Questions To Ask in Starting a Home Remodeling Project
When you make the decision to remodel your home, the remodeler will want to know the answer to personal questions, like:
- What type of lifestyle do the residents maintain?
- What health issues do the residents face?
- Will the home be accommodating a growing family?
- What are the general work habits/schedules of the residents?
To avoid surprises and disappointment, Caliber Construction Group asks all the right questions. This guarantees that once your remodeling project is complete, you will be able to live, work, and play in your home however you see fit.
Here are some important things you should consider when planning your next remodel.
How long do you expect to reside in this home after remodeling?
If you are planning to relocate your family to another home in just 5 years, it makes sense to plan appropriately for that during your remodel. 5 years may seem like a long time, but making extensive and personalized changes to a home may not actually raise its value at all.
Or maybe your home has been passed down generations, as a legacy. If this is the case, you may be considering passing it down to your kids, so selling price is of no consequence. Instead, you should be planning to potentially accommodate young children and possibly even the elderly.
Will the remodeled home need to accommodate anyone with health or physical restrictions?
As your family grows older, you may need to find ways to accommodate them getting around your home safely and without obstacles. Elderly parents or other relatives may need ramps, lift chairs or other special accommodations to live a normal life.
When giving your home a facelift, make sure you have a discussion with your Caliber Construction Group restoration specialist about the need to implement a universal design.
Will it cost more renovating or purchasing another home?
You may see the condition of your home and consider remodeling to be too costly of an option, in comparison to relocating. Be sure to calculate the additional costs of moving such as:
- Closing costs
- Moving expenses
- Real estate agent commissions
