Design-Build streamlines the remodel process. A Design-Build contractor handles all steps of the process, from initial communication and estimates to project wrap-up and everything in between. When hiring a Design-Build contractor for your remodel project, you're hiring both your designer and your builder in one.
That means one team for homeowners to communicate their ideas, vision, needs, budget, and expectations, lessening or eliminating all together the potential for miscommunications between homeowner, designer, and builder.
When choosing a contractor for your kitchen remodel in the Northern Virginia or Washington D.C. area, a great place to start is word of mouth. Ask coworkers local to your area if they've recently completed a remodeling project, and if they were pleased with their contractor of choice, then ask them for referrals. You can also visit websites like Houzz.com and Angie's List to view contractors in your area, their respective project galleries, and learn more about the companies as a whole. Once you've made a decision, or narrowed it down, request a meeting with the contractor to ask any questions you may have. Read below for some suggestions on what to ask when hiring a Design-Build contractor during your meeting.
Is remodeling a kitchen worth it?
Yes! Not only will remodeling your kitchen create a space within your home that you and your family will enjoy, but remodeling your kitchen has a significant return on investment when calculated into your resale value once the project is complete.
How long does a kitchen renovation take?
The length of every remodeling project will vary depending on size, budget, and homeowner's needs, but you should expect anywhere from 3–5 months, perhaps longer if the space is large and/or you plan on rearranging your floor plan or utilities such as plumbing and electricity.
In what order do you remodel a kitchen?
There is no lineal order in which you must remodel your kitchen, but it is commonplace to first decide what you want from your remodel; a general outline of what you'd like to see upon completion. Then, it's time to hire a contractor and clear your space of valuables to ensure they stay safe. Your contractor will take it from there!
How often should a kitchen be remodeled?
As kitchens are one of the most high-trafficked areas in any home, they may require a little sprucing up sooner than other rooms. While the decision to remodel is solely based on the homeowner, it's typical to remodel your kitchen every 10 to 15 years. This is when most people start to notice wear and tear from everyday life, along with following the natural cycle of design trends. What you thought was in style a decade ago you may feel different about today!
What questions should I ask a contractor before hiring them to remodel my kitchen?
Protecting yourself and the investment you are making into your home is the most important part of any project. Here are some questions to ask regardless of which room of your house you are hiring a contractor to remodel:
