Why a Full Home Remodel?

Need more reasons to give in to your next home renovation project? Here are the most common reasons why homeowners do a house remodel:

Maybe you haven’t been inspired to whip up delicious meals in your kitchen because it’s just too cluttered and cramped. Perhaps you’ve been toying around the idea of converting an unused room into a more practical space like an office instead. If so, a whole home remodel can help transform every space in your house into areas that are more functional. An entire house renovation allows you to design spaces that you can truly use and enjoy.

Let’s say you live in a nice neighborhood, it’s close to the kids’ school, it has everything you need and you see your family living there for a long time… it’s perfect, except you’re not really in love with the way your house looks. It’s actually quite common for homeowners to purchase an old, outdated home and later on feel the need to update or improve some areas of it. A whole home remodel can help transform your home from drab to fab! A few interior changes here and there, add a sprinkle of your style and personality into the mix and you can make your home truly yours in no time.

Lifestyle changes every so often – babies don’t stay little for so long, teenagers need their privacy (and distance), and before you know it, you’ve got an 18 year old who’s ready to move out. Similarly, you and your hubby will grow old and might need certain additions to make your home safer and easier to live in. Sometimes an entire home renovation is necessary to accommodate changes in the way you live.

Home Remodeling to Increase Resale Value

If you’re planning to sell your home within the next few years, doing a full remodel can vastly improve its worth. Why? Because most potential buyers prefer a move-in ready home where they can throw all their stuff and live as soon as possible. More importantly, certain features like a bathtub or an extra bedroom can also add appeal to a house and increase its potential value when you do put it on the market. Either way, a whole home remodel is the best way to boost your property’s selling rate!

Full Home Remodel for Safety and Efficiency

Repairing home for safety and efficiency

You probably have a long list of to-do’s for your current home – a new patio or a bathroom remodel. However, there might be hidden things in your home that need proper care and attention too. A leaking roof, cracked windows, or a faulty electrical wiring system are renovation projects that can’t be put off. Likewise older homes are also less technologically advanced compared to newer ones… so certain renovations can increase a home’s energy efficiency and save money in the long run.

Our 5-Step Whole Home Remodel Process

As a premier design-build contractor in San Diego, we follow these steps to keep our home remodel process accurate and efficient:

① Planning and Design Phase – With your vision and our expertise, we can create detailed floor plans, layouts and renderings of your future dream home. We first start with a list of your needs and wants, prioritizing the things that would make your home complete. Then, we will provide you a precise budget quotation and also get started on other important tasks such as hiring subcontractors and on-site inspections.

② Pre-Construction Phase – Once you’ve approved the official design, we can start preparing the licenses, permits and other documents we’ll need to start the remodeling process. Then you’ll be consulting with Shelley, our in-house interior designer, to select materials such as tiles, paint, cabinets, appliances, etc.

Demolition Phase – Once we’re sure that the structure and surrounding areas are safe, we can go through with the demolition. It might look fun in theory but it’s a tough and dirty task. Thus, it’s best to hire a subcontractor that can do the job well and quickly.

Construction Phase – Depending on the scope of your home remodel, this includes repairs, installing fixtures, tiling and painting. We make sure to keep you in the loop every step of the way.

Finishing Phase – We do final touches like installing lightings, cleaning up and generally finding a place for the tiny little things. We also do a final meeting with the homeowner to make sure they are satisfied with the final result of their dream home.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much does it cost to remodel a home?

A whole home remodel can cost anywhere between $40,000 to $500,000. It really depends on the extent and scope of your planned remodel. It’s best to consult a professional design-build firm for more accurate estimates. For more information, you can also read our blog post on an average home remodel cost here.

What is the difference between remodel and renovate?

The terms remodel and renovate are sometimes used interchangeably but they do have varying definitions.

On the other hand, remodeling is more extensive as it can include several things. Remodeling encompasses changing an existing structure, layout or floor plan through demolition and construction.
