Lori R. says, "My husband Got a great job in Philadelphia, so we had to find a home. But everything was so expensive. So we looked for a handyman special property. Doing that from Massachusetts was difficult, or so we thought. James of life liberty builders, we contacted he actually looked at multiple properties for us, sent feedback at no cost. Eventually we found a great home that needed allot of work. Including an addition that would be my hubby's office. Lifelibertybuilders did the remodel and addition in 2 weeks under his quoted finish date. And it was perfect. THEN because of how easy he made it we actually out of nowhere decided to try and do some fix and flips. We loved the TV shows abt flipping and allways dreamed of doing it. He made us feel like we could. Now we are 2/3 through our first investment property and we will actually rent it out! Not 1 cent over budget thus far, besides an unforseen roof repair but James actually did the repair at cost. 5 stars all day. As much as we want James all to ourselves lol, definitely hire him if you need anything done that has to do with remodeling or new construction. We saw some of his new homes when we met him, unbelievable." Read more

Your Home Remodeling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to remodel a home?

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.

Who remodels homes?

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.

What services do home remodeling contractors provide?

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.

What remodeling projects increase home value?

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.

What is the home remodeling process?

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.

Can you get a home loan that includes renovation costs?

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.

Are home remodeling costs tax deductible?

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.

How to choose a home remodeling contractor?

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.

What questions should I ask home renovation contractors before hiring?

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?

What a great experience it turned out to be. So quick to respond whenever I contacted him. I passed the project, and they started soon after. They told me it would be 5 days of work and they got the schedule right. He made some suggestions for things (my wife loved the suggestions). Very professional, the work was beautiful, honest and reliable, I simply couldn’t be happier with the result. I would definitely not hesitate to use again and would recommend to friends, family and neighbors.
