The better the planning, the better the project.

3. Ordering & Material Management: 

Avoid unecessary delays by ordering all materials in advance, inspecting them and storing them safely until needed.

4. Quality Construction: 

Work with experienced trade partners who provide fixed price contracts and hold the correct licenses and insurance.

5. Project Management: 

Supervise the jobsite daily, provide a detailed project schedule, have a clear process for change orders, punchlists and project communication.

6. Follow Up and Warranty: 

Follow up after 6 months to ensure things are working as expected. Provide a 5 year warranty that covers all work done and includes annual follow up. 

 Costs Vs Value Report

Each year Remodeling magazine publishes the Cost vs Value Report (read the 2023 report here). It compares a dozen or so types of remodeling projects and impact they have on resale value.

To be honest, the report is not very accurate. It is based on permitted costs, not total costs. Total cost can be 10’s of thousands of dollars more than permitted costs as things like cabinet installation, flooring etc… do not require permits so they are under reported in their estimates.

Still it can be useful in relative terms to show what renovations return the most on your investment. The bottom line though is very few project pay back more than they cost.

ROI on Kitchens and Baths

Kitchens and bathrooms pay back the most… usually between 55% and 75% . 

Unless your house is a state of disrepair or lacks features that all other homes in your neighborhood have, remodeling for ROI does not make a lot of sense unless you stick to the cheapest possible options like a house flipper might do.

INstead, Remodel to Make Life Better

While ROI is a consideration, the best reason to remodel is to improve the lives of the people in the home. That kind of inverstment always pays back a lot more. smile
