If We Add An Addition, Is My Entire Yard Going To Get Destroyed?
We do the best that is humanly possible to minimize the effect we have on the rest of your yard with our equipment and crew. We typically lay down giant pallets to navigate our excavation equipment to other areas of your yard to avoid your yard turning into a giant eye sore. While it's not always perfect, we think ahead and try to protect your yard the best we can.
How Long Should My Project Take?
This depends on the size and scope of your project, and what is found during demolition. For example, a bathroom remodeling project will typically take much less time than a whole house remodeling project. Unforeseen problems can crop up once walls are taken down that require additional work. Ask us for the most reasonable timeframe and stay in touch with us as the project progresses, so you can plan for a finish date.
What Is The Best Way To Budget For My Home Remodel?
Unfortunately there is no “ballpark number” or price-per-square-foot for home remodels. There are many variables that effect the cost of a home remodel including (but not limited to):
- Any necessary changes to the roof line
- Finished material types and hardware to be used
- Placement and condition of current plumbing, wiring and light fixtures
- The age of the home
- The home’s current structural aspects
- Zoning requirements
What Should I Do While A Remodeling Project Happens In My Home?
Most importantly, keep the lines of communication open. Ask us questions. Let us know what your family schedule is and whether you have pets confined somewhere. It’s also important to keep the work areas off limits to children and pets for their safety, and due to extra dust and dirt in your house, keeping the work area off limits will avoid them tracking the dust to other parts of the house.
