Your Home Remodeling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

The average cost to remodel a house is $15 to $60 per square foot or $20,000 to $100,000 for completely renovating a 3-bedroom home. Only renovating a kitchen or bathroom costs $100 to $250 per square foot. A kitchen remodel costs $10,000 to $50,000, while a bathroom remodel costs $5,000 to $25,000.

Hire general contractors instead of unlicensed handymen for large home renovation projects. After creating design plans with an architect or interior designer, a general contractor gets the permits, arranges subcontractors, buys the building materials, and handle inspections. Design-build remodelers take care of the whole process from design to installation.

Hiring a specialized contractor is recommended for specific projects like installing fixtures, roofing, or kitchen cabinets. Minor updates may require an interior designer to plan, while large projects likely require an architect or a structural engineer to plan and create architectural drawings.

Remodeling contractors plan, manage, and install cabinets, flooring, tiling, light fixtures, windows, countertops, knock down or replace walls, painting, replacing plumbing fixtures, and adding other finishes. Remodelers can completely change the look and floorplan of a home or individual rooms.

Most remodeling projects have a 50% to 85% return on investment. The top remodeling projects that return more than 85% of your investment are siding replacement, garage door replacement, a new bathroom addition, and replacing windows and roofing.

Here are the 10 steps for a successful home remodeling project:

  1. Make a list of all the updates desired.
  2. Plan the layout with an interior designer or architect.
  3. Research all the materials and fixtures you want and have a good idea of any custom elements.
  4. Research contractors and get at least three in-person estimates.
  5. Agree on budget and timeframe, and sign the contract.
  6. Plan the design, get permits, and order the materials.
  7. Contractors start the tear out by gutting everything and fixing any unexpected problems such as leaks or mold.
  8. Rerouting plumbing or electrical updates if fixtures are changing locations.
  9. Installing windows, cabinets, flooring, tiling, fixtures, lighting, and painting.
  10. A final walkthrough to ensure everything has been completed to your satisfaction.

Home loans such as the FHA 203(k), 203(b), and Fannie Mae HomeStyle loans let you borrow money to purchase a home and fix it up. Other options include home equity loans, cash-out refinancing, and personal loans.

Home remodeling costs for homes that are used as personal residences are not tax-deductible. However, home improvement expenses help reduce the amount of taxes you owe when you sell the house for a profit. Remodeling costs are tax-deductible for a home office or if modified for disabilities.

Some states offer tax rebates by making your home more energy-efficient or by installing solar panels.

Hiring a local home remodeler requires planning accordingly, asking questions, and learning their work process. Choose the best home remodeling contractor by:

  • Get at least three in-person house renovation quotes to compare.
  • Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
  • Read reviews and check out their previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Pick specialized contractors over general ones if it’s a specific project.
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Ask for a full itemized contract in writing in case of a dispute.
  • Avoid making large payments upfront. Come up with a payment schedule for work completed.

When looking for remodelers near you, ask them the following questions:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • How many similar projects have you completed?
  • Can I see a portfolio of your past remodeling jobs?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • How do you handle damages that happen on the job?
  • Who's the project manager, and will you use subcontractors?
  • What qualities do you look for in subcontractors?
  • What hours do you and your crew work?
  • What permits do I need, and will you obtain them?
  • What does your warranty policy include?
  • Can you provide me a written estimate or contract with a breakdown of all costs?
  • What’s your payment schedule?
  • What do I need to provide to get started?

Steve Myers handled 4 big projects for us, starting back in 2003, and all have been excellent. In 2003, he completely gutted and redid our kitchen for us. We were very pleased with the result then, and are still pleased with it today. Although we've had to replace several of the appliances over the intervening years, everything Steve did has held up very well and we still enjoy our beautiful and well-designed kitchen. After that, he gutted and redid our den (had been old dark wood paneling) including refacing the fireplace and adding built ins, and redid our basement rec room to make it "teen friendly," again including adding nice wood built ins (plus a kitchenette area). We are still enjoying both of those re-done rooms. Most recently, Steve built us a wonderful screen porch. This project involved re-configuring our laundry room (so you don't have to walk through it) and adding on a new porch that fits beautifully with the exterior of our house and landscaping. We have very much enjoyed eating meals and spending time on the porch for 3 seasons of the year. Steve has been easy to work with, excellent to consult with as we've planned our projects, and he has done high quality work.

An excellent experience on excavation and concrete pour and finish of a foundation and slab for a carport / garage.

Jose did an amazing job installing our frameless glass shower door. I had another contractor tell me it would be too difficult and I should return it, but Jose managed it in an afternoon and it looks perfect! He is very professional and punctual too.

WOW!!! The owner is the sweetest young lady ever. I wanted to spruce up my basement, and boy let me tell you, it was not in the best condition after the boys moved out to college, and now it's redesigned and it even sparkles. She was extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful and found ways to tie in my style, my husband's budget, and my boy's memorabilia. Again the basement is such a calm space now because of this lovely designer. I could go on but for now, I'd say if you need some assistance, to give her a call.
