Frequently Asked Questions
A: Cabinets account for about half the total cost of the project and will have the greatest impact on your budget. They range in price considerably based on quality, the type of material they are made of, and whether they are stock (ready made in specific sizes) or custom (produced specifically for your kitchen in whatever sizes are needed).
The material you choose for surfaces including counters, backsplashes and floors can also account for variations in price.
Other key elements that factor in to the equation are talent and workmanship. In the remodeling business, you tend to get what you pay for. An accomplished designer, skilled sub-tradesmen and expert installation crew may cost more. But you’ll appreciate their ability every time you use your kitchen.
A: Each year Remodeling magazine publishes its Cost vs. Value Report, which compares the cost of home improvements with their recouped value when the home is sold. In the 1999 survey, the magazine compared construction costs for 12 projects, with estimates of the projects’ value in a one-year resale scenario. Real estate agents and appraisers in 60 residential markets across the country provided return-on-investment estimates.
A: It can take up to a month or more for a major remodeling project. The time frame is greatly reduced if we are producing only a drawing (floor plan and one elevation) for the municipality. Structural changes require designs from a structural engineer or an architect.
