Deciding on a Custom Remodeling Project

When you first think about doing a home remodeling project, it is easy to get sidetracked. The idea might start out as a kitchen remodel because there are too many cooks in the kitchen and not enough room. Once the plans begin to blossom, what you want to do may change dramatically. It may no longer be a matter of opening up the kitchen, but turning it and the dining area into a great room. Keep in mind that it is usually more cost effective to have multiple projects done at the same time, rather than doing one now, one in 6 months and another next year.

For some Northern Virginia homeowners, it becomes challenging to know where to draw the line. At Foster Remodeling, we can help you decide what to include in your remodeling project. First, you will need to make a few basic decisions.

What Are You Planning to Spend?
Determine your budget. Do what you can afford, then make a plan and stick to it. One of the main reasons people struggle with remodeling projects is because they change their minds constantly once they begin. As a design-build contractor, we sit down with you at the very beginning and look at some ideas in a virtual planner. This way, there will be no surprises.

What Do You Dream About?
Decide the purpose of your custom remodeling project. The focus may be to make your home more comfortable. Maybe you promised yourself when you bought it that, when you had the chance, you would add a garage or remodel that hideous basement. Perhaps that time has come. On the other hand, maybe your bathroom floor is creaking and cracking and you want to replace it before the damage becomes too great.

What Makes Sense?
Families grow. After you have been in your home for a few years, you may decide it needs some improvements to better fit your needs. You may need another bathroom or bedroom. Maybe the kitchen can be renovated to give you more space and a more modern look.

Once you have an idea of what you want, what you need and what you can afford, contact our office. We can show you some options and help you put together a discount remodeling project that will meet your budget and help you narrow down exactly what you want.
