How much is my project going to cost per square foot?
This is a tough question to answer because there are so many variables in additions and renovations. Each project is very different so a detailed take off of materials and labor is made for each project.
Why should I use a local remodeling contractor?
Most remodeling contractors are accustomed to making the new project blend with your existing home, such as keeping the addition floors level with the existing home floor levels. With the down turn in housing, remodeling has remained steady in this area. Home owner's like the neighborhoods and opt to remodel rather than move. Many of the homes in this area are older and are in need of remodeling and the local contractor knows the local trends.
What is the best investment for my remodeling budget?
Many of the homes in this area have out of date kitchens and baths. This past year has seen many request for proposal for upgrade kitchens and baths. This use of your remodeling budget will increase the value of the home and will catch a buyers eye if you decide to sell. Additions are also a good investment, whether it is an extra bedroom and bath or kitchen addition. Basement finishes are also good investments creating more livable space under your existing roof.
