It’s actually really easy to find a remodeling contractor in North County, San Diego. All you have to do is Google “remodeler [then name your city in North County: Carlsbad, Encinitas, Leucadia, Cardiff, Delmar, Oceanside, Vista, Escondido, Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, Carmel Valley, Poway, Rancho Penasquitos, Fallbrook, Bonsall, Ramona]”, and Google will bestow upon you a vast bounty of results.

Finding a GOOD or maybe even a GREAT remodel contractor in San Diego, North County or not…now that’s another matter entirely! A search engine can’t possibly determine if the North County San Diego remodeling websites it’s returning belong to good San Diego remodelers or the not so good kind. A bad remodeler can be just as savvy at search engine optimization as a good one. He can also just as easily list his company in the Yellow Pages, put a flyer on your windshield or advertise on the radio or in the North County Times.

What a bad contractor can’t do (although there are always exceptions), is get a lot of customers to gush about how great his service, communication, and integrity are. So, the best way to find a high quality remodeling contractor in San Diego North County is to find the online water coolers and see what people have to say about the contractors they’ve actually used.

There are a lot of great websites that provide this very service. One of the most reputable is the Better Business Bureau. By putting in your North County zip code, you can either find a BBB-accredited remodeling business in your area or check up on a San Diego remodeling contractor that you’re considering. Any remodeling company in San Diego that’s been in business for a while should have a BBB profile. The BBB also provides records of any complaints that have been lodged against a company, which can be very informative.

There are also consumer review websites like Yelp, Angie’s List (requires paid subscription) and others, where you can search for North County, San Diego remodelers or follow up on a specific company to see what real customers say about them. Most San Diego remodeling contractors are hyper aware of these websites and actively encourage customers to leave feedback. If you find that a remodeling company is not listed on any of these sites, consider that a red flag.

Lastly, there is a website that I strongly recommend to all homeowners looking for a North County, San Diego remodeler check out.
