    Remodel a Bathroom Highly recommend! I used a different remodeler for my upstairs bathroom but when I did my bath and partial kitchen remodel on the main floor I wanted a little more- Remodeling Star was great at listening, helping me make decisions, on time, professional and top quality - I worked at home through all of it. I am so glad used them- beautiful work!

    Remodel a Bathroom Brad and his team, said what they would do, and did what they said. Great workmanship, great team led by Migel. They always kept us apprised of scheduling and updates. We recommend them for any bathroom remodeling requirements.

HOME REMODELING COSTS

the dollars and cents

We know what a giant undertaking any remodeling project can be. That’s why we won’t prescribe “quick-fixes” or use shoddy building materials. Getting it right takes time. It’s just that simple. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Pricing can vary greatly on a project-by-project basis, largely depending on your budget. During our initial discussion, we’ll tell you what ideas will work and what won’t.

Look at the figures below to gain a better feel of what some of our lower and higher-end projects cost. Remember, these are merely estimates based on past work we’ve completed. Every project is unique, and so are their relative costs.

Welcome to Remodeling star Design Build, Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor area’s high-quality home design and renovations company. We have a personal designer on staff to hold your hand through the entire remodeling process and help you select cabinets, tile, paint colors, etc. so that your home project has those special touches that make it look like it should be featured in a magazine.

You’re ready to move forward with your possible home project and you’ve started doing some exploration and trying to figure out where to begin and who to call. You may be feeling excited, overwhelmed, or even nervous about the process ahead, don’t worry, that’s completely normal and our steps below will help you define what you need and how to get it done.

Our guide helps you through the process from start to finish.  Below we will explain our process and what you can expect from our team.

If you’re remodeling within the existing structure of your home, we will utilize our in-house CAD software. For new additions, we will meet with an architect to determine the cost for drafting plans. Already picked an architect. No problem. Contact us when your drawings are permit ready, so we can meet to review them to make sure we set a realistic budget.

Step one       

Explore Ideas & Formulate Must Haves       Start your journey by exploring online for your likes, dislikes, and everything in between. Look through our project portfolio for ideas. 

Get Specific About Your Project         What type of project are you looking to start?  Is it a kitchen only or is it the kitchen and hardwood floors throughout the first floor?  Getting specific about how you plan to use the space before the next step will help you get genuine with a budget.

Formulating a Budget, The must haves list you just created to understand what a realistic budget would be.  There are great tools online to help with getting a general idea or remodeling costs.  Check out the Cost vs Value Report and our Pricing Guides

 

 

 

Good communication is an important way to create a successful project and happy customers, so from the first phone call we will be asking lots of questions to learn how we can serve you best. 

Do you have a deadline of when you are looking to complete your project? Whether it is a graduation party, or an expected newborn, let us know if you have a date in mind so we can go over how long your project design, permits and build-out may take.

Setting the right budget is an important part of any project. we can help come up with ideas that will provide the best value for your investment.  Check out our pricing guides for guidance in setting a realistic budget.

Step two          Initial Walk-through

Once at your home, we will spend 30-60 minutes getting to know each other better.  We will hear what you have in mind, give some advice, and talk through your goals, desires, and any fears you may have regarding the project. We won’t get into the small details, but we will talk about your vision on a higher level. We will discuss the feasibility of your ideal budget range.  While we won’t know the exact cost of your project at this point, by starting this discussion and talking about some practical numbers will go a long way in helping our team direct you in the best way forward.  Inevitably you will have lots of questions for us and we will leave time to answer those. We will also talk over our process and the next steps. There are 3 possible outcomes from this meeting:

  • OUTCOME 1:  We create a basic layout, and a 3D drawing and approximate costs and options. We provide these details by executing an initial design Fee, which is typically 3%-8% of the projected cost of the project.
  • OUTCOME 2:  We move to a construction Agreement, and a retainer fee is typically 10% of the preliminary estimate. we will also inspect, measure, photograph and document the existing space.  (we will discuss options that fit each individual project). During this step, we will review material selections appropriate for you project, review a preliminary scope of work and provide a refined estimated budget.  For some projects, we will create a Good-Better-Best estimate so you can get an idea of how your selection choices can affect the final price.
    1. We will talk about design ideas that could affect the price.
    2. We will review of the project management scheduling and communication system we use.
  • OUTCOME 3:  We agree that we are not the right fit for your project.
