I’d like to remodel my home, what’s the best way to go about it?
If you are thinking about remodeling, you probably already have a good idea of what you would like to do. Finding the right contractor for your job is half the battle. Get estimates and be sure you are comparing “apples with apples”. Cost can play a large role in many of the choices for your project. Accepting a bid with a low estimate may not always be the best choice. Make sure you get all the details and ask if pricing is “All Inclusive”. Convey all of your desires for your remodeling project to prospective contractors and they will be able to elaborate on additional possibilities. Communication is key; before, during and even after your remodel is completed.
How much will my remodeling project cost?
Its very important to establish a realistic budget that will allow you to make the changes that you desire. There are many variables that play a large factor in the cost of any remodeling project. The best way to determine price is to let us know what you would like to have done. Visit our Estimate Request Page and provide as much information about your upcoming remodeling project as possible. You may also call us anytime at (414) 807-0323 to set up an appointment for a free estimate.
How long will it take to complete my remodeling project?
We take pride in our record of finishing our remodeling jobs on time. On average a complete Bathroom Remodeling Project takes 2-3 weeks from the start of installation to completion. A Kitchen Remodel takes 3-4 weeks and a Basement Finishing job takes 4-5 weeks. While many materials are readily available, specific materials may need to be ordered weeks ahead of time. Its always a good idea to plan ahead to insure timely results.
Can I do some of the work myself?
Many homeowners enjoy working on their remodeling project. We are more than happy to provide just the essential assistance you need to complete your project. We also offer Consultation Services for the hard core do-it-yourselfers.
Can I provide my own material?
Our specialized material prices are very competitive and most often we can supply them at a lower cost. While we will allow this, in most cases it may not be advantageous to do so.
Do you have references?
Yes. Many of our customers have written testimonials for our work which can be found on our Testimonials Page at the link to the left. Upon request we will be happy to supply you with a list of our customers.
Are you licensed & insured?
Yes. As well as being a Certified Dwelling Contractor with the State of Wisconsin we are licensed and bonded with the City of Milwaukee and we are insured through Midwest Family Mutual Insurance Company and will provide a certificate of insurance prior to the start of the job.
Do I need to leave my home during the remodeling process?
No. In fact most of our customers stay at home during the remodeling process. If we are remodeling your only bathroom we can if necessary, guarantee that you have a working toilet at the end of each day.
Do I have to get involved with the city for permits or will you provide them?
We will deal with your local municipalities and obtain the necessary permits as part of our service.
Does the entire job include electrical, plumbing, etc.?
We like to price our remodeling jobs as “all inclusive”, eliminating undesired cost over-runs. If there is concern about the possibility of hidden problems we will mention it up front, ruling out any surprises. We have local Licensed Electrical & Plumbing Contractors that we have formed close working relationships with and include allowance prices for their services in our estimates. There is no need for you to find additional contractors
