Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Cost

Understanding Remodeling Budgeting

 

We at Kresge Contracting would like to help homeowners become informed of realistic investment levels for their desired kitchen and bath remodel.   As professionals, we have seen consumers struggle consistently over the years to understand budgets and time lines for their home remodeling projects.   Our website is dedicated to building homeowner confidence in these areas. 

 

In today’s culture, establishing an idea of realistic budgets and project progress can be challenging due to the explosive popularity of home improvement shows.  These shows distort reality as they give the impression that project pricing can be determined by a quick visual review.  Project pricing is often undervalued due to advertising discounts and sponsorships.  With editing, the most complex of projects are completed in the span of a one hour show.  Adding to the distortion are the practices of some home improvement businesses that give verbal “estimates” without actually pricing the job or determining selections.  Such practices lead to pricing overruns and poor project satisfaction. 

 

It All Starts with a Design

 

Prior to any project, the best approach by reputable firms is to establish a design for the space and from that design, build a detailed set of specifications where all project requirements are considered and included as best possible.  Once the design is agreed upon and the pricing and selections are complete, the project can be executed to the client’s satisfaction.  Our hope is Kresge Contracting will earn the privilege of being the preferred company to make your rooms…uniquely you!

 

Pro Tip: In the effort to understand costs, one great source of consumer information on typical remodeling projects is the Annual Cost vs Value Report ( http://www.remodeling.hw.net/cost-vs-value/2017/ ).   This report is published annually by Remodeling Magazine and reveals the average cost for typical home remodeling projects and the resale value they bring.  Projects are reflected from across the country, regions of the country, and popular cities in states.    Reviewing this data can help a homeowner begin to form ideas on project price points and their return on their investment.

 

Establishing Budgeting Goals

 

To further assist homeowners in determining budget goals for their project, we at Kresge Contracting have reviewed and published below our “typical” kitchen and master bathroom project scope and price.  We offer caution to be mindful that no project is truly “typical”.  We understand your project is more than just a room, it’s uniquely you.  As such, pricing can vary widely based upon finish selections, sizes of room, extent of wall changes, mechanicals involved and many other variables.   Therefore, this information is provided to help build more basic, realistic expectations as that home project is investigated.   At Kresge Contracting, our design team will work to build an actual quote to reflect the real price of your project.

 

If after reviewing this information, you feel ready to pursue your project and we have earned your confidence, please go to our Project Inquiry page to discuss how we can help you make your room uniquely you!
