When is the best time to remodel?

Most interior home remodeling can be done any time of year, as it is not affected by weather. If your concern is the exterior of your home, here are some things to consider:

  • Footing, foundation, concrete, and masonry work must be completed when there is no rain and the soil is dry. Once these are complete, framing can continue regardless of weather.
  • Roofing should be considered when rain is scarce, but once weatherproofing has been done, interior work in these areas can continue without concern for the forecast.
  • Kitchen remodels can also cause upheaval in your life. To avoid having to order takeout every day, many homeowners choose to make kitchen changes during more temperate months, allowing them to cook on an outdoor grill.

How long will a remodel take?

The length of each renovation depends on the size of the project, the scope of work, and the materials used. When you work with us, we provide you with a clear timeline of our plans and keep you updated on any setbacks or successes that change the project timeline.

Will I still have running water and power during a remodel?

Most of the time, water and gas need to be shut off during the demolition phases, as well as reconnection phases of the project. Some shutdowns only last a few minutes, while others last a few hours. You will know of any shut-offs well in advance, so you can plan your life accordingly.

Who cleans up after the work is done?

Throughout your project, there will be times when your home is messier than you would like. We do our best to clean up after ourselves every day, but dirt and dust are the worst during demolition phases. Sanding and drywall insulation also create a lot of fine dust, but we do our best to seal off the rest of your house to avoid spreading it.

At the very end of your project, our team will conduct a full cleanse to leave your home sparkling!

Can you use my blueprints?

At A-List Builders, we’re happy to begin work at any phase of a project. Many clients come to us with plans that are already complete and approved by Building and Safety.

Can you help with the design phase of the project?

If you’re struggling with various concepts of your remodel, or you have incomplete plans, we can help!

What if I want to make changes during the remodel?

While we encourage minimal changes once your project is underway — as many changes cause delays and raise costs — we will do everything in our power to ensure you’re happy with the work we’re doing.

Do I need any permits or insurance?

Most projects do need city permits. Since our company is fully licensed, bonded, and insured we will take care of the entire process, so you can enjoy peace of mind throughout your project.
