Whether you’re updating your bathroom, re-designing your kitchen or taking on a whole home transformation project, remodeling can be a huge undertaking for you and your family. Before you start knocking down walls, it’s important to talk to the experts and do plenty of research and planning. As daunting as this may sound, we promise it will pay off in the long run.
Keep in mind: When you work with an all-inclusive home remodeling company, the greater your chances of finishing your renovation on time and, most importantly, on budget. At Luther Construction Home Renovations our goal is always to adhere to the budget, as well as avoid any issues that can lead to costly delays.
While no two remodeling jobs are the same, the planning process of a remodeling project is pretty universal. When collecting estimates, always speak to a wide range of qualified professionals. Never hesitate to request recommendations from their previous customers — client testimonials can be golden.
Assess Your Current House
Make a list of the good and bad aspects of your home. During this stage, enlist the help of experts to identify any potential structural issues, especially if you have noticed any warning signs, such as rotting, leaking or cracking.
Create a Wish List
From functional, structural and styling perspectives, identify and prioritize your wish list. At Luther Construction Home Renovations, we take the time to listen to our client’s specific wishes. We believe that the end result should be the customer’s dream not the designer’s vision. Our professionals provide tremendous attention to detail, including the determination of all choices that need to be made.
Hire a Professional
If you’re planning a major house renovation, you will likely need support from both designers and architects. And as we stated earlier, it’s much more cost effective to work with a remodeler who can help you with both. After all, an expert eye at this stage can add enormous value. At Luther Construction Home Renovations, we have a trained team of field personnel driven to achieve your vision. We constantly surround ourselves with people who work every day to achieve each individual client’s execution plan, from start to finish.
With a home remodel, it’s important to ensure you finance the project in the most cost-effective way. It may be that you have to take out a personal loan, or that you have to refinance your current home loan using equity in your home. At Luther Construction Home Renovations, we have a true and real understanding of actual ( not estimated) costs, so when a contract is offered, the amount on the signed contract will be the same ( or very close) to the cost of the conclusion of the project.
While watching your dream come to life is exciting, it can also be frustrating. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, it can seem like you’ve lost control of your home to a wide range of workers coming and going, and leaving you in a constant state of disarray. For many people, home remodeling is a new endeavor where expectations are high and sometimes not met. It’s our job as remodeling contractors to prevent that from happening.
Luther Construction Home Renovations understands there are many questions from the homeowner, as well as occasional challenges, during the remodeling process. Here are some common things you may encounter so there are few, if any, surprises.
COMINGS & GOINGS
We respect you property and your privacy. While having workers coming and going at certain times may be inevitable, we will always keep you informed in advance so you know what to expect. Work is only performed during previously agreed-upon hours to minimize stress on your family life. Depending on depth and scope of renovation, you may need to move out during some of the remodeling stages. Be sure to factor this aspect into the game plan so you’re prepared.
One common customer fear is if a projected six- to eight-week project runs over, lasting several months. However, it shouldn’t be a worry if you choose a home remodeling contractor, like Luther Construction Home Renovations that truly respects your time. We understand that you want the work completed as quickly as possible, and we do everything in our power to make that happen.
The #1 remodeling nightmare is that the final cost on a custom remodeling project has little resemblance to the upfront cost that was presented when the initial contract was signed. We call this “cost creep”. If your budget is not handled correctly, cost creep will become an absolute factor of your remodeling project. We provide a breakdown of project scope, line-by-line, giving each customer Cost Assurance.
We use only the highest-quality materials, and install everything from maximum dependability. By combining superior materials, skilled workmanship, and the industry’s best warranties, you can be assured that your remodel or home addition represents a smart total investment – plus, it’s one that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come.
MINOR INCONVENIENCE = OVERALL HAPPINESS
Our promise is to always be honest and upfront. Our customers tell us the finished result is well worth any minor inconveniences. We do everything we can to minimize disruption in your home and your life. You have our promise that we are experts at limiting the “downsides’ of remodeling, communicating clearly with you from the start. Our goal is to keep your inconvenience to an absolute minimum.
