When Is The Best Time To Start A Home Remodeling Project?
The best time to start your home renovation depends on many factors unique to your lifestyle and schedule. All in all, the best timing is whatever works best for you. You might prefer to schedule your renovation project for when the project would be least disruptive to your lifestyle and daily schedule. Interior projects, such as a kitchen or bathroom remodel, can be done year-round as they are not dependent on the weather. Projects performed on the exterior of your home, such as the addition of an outdoor kitchen, may also be performed any time during the year but may be preferable in fall, winter, or spring to best avoid Florida’s heavy summertime rains. During your initial consultation, we’ll be happy to answer any questions and consider the timeline of your project before moving forward.
How Do I Start The Remodeling Process?
Whether it’s a full-scale kitchen remodel or a simple bathroom revamp, the first step to remodeling any part of your home is research. Take a look around your property, then identify and note any functional problems and design issues you want to address and change. What would you like your new home to look like?

How Much Should I Budget For Home Remodeling?
The budget for your home remodel largely depends on the type and scope of the project, cost of materials, among additional factors. Each project is unique according to the existing structure, the size of the project, and the wants and needs of each client. One of the smartest ways to create a home renovation budget is to lay out the renovation projects you want to complete and then price them with the help of a professional design-build contractor. Once you meet with a contractor, get a bid for each project and rank them according to priority. After, you can start a detailed budget starting with the project you would like to complete first. Our contractors are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the costs of your project during your consultation.
