A home renovation is no small decision, so we get a lot of questions before starting a project. Questions like, “How much of an investment will this be?” and “How long will it take?”.
Since every project is unique, there are a few things we consider before answering. To get a better sense of how to answer these questions, we ask things like …
How large is the scope of the project?
Is it a total remodel or just a small cosmetic makeover?

Looking to turn your outdated bathroom into an oasis? Time to start picking out new tile, fixtures, and vanity. This is the fun part but try not to get too carried away.

Once you choose a tile style that you love (and that’s in your budget), stick with it and you will stick to your budget.
Average investment: $35-65k
Length of project: 6-8 weeks
Kitchen remodels can vary based on the scope of the project. That is why the length of the project range is so wide.

Refinishing a basement seems like quite the undertaking and it can be but, the good news is, the remodel won’t disrupt your day to day life too much. Since your basement isn’t being used now you won’t miss not using it for a few more weeks. Finished basements make great media rooms to watch football in the fall or have movie nights with the family. They are also a great way to keep all of your kids’ toys confined to one area.
This question has an endless supply of answers, but no matter your budget or the timeline we will work with you to make your dream projects come to life!
