How many estimates do I really need?
Only one, if you are comfortable that your remodeling contractor will get the job done to your satisfaction and your budget. These days just getting an estimate is a task in itself. Trust is very important in choosing a construction company! One of the biggest myths today in remodeling is that you need three estimates. Find a contractor you can build a relationship with.
Do I really need to permit my project?
Absolutely! Permitting makes sure that your project is being built to National Building codes. City inspections could be viewed as an insurance policy. Inspections of the work performed insure that the project is being built for your safety.
Why should I remodel my home?

What could increase the value of my home?
A nationwide statistical study released in May adds further weight to existing evidence about the correlation between certain house components and the price of the home.
How long does it take to remodel a kitchen (on an average)?
Usually it takes 2 to 3 months dependent on kitchen size and details involved in the project. The first step is to take measurements. We then supply the customer with a 3 dimensional sketch so they will be able to better envision their future kitchen. We also provide a sample of the cabinet door, with the wood color and style that the customer had chosen.
After appoval we move on with the process. Building custom cabinets can take 4 to 8 weeks (depending on the size and the amount of detail in the kitchen), we then install the custom cabinets, floors, countertops, plumbing, electrical which can take another 4 to 6 weeks.
What is the first step to building a room addition?
The blue print. We have an architect that will provide a blue print for you. Should you prefer to work with your own architect, that is also a possibility. We will cooperate with your architect from the beginning of the concept to the end of the remodel.

Not necessarily! Actually, most of our customers stay at home during the project. We try our best not to disturb the home’s normal activities.
