How Much is That Pretty Kitchen in the Window?

Spoiler Alert! Probably a Little More Than You Think!

 

It’s probably the #1 question on the mind of every client we sit down with…how much is this going to cost? It seems like such a simple question that we should have a very straightforward answer for, however, there are so many variables involved in every new build or remodel project we work on that it’s often hard to say until we get deeper into the weeds. On the other hand,  as a contractor AND self-confessed HGTV junkies who enjoy binging on real estate and remodeling shows, we certainly understand it’s imperative to have a realistic idea of what a dream kitchen or new addition might actually do to your bank account when all is said and done.

Budgeting for a construction project shouldn’t be mysterious. After all, seeing a few sample numbers on the type of project you’re interested in can help you determine (often in the very early stages before you even talk with a contractor) if your remodel project is even doable or realistic.  So, before you take that next step and start shopping, take advantage of our sample budgetary guide below and see just how much your home renovation dreams may cost!


Bathroom Remodeling Costs

Budgetary Cost Estimate: $25k-$100k

There are so many factors that will affect the cost of your bathroom remodel…from a small powder room to a large master bath with exquisite, high-end materials and fixtures, you can run your “average” costs all the way up to luxury level in a blink of an eye and a swipe of your Amex card. In other words, the size of your space and the materials you ultimately choose will often be the biggest determining factor in your project cost.

Kitchen Remodeling Costs

Budgetary Cost Estimate: $40k-$150k

What kind of kitchen do you envision? Crisp white double stacked cabinets all the way to the ceiling with beautiful marble counters and a range like Le Cornue’s Grand Palais? Or perhaps you want to keep costs reasonable as you can but still end up with a gorgeous looking custom kitchen you’ll be proud to show your friends and family? When it comes to kitchen renovations, the only limits on your dreams will be the ones that you set together with your contractor.

Addition Remodeling Costs

Budgetary Cost Estimate: $240-$600 per square foot

Do you want to build up or do you want to build out? The answer will most likely be the first thing you decide when you sit down with a contractor to start planning your addition construction. Additions are major renovation projects and costs vary widely depending on the structure you’ll be integrating the addition with as well as the materials you choose.

Deck Remodeling Costs

Budgetary Cost Estimate: $33.00 per square foot minimum

Want to expand the living area of your home? A brand new or upgraded deck is a fantastic way to open up your space and bring a little of the outside in. Whether you choose to go with pressure-treated wood, composite or some other type of exotic material, a deck is a popular home improvement and relatively economical way to add value to your property.

Electric Panel Costs

Budgetary Cost Estimate: $3000.00

Planning on a remodel in the near future? Do you know if your electrical system is up to snuff or would your home benefit from an upgrade to handle increased loads and current code requirements? The best time for work on your electrical system is when your walls are open and pre-planning is a must.

Roofing Costs

Budgetary Cost Estimate: $14-$22 per square foot

Do you have cracked or curling shingles or are you seeing an abundance of of granules in places where they shouldn’t be? It may be time to think about a new roof. If you’re lucky, you’ll only have to replace your roof once or twice in your lifetime and it’s a remodel project that should be taken extremely seriously. Roofing contractors and the roofs they install are not at all created equal.
