One of the biggest questions for homeowners wanting to make a change is whether or not it makes sense to remodel their current space or build a new home.  When it comes to custom home building, the answer isn’t as straightforward as a price per square foot.  Items such as materials and finishes can dramatically impact the price.  To allow yourself to make and educated decision, it’s wise to schedule an estimate with a contractor to understand your investment for remodeling your current space.kitchen

At Lindus Construction, an initial consultation for a custom home renovation starts with us getting a better understanding of what your vision is.  Websites like Houzz and Pinterest allow homeowners to easily compile images of finishes, colors, and materials they’re interested in incorporating into their renovation.  Once we have a clearer understanding of the scope of work, we can bring in the right experts from our team to ensure the project is properly executed.  From there, timelines and budgets can be established.

When screening a contractor, it’s important to ask them the correct questions to both them and their references.  It’s wise to investigate how long a contractor has been in business, if they’ve ever done work under a different name, and the types of written warranties they offer.  It’s smart to look at past projects in person and review their ratings with the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.
