What will the Renovation cost?

There is more to think about than just cost

A quality remodel builds value into your home.  Not only does it make your
home more appealing to live in, also a good portion of your remodeling cost will
be recouped if you decide to sell your home.  Remodeling magazine publishes a
study every year showing the average return on your investment for remodeling
projects.  The 2014 report shows that you can build your homes value up to 75%
of the cost of the remodel.  Take a look for yourself.

If you considering a renovation project, the first question most people ask us is,
“What will it cost?”  We’ve put together a list of average costs for a variety of
remodeling / renovation projects.  As with every rule of thumb, there are always exceptions. But
if you are considering a new living space, we hope these estimates will help you
develop a realistic budget.

Note that kitchens and bathroom additions tend to entail substantial modifications of existing
spaces. This usually skews the square foot costs.
