Design-Build streamlines the entire remodeling process, with one point of contact for everything. Initial communications, estimates, project wrap-up, and everything in between! When hiring a Design-Build contractor for your home remodeling project, you hire both your designer and your builder as one team.
When you work with a Design-Build home remodeler, homeowners only need one singular place to communicate their ideas, vision, expectations, and budget, which virtually eliminates the potential for miscommunication between the homeowner and the building team.
When choosing a contractor for your whole home remodel in the Northern Virginia or Northwest Washington D.C. area, check in with your network. Word-of-mouth and internal referrals from co-workers local to your area are the easiest way to retrieve first-hand accounts of satisfaction or lack-thereof with individual contractors or design-build firms.
You can also utilize websites like Houzz.com and Angie's List to view contractors in your area, view galleries of completed projects, and learn more about the history and values of the companies. Once you've made a decision, or narrowed it down, request a meeting with the contractor to receive more information to ask any and all questions you may have. Keep reading for our suggestions on what to ask when hiring a Design-Build home remodeling contractor during your initial meeting!
Is remodeling my home worth it?
Yes, for different reasons. The most important being how your home currently fits the needs of you and your family, and whether the space makes you happy. Does your home feel like home? If not, it may be time to invest (wisely, and with guidance from a professional team) in remodeling your home. Remodeling your home can also add value, when done correctly. A great resource for determining the ROI on a home remodel is your localized Cost Vs. Value Report. This resource gathers data from across the nation to give homeowners a better idea of what projects have the potential for adding value.
How long will it take to remodel my home?
The length of remodeling your home will vary depending on a myriad of factors. Full whole home remodels that require getting to the "bones" of the home will take much longer than whole home remodel projects that don't require knocking down walls, re-arranging floor plans, electricity, plumbing, etc. This length range can be anywhere from 3-8 months, to 6-12 months. An experienced Design-Build contractor will be able to set realistic timelines for your individual project.
How often should a home be remodeled?
Though there is no rule requiring you to remodel your home, it's common for homeowners to start wanting a refresh every 15 or 20 years. Various things come into play for this reasoning, including the changing of style preferences or growing families needing more (or maximized) space.
What questions should I ask a contractor before hiring them to remodel my bathroom?
Protecting the investment you are about to put into your home is key. Here are suggestions of questions to always ask, whether you're hiring for a bathroom, kitchen, whole home, or any other remodel project:
