Remodeling 101

Remodeling a home is a great deal different from new home construction. Every job is unique and involves new construction, but also some demolition of select areas of the existing home, as well as the need to tie in the new with the old. Depending on the scope of work, a number of items must be accounted for, including structural elements, utilities, wiring, and HVAC.  Care must also be taken to protect the original home from damage.

All remodels must be priced on an an individual basis.  Each job presents a unique opportunity to solve problems, present options and gain historical knowledge that we can use as a base for future work.

We review each project carefully and meet with you on site to discuss both the plan and the cost. While it is not possible to give pricing without seeing the job and determining the extent of work, we have done extensive custom remodel work…

…that said, here’s an idea of the typical project costs for the most common remodels that we do.
