchen.

The Dibbs app makes it simple. Gone are the days of contacting multiple contractors or asking family and friends for referrals trusting that their referrals will meet your standards. Download the app today and start seeing how you can save time and money on your next home renovation.
