What factors influence the cost of my renovation?

The cost of your renovation is influenced by various factors, making it a nuanced process. Key determinants include the quality and type of materials, along with the scope of work. Following a complimentary on-site consultation, we can typically provide a preliminary estimate within 15%. Subsequently, we enter into a pre-construction agreement to finalize material selections and define the project scope. At the conclusion of this process, you'll receive a fixed-price contract for your renovation.

How long will my renovation be?

The duration of your renovation depends on multiple factors. For a single-story home of around 1200 square feet, anticipate 8-10 weeks for a full renovation, and approximately 6-8 weeks for a basement development. Larger homes over 2000 square feet may take 2-4 months for full renovations, while additions can range from 3-6 months.

Should I choose the cheapest quote?

While low prices don't necessarily equate to subpar work and high prices don't guarantee excellence, the key is finding the right fit for your project. We encourage clients to select a contractor they can envision working with for the duration of the project. When considering prices, it's crucial to understand that contractors bidding on the same materials and scope of work will likely present similar quotes. If cost is a primary factor, ensure each contractor receives a detailed scope of work and material selection list for accurate comparisons.
