How To Find The Right Contractor : BBB’s Torch Award Points Homeowners In The Right Direction

SAN DIEGO, CA - 12/15/2015 (PRESS RELEASE JET) --  It’s one of the toughest decisions to make about one of the largest purchases homeowners make in their lifetime: how to find right contractor for a remodel?

Many homeowners start with a referral or a glance down their street to see which companies might be remodeling in their neighborhood. While these methods might produce good results, another option is to have a look at which companies are being recognized for their commitment to operate ethically in the remodeling industry.

Marrokal Design & Remodeling received the Marketplace Ethics award for 2015 (making this its fifth win) at the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Awards 18th annual program this month.

It’s more than an award, it’s an indication of whom you can trust in the remodeling industry.

The BBB Seal and Torch Award are known as trusted marks. A win in this category is given to companies who have a commitment to ethical business practices internally and externally. A company can win the Torch Award only if its practices are ethical, reliable, and responsive to customers, employees, and vendors. 

“In the remodeling industry homeowners are often confused about who to trust,” says Gary Marrokal, CEO of Marrokal Design & Remodeling. His company began more than 35 years ago in San Diego. “For decades, we’ve been proving to homeowners that we put them first. That’s why so many people know they can trust their home to us.”

The remodeling industry is seeing positive growth year-over-year, according to the latest Residential Remodeling Index (RRI) released by Hanley Wood company Metrostudy. It’s the 14th consecutive quarter of positive gains and no slow-down is expected.

When industries boom, there is increased risk. As more contractors come into an industry, it becomes difficult to find the right contractor for a remodel.

“It’s an honor to receive the BBB Marketplace Ethics award. It lets homeowners know they can count on us. We are strongly committed to continuing to set a high standard and expectation of service in the remodeling industry,” says Tom Capizzi, co-owner of Marrokal Design & Remodeling. 

“The Torch Awards allow the BBB to honor businesses that epitomize ethics and integrity,” says San Diego BBB President/CEO Sheryl Reichert.  “These are the businesses that are doing the right thing for consumers in a time when so many others struggle to be accountable.”

How to find the right contractor involves asking the right questions before you begin the project. It’s important to feel comfortable and make sure the contractor has a good understanding of the work and scope of the remodel before allowing the company to begin work.
