Tip #1. Look for Experience
When it comes to luxury home renovations, experience is key. Look for a builder with a proven track record of successful renovations and at least 10 years of experience in the field. This will ensure they have the expertise to handle your project efficiently.
With more than 10 years of experience in the industry, we have built a strong reputation for ourselves as one of the top luxury home renovation builders in the Girona province of Spain. Our portfolio showcases a range of exquisite Mediterranean villas and larger projects such as the renovations of schools. We take pride in our ability to deliver high-quality work and exceptional customer service, which is why many of our clients come to us through referrals and word of mouth. When you choose us as your builder, you can trust that you are in the hands of experienced professionals who will bring your renovation vision to life.
Tip #2. Check for Licensing and Insurance
Ensure the builder you choose has all the necessary licenses and insurance to operate in your area. This will protect you from any legal or financial issues arising during the renovation process.
Tip #3. Ask for References
Don’t be afraid to ask for references from the builder’s past clients. This will give you an idea of their level of professionalism, quality of work, and customer service.
How can I get referrals?
One way to obtain referrals is to ask your builder for a list of references, which includes previous clients who have had similar renovation projects. This allows you to see first-hand how the builder works and what kind of results they achieve. Another way is to check online reviews and testimonials from other clients. Finally, networking can be a great way to get referrals in the luxury real estate market. Attend industry events, talk to people in your social circle, or reach out to real estate agents specializing in luxury properties.
Tip #4. Evaluate Their Portfolio
Review the builder’s portfolio to see if their style and previous work align with your vision for your home renovation. This will help you determine if they are the right fit for your project.

Tip #5. Consider Their Full-Service Capabilities
Choose a builder that offers a full-service approach, including design, legal aspects, and renovations. This will make the process smoother and more efficient, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the renovation process without any added stress.
