Most families decide to remodel their homes because they’ve outgrown it but don’t want to move. Sometimes renovations in one room grow into a fuller project, eventually leading to a whole-house remodel.
Remodeling your entire home can be an overwhelming venture. There are all kinds of decisions to think about and other considerations to make. Even thinking about how widespread the remodeling project should be is another big choice.
At the end of the day, it’s essential to look at this project as an investment. Even if you decide to change the layout of the home, it’s a worthwhile investment that raises the value of your home.
Start with a Plan in Mind
All large projects need a plan to keep things on track. There are too many aspects of construction and remodeling to start working on a whim. Anything you want to improve or change in your home should be researched, considered, and discussed thoroughly.
You can find one in magazines or home improvement stores if you don’t have a vision yet. Before capitalizing on your favorite dreams, think about how they might fit into the house’s current layout. Don’t forget to think about the budget. It helps us if you can identify 5 to 10 must-have wants during your free consultation.
Another factor to consider is how much of the home you want to remodel. Do you want to renovate every room or just a large section of the house? Will we work with the square footage already available, or are you interested in a new room or even a second floor? If you have additions in mind, we’ll discuss whether you need permits. Of course, each of these questions depends on the budget you set for your Mesa AZ home remodeling project.
Style and Design
Anyone who owns a home has a personal style they want to liven it up. Still, it’s a good idea to pick something that will stand the test of time, especially if you’re going to sell your home in the future. Don’t rely on trendy styles that you’ll want to change in another few years’ time. Likewise, any customization explicitly meant for your needs can make a house hard to resell later.
As one of the most extensive projects you can take on, whole-house remodeling has no real limit on the budget you can put on it. The amount of work that we will need to do in the house is considerable. After all, there is the design, the destruction, rebuilding, customization, and additional add-ons that aren’t already in your home. All of this factors into the final price of the project. In other words, it comes down to how much you’re willing to spend to invest in your property.
A home remodeling project involves a substantial amount of planning. Whether you’re making simple changes or completely gutting the interior for something new, we can help make your dream come true. Our professionals will discuss all of your thoughts and ideas, as well as your budget and expectations. We’ll bring our hands-on approach to the table and offer a realistic vision of what we can accomplish in a reasonable amount of time. Call us today to schedule your free consultation!
Fewer remodeling projects lead to more benefits — and possible headaches — than a full kitchen remodeling. Even if you decide you have the courage to try and tackle a complete kitchen remodeling in Mesa AZ, it can take many months to finish, and you might not have a kitchen for several weeks. Hiring a contractor may be the more expensive route, but our professionals get the job done fast and well.
A brand new kitchen dramatically increases the value of your estate, unlike any other room. It also makes your home feel more livable in general. Some of the best kitchens also serve as a center for social gatherings. Honestly, it is a project worth the investment as long as you can avoid becoming overwhelmed.
If you don’t know what you want in your new kitchen, think about the frequent problems you always have now. Do you hate cooking in the kitchen because there isn’t enough space to do it effectively? Is there too little space to handle your dishes and the pantry food? Are the appliances older than you are? Do you simply hate how ugly the kitchen looks now?
Whatever the problems, make a priority list of things you’d love to change about your kitchen. This helps us understand which features you definitely need and which ones would just be nice to have.
Planning the Design
With your priority list, we can come up with a realistic idea of a new kitchen that fits your budget and needs. This gives us a concrete plan to start working towards the next steps of the process.
Hiring a Contractor
It’s entirely possible to remodel a kitchen by yourself. It’s even a practical option if you have long-term experience performing DIY home repairs and have all the skills required. You’ll also need plenty of spare time to handle the work on your own. It’s not really a choice for the faint-of-heart, though, because of the sheer work involved in a remodel.
The answer, then, is to hire a general contractor. These firms specialize in managing large projects from the first step all the way to the end. Our company has an excellent track record in Mesa, AZ, and we will provide you with a fair and honest quote for the work.
Preparing to Live without a Kitchen
Depending on how much change you would like to see in your kitchen, there is a chance you will not have access to it for some portions of the project. Sometimes, you will not be able to access the appliances or the plumbing while that region of the house is shut off. More often, you will not have access to appliances like the stove or the sink because we remove them to replace them.
Extensive remodeling projects can render your kitchen inaccessible for several weeks at a time. It’s a good idea to have a backup plan for feeding yourself and your family during these periods.
To figure out where you want to take your bathroom remodeling, first look at the space you already have.
If you want to renovate an existing bathroom, what problems do you currently have that you want to change? Do you want to change little details like the mirrors and lighting to update the look? Do you want a significant overhaul that improves all aspects of the room? Knowing the answers to these questions will help us paint a picture of the final product you want.
Whether your remodeling project is worth the investment in terms of higher real estate value depends on what your neighbor’s homes have in their bathrooms. If everyone around you has one-bathroom houses, then yours becomes much more interesting if you add a second bathroom.
