Remodeling Your Home
Our beautiful state of Florida has it’s own challenges when remodeling your house. We’ve created a guide to help you navigate how best to improve your home.
Familiarize yourself with local permits and laws. Don’t think of this as just government red tape, local agencies are a trove of resources when it comes to remodeling your house. Walking through this process will ensure safety, and help you get your job done.
Think about cost vs. value. The popularization of remodeling shows has put this on public consciousness. However, you should still walk these steps. In addition to performing the work that you want done for your home [and by extension, family], considering the value of the work you’re getting done is financially sound. Should you buy a pool or remodel your kitchen? Homeowners should understand where dollars are best spent, particularly when it comes to getting a return on your investment.
Find well-reviewed local professionals. From architects, designers, and design/build contractors, look through our resources to ensure you’re working with the best professionals.
Get estimates, check references. Consulting with multiple professionals will give you a better lay of the landscape, and show you a range of prices. This will help you make the best final decision.
