Countdown to Remodeling

Before you talk with us or another remodeling company, consider sharing a bottle of wine  and talking with each other about what you want to do.

Here's the short list of the top five things to wrap your heads around while you are figuring out if your projects are a "yes", "no" or a "maybe".

5. Priorities:

Think about what you really want to do

Determine and write down your top priorities. What would you like to accomplish during the remodel? What do you really need and what you wish you could do? Just as important - what are you sure that you don 't want to do? Write down any questions or concerns that you might have about your home and possible project so that you can discuss them with your contractor.

#4. Time Frame:

Think through when you would like to do the project.

Do you have any family events planned at your home that you need to work around? When would you like the work to be completed? Is there a time of year that would be most convenient to do the project?

#3. The “Look” – Design Ideas

If there 's a particular look you love, it 's helpful, but not essential, for you to assemble a folder of magazine clippings or photos to share with the designer.  Or share your Pinterest boards or houzz collections.

#2. Budget:

Determine roughly what you would like to invest in your home.

Your contractor will work with you to refine your budget range as you identify together the scope of work that you decide to do.

#1. Money:

Not necessarily the same as your budget 

Figure out where the money for your project will be coming from. Home improvements can be paid for by cash, home improvement loan, home equity line of credit, re-finance or second mortgage. Or you could win the lottery.

Now that you know what you want to do and when you want to get started, it 's time to call Clark Construction for an appointment!
