Remodeling your home is a big project, even if you’re not going full DIY. The professionals at Multi-M Contracting get a lot of questions from our clients and potential clients about renovation costs, timelines, and the general process. We collected some of the most common questions and got our team of experienced contractors to answer them for you!
Which Remodeling Job Should I Do First?
We generally suggest starting with the area you’re most unhappy with because it will lift the feel of your whole house. We also usually suggest that you fix any functional problems before you tackle purely aesthetic ones. That way you’re getting the most out of your living space.
If you’re living in your home, you should probably have the renovations done one room at a time so you’re able to live comfortably. If you’re not living in your home, it can be much faster and more cost-effective to streamline the renovation process and do it all at once.
Do I Need a Building Permit?
Probably. Most major renovations require permits, but when you work with a certified contractor they should take care of applying for and obtaining all necessary permits for the project.
How Much Will My Renovations Cost?
The price of your renovation project will vary depending on a variety of factors. The level of remodeling (i.e. a full gut versus just flooring), the features you choose, the square footage of the room(s), and the complexity of the design.
The national average for a kitchen remodel is $22,000, but yours could cost anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000+ depending on your specific circumstances.
How Long Will My Remodel Take?
This is another question that depends entirely on the type and scale of your remodel. You should take into consideration which room you’re remodeling, how large the space is, and how complex the new design is. Your contractor should give you an estimated timeline that reflects how long the renovation will take based on everything going as planned.
