5 Questions You Will Want To Ask Your Remodeling Firm


When remodeling your home there is a lot to get done. You need to decide on a layout, budget, colors, appliances, fixtures, etc. Working with the right design and remodeling company can help you get the results you want.

Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling prides itself on excellence and professionalism. Awarded “San Diego’s Best” for 8 years in a row, Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling is dedicated to providing the highest quality design and build services without exception. When deciding which remodeling firm to work with, make sure you ask these 5 very important questions.


Do you have a license from the state of California?

“It is crucial that anyone that works for you is licensed,” explains Sergei Kaminskiy, president and CEO of Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling. “You can make sure someone is properly licensed by visiting the Contractors State License Board website. Always double check that there are no complaints filed against that license.”

The experienced team at Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling are all licensed, an important factor to consider when finding the right team to work with.


Do you have liability insurance and worker’s compensation?

You always want to make sure that whoever works on your home carries worker’s compensation and liability insurance. “The worker’s compensation helps take care of medical expenses for a member of the team if they are hurt during the project. The liability insurance protects the homeowner against fire, underground work or collapse that may be connected with the construction project,” explains Kaminskiy.

Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling has active general liability insurance in place, as well as worker’s compensation for everyone employed by the company. Our trade partners and subcontractors are carefully vetted to make sure they are covered as well.


Do you offer a warranty for your work, and what is covered?

It is critical to understand from the very start what warranty is provided for a project. The standard warranty coverage when making improvements on a property is one year for workmanship. Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling exceeds that expectation by providing a two-year warranty on workmanship. “That’s how confident we are in the product we deliver,” says Sergei Kaminskiy.  


Do you have other projects I could see, or past projects for reference?

“This is often the best and most important sign that you will have a good experience with a firm,” points out Kaminskiy. Requesting a firm’s references will show you the reputation they have built with their clients. This information should show you right away if you can trust this company to follow through with their projects.

Do you plan to get the necessary permits for this project?

Permits are a written authorization issued by the City or County to hold contractors accountable for a project. It ensures the safety of the work and its compliance with building construction and zoning codes. If a contractor claims that they do not need a permit, know that they may be taking shortcuts or building illegally.  “We get permits for every project that we do,” says Kaminskiy. Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling ensures that all plans and permits meet the right standards from beginning to end.
