Thinking About Home Remodeling?  Start Here

Sooner or later, you may join the millions of people who remodel their homes each year. Perhaps it’s at that moment when you realize that avocado green and harvest gold are no longer the “in” colors for today’s trendy kitchens. Or maybe you have an epiphany one day as you stand in line to use your own bathroom. Whatever the reason, the thought crosses your mind: Maybe it’s time to start a home remodel. The reasons for home remodeling are as varied as the projects we undertake at Vermillion Construction.

Some of these include:

  • Adding more space, like a garage or storage shed
  • Upgrading cabinets, counters and fixtures
  • Creating a floor plan that’s customized for your lifestyle
  • Improving energy efficiency with new windows and doors 
  • Increasing the resale value of your home
  • Finishing the basement and making it a comfortable recreation area, office or spare bedroom

Where to Begin

The first step is to develop an idea of what you want to do with your home remodel. Write a prioritized list of your needs and wants. Why prioritize? Well (see next section) most of us have to live with a budget. You may not be able to afford all the upgrade you want, at least perhaps initially. By creating a prioritized list, you can eliminate upgrades based on priority and achieve your budget goals.

There are many sources to find design ideas for your home remodeling project. Look at magazines and websites and collect pictures of homes or remodeling projects you like. There are many TV shows that present the latest home remodeling trends. The more clearly you can envision the project and describe it on paper, the better prepared you’ll be in making your decision. 

Think about traffic patterns, furniture size and placement, colors, lighting and how you expect to use the remodeled space. You may want to improve home efficiency for green home remodeling. These projects include replacing windows and doors, upgrading heating and cooling systems, adding insulation, and other remodeling to make the home more energy-efficient, easier to maintain, and comfortable. Vermillion Construction has completed multiple remodeling projects, and we can help you with ideas as well. Our staff has great ideas and we are on top of the latest remodeling trends.

Set a Budget

Figure out how much money you want to spend on the home remodeling job, furnishings or any other cost you might incur. Remember, Vermillion Construction offers financing options and easy payment terms. We will work with you to achieve maximum value for your budget. 

Can you Do It Yourself?

Once you have created your list of priorities and budget, you’ll need to decide how to accomplish that vision. For the handyman or woman, a do-it-yourself project can be both rewarding and cost-effective. However, more than 30% of all jobs home remodelers perform come from failed DIY projects. We suggest at least talking to a professional. We can save you precious time and headaches. 

Hiring a professional remodeler is the best way to ensure your project’s success. Professional remodelers like Vermillion Construction are dedicated to maintaining the highest integrity and standards in the industry.

Tips for Choosing a Remodeling Contractor

Selecting a qualified remodeling contractor is crucial to the success of any project. Here are some key factors to consider:

  • Experience: Look for contractors with a proven track record of successful projects. Check their portfolio, read reviews, and ask for references from previous clients.
  • Certifications/Licenses: Make sure the contractor holds relevant certifications and licenses in your state. This ensures they have the necessary skills and knowledge to complete the project.
  • Communication: Effective communication is essential for a smooth remodeling process. Look for contractors who are responsive, transparent, and willing to listen to your ideas and concerns.
  • Budgeting/Estimates: A good contractor should be able to provide a detailed estimate and stick to the agreed-upon budget. Be wary of contractors who give vague or unrealistic estimates.
  • Contract/Agreement: It’s essential to have a written contract outlining the scope of the project, including timelines, costs, and any warranties or guarantees.
