Kitchen remodels are one of the most rewarding residential renovation projects for both the contractor and homeowner! On average, they bring in an average ROI (return on investment) of around 90%. Kitchen renovations are large projects with many components all working together to make a congruent and efficient space for your home. It’s because of the complexity of kitchen renovations that we at COR Improvements, recommend looking into hiring a general contractor to help.
As one of the more important rooms in a home, efficiency tends to come before beauty for bathrooms. But, the bathroom in your home can and should be a room you enjoy. If you’ve decided those checkered tiles on the floor, or the floral wallpaper is overdue for the dumpster, then maybe it’s time you start planning your bathroom remodel! Whether you want to alter the floorplan or upgrade the tub, call COR Improvements for all your bathroom remodel needs.
Here in the Milwaukee area, there are a lot of homes with unfinished and unused attic space. Although an attic remodel is not on the high end when it comes to return on investment (the National Association of Realtors estimates a 53% rate of return), it can be a smart, effective solution if you need more space, but don’t want to move. Similar to basements, attics often make great bedroom suites, home offices, media rooms, kids’ spaces, and man or woman-caves.
One great way to add livable space to you home is by finishing or remodeling your basement. What’s the difference? Finishing or refinishing refers to the process of making a completely unfinished basement more complete. For instance, you might hang drywall, cover a concrete floor, or add a drop ceiling. Basement remodeling is a larger project than simply finishing the basement.
A full house renovation requires more planning than a one-room remodel or addition. It will require a team of professionals including an architect, plumber, electrician, carpenter, etc. With the scope of this type of project, many homeowners find value in hiring a general contractor to oversee it all. Your GC should also be your expert when it comes to following codes, pulling permits, and managing inspections. If you are ready to start the process, give us a call today!
There are certainly practical reasons to remodel your garage with a renovation. If it is attached to your house, you could have a large impact on your energy bills if you address issues with airflow from windows and garage doors, as well as add insulation. And, if you have one vehicle that sits out all winter, you can protect it from the harsh elements by adding on to your garage. Beyond just adding value to your home, a remodel can really change the way you live.
