Benjamin Construction and Landscaping does more than create beautiful lawns. And while we do provide professional landscape design our team of contractors are also skilled at remodels. Remodeling any part of your home is a big project. For some people, this can be an exciting DIY project, and for others, they would prefer that a professional handle everything. There are different groups of people that you can work with when remodeling your home. If you plan on taking more of the DIY approach, you could consider hiring a handyman to do the small things you aren’t as comfortable doing, like installing the plumbing or electrical fixtures. If you want to be involved in the decision making but have a small crew do most of the work, then hiring a remodeling contractor is the perfect solution for you. The third option is if you don’t want to do any of the legwork and make yes or no decisions for you remodel, in this case, you would want to hire a design-build firm.
The main concern for any remodel is the cost. There are many things you should understand about the price of remodeling your home. The first thing is that it is challenging to give out a price point based on square footage. Think about it like this; if one person is remodeling their 100 square foot kitchen, they might want different cabinets, countertops, and lighting than someone else with the same sized kitchen. Both of the projects are the same size but would be very different price points. When you are discussing your remodeling plans with the team at Benjamin Construction and Landscaping, we can give you a ballpark estimate of what your remodel might cost based on similar projects that we have done.
Another thing to keep in mind when thinking about the price of your remodel is that the remodeling shows on TV aren’t realistic. Many people love to watch the HGTV shows where they create beautiful kitchen and bathroom remodels and the entire home looks marvelous. But remember that it is on television. Most often, the production companies make financial contributions to the project, and big brand names donate their products to get TV exposure. Most of the furniture and decorations throughout the house are staged and returned after filming. The price they give is much lower than what it really would have cost.
When deciding on a contractor for your home remodel, there are several factors that you should verify before allowing them to work on your home. Appropriate credentials are one of the most important things to look for in a contractor. At Benjamin Construction and Landscaping, we have an A+ rating on the Better Business Bureau, and we stand behind all our work with a written warranty!
Deciding to remodel any part of your home requires a lot of planning and attention to detail. Our clients are the most important thing to us, which is why we take the time to sit down and discuss all the features of their remodel before we begin any work. We want to ensure everything that we do is how you want it. During this discussion, we will determine a budget for your remodel, which will help determine the types of products that are available options. Countertops, cabinets, flooring, and appliances can all drive a remodel budget price up very quickly. Determining a realistic budget, in the beginning, will help to make these decisions easier.
Another benefit of working with remodeling contractors is the knowledge and expertise that comes with them. At Benjamin Construction and Landscaping, we know what kind of permits, regulations, and codes, there are surrounding your remodeling project. Doing these projects yourself can cause serious complications when everything you worked on isn’t up to the safety guidelines or within the cities building codes. We help take the stress off of you by acquiring all of the necessary paperwork needed before we start and complete the project.
