Home Remodeling & Renovation Frequently Asked Questions
What measures will be taken to protect my home from dust and debris that result from construction
We cover floors with rosin paper, Ram board, and drop cloths, depending on the circumstances. We block off the areas surrounding the construction area with temporary plastic walls. We also cover furniture in the surrounding area to protect it. And we clean up. Everyday.
How can I prepare my home for the project?
It will depend upon the scope of work. You will be instructed by your remodeling consultant as to what exact steps you need to take. But, generally speaking, you’ll want to clear out the area being worked on of all your personal belongings that can be removed. Although we cover the areas surrounding our work area, you’ll want to protect your furniture from dust with plastic and/or sheets.
Who will take care of securing permits and/or drawings?
We will provide you with all of the required permits and/or Engineered Drawings. We are a state licensed building contractor and we are current on all of the local building codes and requirements.
Do I need to have design ideas before I start the renovation process?
Absolutely not. But it helps if you do. Our designers are here to help generate ideas or work through the ones you already have.
What type of return on investment can I expect from remodeling my kitchen or bathroom if I sell my home?
The return on investment for remodeling a kitchen or bathroom can be over 100%. Meaning some people will actually make a substantial profit on the money they invest in their kitchen or bathroom.
Should I keep a tub for resale?
The rule of thumb on keeping a tub – if you’re going to live in the house for five years or more, you should design and build for you and not some perspective buyer.
How long will my project take?
Projects vary in size, but a typical kitchen or bathroom remodel takes around 5 to 6 weeks. A complete renovation of a home or condo typically takes around 12 to 16 weeks.
