Renovations

What is the cost to remodel per square foot?

There is no cookie-cutter answer. The cost per square foot depends on the type of room, what amenities you want, and the location of project all influences the cost per square foot. Kitchens and bathrooms are the most expensive rooms to remodel and the cost per square foot is significantly more than a family room or bedroom remodel. Additions can also vary significantly depending on things such as first or second story, the foundation needed, type of room, etc. A family room with wood clad windows, hardwood floor, and French doors is very different than a family room with vinyl windows, carpeting, and a traditional sliding door.

What are the benefits of building green?

Green building benefits the planet as well as the home occupants. By using renewed and recycled resources when practical, it may ensure energy efficiency, personal comfort, and healthful indoor breathing.

What kind of warranties does your contract include?

We provide a one-year warranty on construction work.  Usual and customary maintenance on your home must be kept up, but we are there for you if any part of your project needs to be addressed. Please note, this does not necessarily cover the products we install (ie, appliances, fixtures, etc.) as they each come with their own manufacturer’s warranties and each one differs.

Why can’t I wait to pick out my selections?

We build very timely projects. In order to do that, all materials must be ordered and delivered on time to ensure that everything is selected and in route to avoid delays, shortages, back orders, or any problems that may arise. Additionally, other items need special preparation long before they are installed (towel bars have extra support built during the framing stage) or other items such as carpet or hardwood floors have long lead times prior to installation.

Do I need to vacate the premises for a kitchen remodel or room addition?

If we are just doing a kitchen renovation or a room addition, then you do not need to vacate your house. But if we are doing a major or whole house renovation, we do recommend you temporarily move out for your own peace of mind.

Do you recommend a particular season or time of year to begin a renovation or room addition?

We work all year round and have experience working and scheduling for all types of weather.
