Top 3 Reasons You Need a Home Remodel

Remodeling your home is a big decision. You have a multitude of choices to make, guided by your priorities, aesthetics and budget. How do you get the most out of your home remodel? How do you know that it’s time for a refresh? Know the signs that it’s time to remodel when they arise, plus learn how to pick the best custom home builder for your project.

Shifting Needs

Families change over time — and so do their needs. Maybe you had young children when you first moved in and you needed plenty of space to grow. What can you do with that extra space now that they’re grown and leaving home? Even if they’re not, how do you adapt your existing home to accommodate your current living situation? An award-winning custom builder can transform old spaces and add new ones, adapting your home to suit your current needs.

Required Repairs 

No matter how state-of-the-art your home is at move-in time, repairs will eventually be needed. Periodic maintenance is key to enjoying your spaces. From repairing a roof to replacing appliances, repairs aren’t just a necessary part of homeownership: They’re also opportunities to upgrade, refresh and breathe new life into your pride and joy. The right custom home builder has expertise, integrity and a collaborative approach to achieve excellent results within your scope and budget.

Archaic Style

Some vintage design elements get new life in a modern home. Mid-century modern floor-to-ceiling windows? Absolutely. Shag carpet and wood paneling in the den? Not so much. Fresh updates to your interiors and exteriors can improve its comfort, style and curb appeal. Working with a custom home builder can ensure that you get the results you desire.

Hiring Your Custom Home Builder

Once you know that you’re ready to remodel, a vital next step is choosing a home builder. Research is vital, you need to do your homework. Verify each builder’s licensing, insurance and bonded status. Read customer reviews, check out references and speak to prospective renovators about your desired scope and budget. You should also ask each builder a few important questions:

  •   How long will my project take? 
  •   Will the same team always work on my project?
  •   Will I have a dedicated project manager?
  •   Do you warranty your service and materials? 
  •   How do you protect your clients’ properties?
