Buyer beware: spotting Dallas home remodel scams

When you are planning remodeling of your Dallas home, you are probably concerned about money. Of course, home building and remodeling is expensive, and you want to be sure that your money is invested in your home value, not in someone else's shady business. 
Unfortunately, unscrupulous contractors are common in the Dallas area. These contractors may be unlicensed and inexperienced, leaving you with shoddy work on your house; or they may be outright scam artists who will take your money with no plans of completing the work. These unscrupulous contractors prey on budget-conscious homeowners, offering deals that seem too good to be true...and they are. 
The Better Business Bureau put out a list of warning signs to help you spot a potential rip-off contractor. 
You understandably want the best deal for your money, but when it comes to home remodeling, the best investment is with a credible, experienced, professional contractor who can provide references of their work. 
Unique Properties is committed to ethical business, quality work, and customer satisfaction. Call us about your home build or remodel plans in Dallas.

Why customers choose us for Dallas home remodel

Unfortunately, it is all to rare to hear people rave about their experience with a custom home or Dallas home remodel project. There are so many things that can go wrong, and frequently do. How often have you heard someone say that their remodel was done on time, on budget, with attention to detail, and people they were pleased to work with? 
Take our customer, Lisa Hill's review of her Dallas area bathroom remodel: 
"Mike and his team were professional and courteous from the moment they arrived. His attention to details and experience really showed in the final product. Our 1950's bathroom was transformed into a modern space for less than we imagined. Mike made some great suggestions on how to save us money and worked 10 hour days to get the work done in our timeframe. Thanks to Mike and Unique Properties for a superior job." 
We are pleased to get this kind of feedback again and again from our customers, and we are committed to continuing to have the one of the best reputations of any general contractor in the Dallas, Texas metro area.

Customer review on complete Dallas home remodel

The most important measure of our success as a business is making sure that our customers rave about their Dallas home remodel. Whether its a bathroom, kitchen, outdoor space, or addition, we hold ourselves to a high standard of customer satisfaction.
We want to make sure that our customers are satisfied, not only  with the way their home looks and functions, but with our timeliness, integrity as far as budget, and that their property is treated with respect and left clean after the job. 
We are honored to get great feedback from our customers, like Jason Haynsworth who had a complete remodel of his family's home, pictured here. Jason describes his experience with us:
"My wife and I purchased a 2700sf ranch home with the intent of a complete, custom remodel. Because we were planning on spending over $100,000 on the job, we spoke with 10+ contractors and decided to go with Mike for the project. The result was incredible. Mike went above and beyond what we expected and delivered an unbelievable result for us. Nearly every surface in the house was touched: new open-concept kitchen, 4 remodeled bathrooms (including over 150sf of 1 inch glass tile in the master shower), flooring everywhere (natural wood, marble, travertine), trim throughout, custom built kitchen, bath, and office cabinets, custom built stone fireplace, new texture and paint, windows, French doors, 2 hot water heaters on recirculating pump, 2 electrical panels, etc. We were happy with each trade that Mike brought on to help - wood floor guys, tile, trim, painters, granite, electrician, plumber, mason, etc. He was also hands on, completing much of the loose ends work himself. I don't have enough positive things to say about Mike and his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a high-end remodel at a reasonable cost. "