Consider Future Plans
Most of the plans surrounding your bathroom renovation should depend on what you want to do in the future. If you intend to move out of your home within the next decade, a smaller project that adapts to the current mainstream tastes helps improve your chances of selling the house for a higher value. If you want to stay in your home for the long-term, then it makes sense to build a custom room meant just for you.
Establish Your Budget
Of course, remodeling a bathroom is not an inexpensive venture, so we’ll help you spend wisely during this time. Look realistically at your budget to think about what kinds of changes you can afford. Our company provides high-quality materials and high-quality workmanship, so you never have to worry about compromising on quality. We understand how heavily families use toilets, sinks, and faucets daily; quality is of the utmost importance.
If you need to stick to a budget, consider tackling a smaller remodel with just a handful of changes. For example, you might upgrade the sink but decide to leave the floor for another time. You can still meet your budget without compromising on quality.
Be Prepared for the Unexpected
It’s also wise to think about the potential for your budget to run over, depending on the situation in your current bathroom. It can add to the final cost of the project if we come across something that needs repair. That’s why we always recommend adding about 20 percent to the budget than you think you’ll spend; you never know what can come up once work begins, especially in the bathroom.
Even a small plumbing leak could lead to invisible damage that we won’t see until we remove the wall coverings or the floor. It’s critical to repair moldy and water-damaged structures to the subfloor and framing before we can continue any part of the renovation. Even if you don’t intend to resell your home, leaving mold is bad for your health and the structure of the house.
Other problems that might come up during renovation include out-of-date plumbing or unsafe wiring. Experienced bathroom contractors can anticipate this happening, but there’s no way to know for sure until we pull up the surface and look behind it.
Planning the Design
Once you have an idea of how much you can spend, it’s time to get in touch with our remodeling contractors. We have a showroom of our remodeling design services and can help you zero in on the exact changes you’d like to see in your home. Our professionals can help draft different layouts and design choices to give you an idea of how your new bathroom will look before we start any work.

If you love your neighborhood but feel like your current house no longer meets your needs, then home additions could be the answer.
Home additions give you the ability to reconfigure property you already live in without having to move to another place. Adding to your current home expands its square footage and makes it more comfortable for your family to live in.
Why Get a Home Addition?
Families decide to expand their homes for a multitude of reasons. Often, the main goal is to solve a problem like an inefficient layout or insufficient living space. You might want to add a home office, a guest bedroom, a new master bedroom, a family room, or anything else you can think of. You might even add an in-law suite or an adjacent living space to generate rental income.
What options are available for a home addition?
The sky is the limit when it comes to adding to your home. In fact, we might surprise you when we show you our showroom of past projects. No matter how you intend to use the new space in your home, we have ways to make it aesthetically pleasing, unique, and fully functional without compromise. We can even include custom-designed aspects you want to solve your personal needs.
Does the addition have to match?
Again, this decision is up to you. Some homeowners prefer a seamless addition that looks like it is part of the original construction. Others want to add something new and distinct to their property. Our past clients come from both groups and everything in between; we design home additions according to your dreams and desires.
How much does a home addition cost?
Several factors determine how much you’ll pay for adding construction to your home. The most significant factor is how large your new addition will be, but the structure and other details all matter. Our professionals are capable of offering suggestions to help stay within your budget without compromising on the quality of materials or construction.
The Value of Adding to Your Home
In most cases, increasing the amount of finished square footage can significantly improve the value of your home. In fact, you might be able to raise the value of your house by more than 3 percent for every 1,000 square feet added. If you want to add a new guest suite to your home or finish your basement, give us a call to schedule a free consultation so our team can help you immediately.
Our in-house managers, contractors, and designers have decades of combined experience designing and establishing home additions that meet the needs of your changing lifestyle. These additions allow homeowners to love their homes for several more years, sparing them the hassle of having to find a new home.
Adding a guest suite to your home lets you have more overnight guests since they’ll have their own space. You won’t have to set them up in your kids’ room or opt to sleep on the couch. When you don’t have guests over, the suite can double as a home office or a quiet place to read books.
Of course, these rooms can be more than offices and bedrooms. We can design a game room or an additional den with modular furniture that assembles as a fold-down bed and couch. This creativity gives homeowners the ability to enjoy the full house all year while still keeping an area for guests over the holidays.
You’re the king or queen of your domicile, so why shouldn’t your bedroom live up to the task? Maybe you’d like to have a master suite with a walk-in closet, a sitting area, and a sizeable connecting bathroom for two. This addition might be just the thing to turn your home into something truly majestic.
Thinking Beyond Bedrooms
With a local permit, we can also add another floor to your home — and that has a 65 percent return on investment, making it worth the effort. We can also build a patio or deck that makes your backyard part of your daily activities. Whatever you can dream of, we can work out a plan to make it happen.
Wherever you want to take your home additions project, our contractors are up to the task. Get in touch with us for your free consultation, and one of our professionals will get in touch with you!
