The Remodeling Roadmap Series

10 Questions to ask
Before You Hire a Remodeling Contractor


"Who will be at the site and how will it be supervised?

It’s important to know how the contractor plans on handling site supervision of both its own staff and that of subcontractors. The project supervisor is the person you will be interacting with most often during your remodel. Make sure he or she is enthusiastic, deferential and qualified. Also, you may ask how many jobs your project supervisor will be handling concurrently.

Should You Remodel or Just Move?


The question is, do you stay where you are and remodel your existing home or do you pack it up and move to another house that will accommodate your needs? It is a hard decision to make and one that not only involves an investment of thousands of dollars but one that will subject your family to considerable emotional strain.

Value Engineering


Value Engineering provides a strategic mechanism for the reduction in your outlay of cash through savings in either the cost of a specific item, a system of construction, project staffing or in the overall construction timeline-  all of which cumulatively produce a lower total investment.


In more understandable terms, Value Engineering involves finding one product, installation procedure and/or service, that delivers the same function, measurable performance, warranty and life-cycle cost for replacement as the specified installation, product and or service but at a decreased cost.
