Considering a Remodel Project This Winter? Know The Average Cost Before Starting

Water HeaterInspect

Welcome to 2013! Do you know  its expected to be a double digit year in remodeling?

Since the Seattle Remodeling Expo  is going on right now and through the weekend what better time to give an idea on how much those new windows or kitchen remodel would be. If a project is in your horizon this year, whether large or small, take your time and compare. Its amazing the cost difference and quality so pay yourself back a bit and do your homework. But most of all have fun!

These are average costs of typical projects and could be more or less depending on materials, labor costs or if your doing it yourself. For example, we added on our home a family room addition. The below states typical cost at about $101K.  We added 940 sq. ft on our split level home for a family room and additional down stairs bedroom. Our cost 75K but, I have a handy husband who did most all of the labor except for foundation, framing and electrical. Still a chunk of money and the time spent was enormous. Many late nights after work and weekends to complete.  So when you do factor in costs dont forget to consider your time. Oh, and the possible arguments with your spouse in Lowes (yes, I do know first hand). Most of all from me to you~~ Good Luck!
