Home Remodeling is Not a Game of Chance

If Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis told you that your home remodeling project is not a game of chance, would you believe us? Of course, you would. Reputable home remodeling companies do not leave your project to chance. There are certain steps that a home remodeling company takes to ensure the success of your home remodeling or home addition projects.

The beginning of the home remodeling project starts with budget. The homeowner should have a realistic budget in mind, not some phantom, obscure idea that just because you want it, you can leave the budget to chance and somehow, even magically, your project will be exactly like your home remodel vision. Life is not like that, and neither is your home remodel project. It takes various aspects of planning, designing, and a realistic approach to what you want versus what your budget is.

If you want a successful home remodel project, then it is imperative that you are honest and up front about your budget. Many homeowners are reluctant to disclose such matters. Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis realizes there can be a variety of reasons why there may be reluctance. For one, we live in a world where distrust is prevalent. Perhaps you feel that if you disclose an honest budget that the remodeling company will use that much money instead of trying to save you dollars. For instance, say you tell the home remodeler that your budget is $11,000, but you hope to spend less. Your home remodeler gives you a detailed estimate and it is $10,999. How convenient, you think to yourself. In your mind, maybe you think that the total job cost was because you told an honest amount for your budget. You become suspicious, and decide to call other home remodeling companies for an estimate. This time, when they ask you for a budget, you decide to tell them 8,000. The estimator goes over what you want and what it costs, including labor and tells you that to stay within your budget, you will have to give up certain design ideas or go with less expensive materials and supplies. In other words, you will have to compromise what you wanted out of your home remodeling project. You think to yourself, “That doesn’t seem fair, the other company was going to give me everything I asked for and it was still under my budget.”

Your home remodel project is not a game of chance. It is important to build a relationship with your remodeler that is built on honesty and good communication. Having a trustworthy partnership from the outset of your home remodel project, including an honest evaluation of your home remodeling budget, gives your remodeling company the information it needs to create a beautiful, functional home remodel that is exactly what you want for the price you want to pay.
