Home Remodeling Primer

Know What You Want

Before starting the remodel project, its scale and intent should both be well realized. You should know how big the project will be and what it is meant to accomplish; is it meant to improve your lifestyle or is it meant to increase the value of the home for resale later on? The scale and the intent of the room will help to determine the budget and design direction of the remodel.

Prepare a Plan

This is best done with the assistance of the designer, but you can do it yourself with the help of computer programs. This is the case whether the renovation is a minor one or you are doing a massive overhaul, a solid plan of action will keep you on the right path. We will provide all the assistance you need, but ultimately the budget is your responsibility, so plan carefully and plan wisely.

Get The Details Right

When you deal with an experienced designer, they will request that you start shopping for the various elements you want to put in the remodeled room even before the final plans are complete. This is because the designer wants to get an idea of your vision for what the completed room will look like.

With smaller projects, these elements can be the molding or the window frames; on larger projects, you may need to start picking out things like kitchen countertops, floor tiles, appliances, and more. In addition to helping the designer get a better understanding of what you want, these purchases help to give you an idea of what the project will cost.

Do Not Be Afraid To Scale Back If Necessary

Even the best laid plans can end up going over budget, if you cannot absorb the excess expenditure needed to complete the project, then do not be afraid to scale it back before everything spirals out of control. Instead of canceling the remodel, you can purchase more inexpensive versions of the elements you planned on using in the first place. This can mean more affordable countertops, cheaper tiles, and so on; if the budget ends up too high, then just scale down the project instead of abandoning it altogether.

Avoid Any Last Minute Changes

An aphorism of the construction industry—and indeed most industries—is that the four most expensive words in the English language are, “while you’re at it…” The reason is that, trying to make changes once the project is well underway can cause all sorts of expensive problems. Last minute changes tend to eat up a large chunk of the budget and can contribute to cost overruns.

It is okay to make small changes if something unexpected comes up that requires an adjustment of plans. However, big unnecessary changes should be avoided altogether in order to keep the budget under control.

The Home Remodeling Jobs We Do

Kitchen and bathroom remodeling are some of the most requested remodel jobs by homeowners. It is not hard to see why, they are two of the most frequently used rooms in the home, and they are rooms that everyone wants to be aesthetically pleasing as well as highly functional.

We have years of experience performing kitchen and bathroom remodels that perfectly match the expectations of the homeowner. Whether your remodel is for your own personal satisfaction or it is to prepare the house for resale, Pacific Green Homes will complete the job to the highest of standards.

Kitchen Remodeling

Kitchen renovations are popular projects because of the big difference a new kitchen can make to the look and feel of the home. These projects can be as small as buying new appliances or cabinets, or as large as tearing down walls and rearranging the kitchen altogether. A new kitchen can also have a huge effect on the value of the home by drastically increasing its resale value.

In Los Angeles a kitchen remodel is about $2000 to $4000 more expensive than in the rest of the country. The upside to this is that a kitchen remodel in Los Angeles can increase the market value of the house by 96% to 102% of the construction costs, compared to 80% to 85% in the rest of the country.

Bathroom Remodeling

Homeowners are rarely satisfied with their generic bathrooms and usually want to upgrade them so that they look better, function more efficiently, and are more water and energy efficient. Even though it is generally one of the smaller rooms in the house, a bathroom remodel can be one of the more expensive because it can be one of the more complex.

That is because of the the plumbing and electrical work that sometimes needs to be done. Also, modern homeowners tend to like to have more space in the bathroom, and achieving that goal requires significant construction work. A Los Angeles bathroom remodel ranges in price from $14,500 to $43,000, but can recover over 100% of the construction costs in the retail value of the home.
