Home Remodeling - Five Essential Steps

  1. Analyze and evaluate. Think before you jump. What is a reasonable level of expense to achieve the minimum level of quality? Then start evaluating options. Think ROI (return on investment), financing, budget.

  2. Imagine and research. Visit showrooms & trade shows, search Internet, research industry resources. Then decide what fits well within existing spaces and tastes.  Think space, utility, use, color, material, texture.

  3. Plan and discuss. Put your ideas on paper. Use software if you can to conceptualize ideas into real shapes. Talk to relatives, friends, acquaintances who have experience and expertise. Then use an easy and intuitive remodel cost estimating software to create a baseline estimate.

  4. Search and compare. Contact and compare remodel contractors. Use yellow pages, Internet, discussion boards, blogs and of course, references from friends and acquaintances who have already been there.

  5. Inspect and control. Once the deal is signed and construction starts, inspect the work being done regularly. Create a good rapport with the contractor and workmen and try to keep a handle on change orders, schedules, cost overruns, material selections and quality of work.

Five Common-Sense Rules of Successful Cost Estimating

 1. A good estimate must start with a complete understanding of scope of work followed by an accurate quantity takeoff. It's all too easy to miss out identifying items of work in the project. This may be due to absolutely mundane reasons such as missing drawings, details or specs.
