Are you having a hard time deciding how to start your home remodeling project? It’s difficult to know what to do and when is the best time. We can help you create a wish list that will prioritize what you want to get out of your home remodel.
Start with what needs to be fixed
If something doesn’t work, it should be at the top of your remodel list. Are the kitchen cabinets patched together and the dishwasher doesn't work? Was there a leak in the bathroom from the old tub and the flooring was damaged? These items should be taken care of first so that your family can continue to get the most out of your home. Make a list of any regular maintenance you need so you can fix those first.
Then consider long-term plans
After the immediate fixes have been taken care of, set some long-term goals. If you are planning to sell in a few years, kitchen remodels, deck installations, and bathroom additions improve a home’s property value. However, if you are planning to continue to live in your home, you should build your remodel around what you would like your home to be. Additional bedrooms, a great room,a dining room large enough to fit your family, a garage extension that accommodates a play room - these are all updates that can improve your daily life and enjoyment in your home.
Finally, make a list of features you wish you had in your home, and reach out to a local contractor. A contractor can give you a quote for the remodel, and can help you figure out which features fit your budget. If you are in our service area, we'd be happy to discuss your renovation options and how we can help.
