Remodeling FAQs

For a major remodel you should consult a general contractor who knows and understands what it takes to remodel or renovate. Work on a realistic budget. During your consultation you should determine what types of materials you want to use and your contractor should have suppliers that have everything necessary to do the job. Work closely and honestly with your contractor to see that your vision is achievable with your budget.
Don’t take on a project you are not experienced in renovations or don’t have enough time to devote to the project. Many people try to do it themselves, which most likely will end up costing more time and money to fix.
Most times, yes. If you are remodeling a bathroom or kitchen, you may be without use of those rooms for a while. Be prepared to shower in a different room, or to have to order a lot of pizza and chinese food.
The big picture is always prep work, shopping for materials, labor, installation, finishing and clean-up; but there are many sub parts to each of these.
Putting your ideas into a proper design. You can’t proceed without knowing what you want the finished product to look like and everything flows more naturally from that. Talk to your contractor or a designer. Both should be experienced in these areas.
Interview 2 or 3 general contractors. We all work a little differently, so you need to make sure you like their ideas and approach. A good contractor should be able to give you a referral list of former clients and their contact information, so you can feel free to call some of them to get an idea of what their experience was like. Most former construction clients will be happy to honestly share both the good and the bad.
If the house is 20 years old or more, redoing the kitchen and master bath should give you the best bang for your buck. Many older kitchens and baths look dated and can really hurt the value, especially if you have neighbors who have already invested in this type of construction work. Put yourself in a buyer’s shoes, if you had a choice between an old kitchen or a new one, which would you choose?
Decide if you want to move or change any fixtures, or change the overall design of the bathroom. Everything flows from that.
Depends. A small remodel like a kitchen, bathroom or basement project can be much less expensive. But if you are thinking of doing a complete gut and refinish, you may want to consider a new home. Remember that in order to properly remodel, you have to deconstruct in order to reconstruct, which also translates into more labour and later disposal of waste materials.
