How Can I Save Money on a Remodeling Project?

When you decide to undertake a remodeling job for your kitchen or one of your bathrooms, you will probably expect that the project will cost a great deal of money. Remodeling a room in your home is generally a good investment of resources, but you should also look for places where you can save money without sacrificing quality.

We have a long history of performing comprehensive remodeling for homes in the Denver Metro Area, and we have assisted numerous clients with finding ways to lower costs while still getting the best work possible. Here is some of our advice on how you can save money for your remodeling. If you have more questions, feel free to contact our Westminster, CO remodelers and they will be glad to assist you.

Some ways to save money when it comes to remodeling

  • Hire a full-service contractor: An unfortunate reality of many remodeling jobs is that time and money goes to waste because of poor coordination between the different contractors who handle design, plumbing, electrical systems, etc. If possible, you should go to a contractor who handles all stages of the remodel. This will make the work go smoother and faster?and consequently cost less.
  • Aim for long-term savings: When it comes to saving money through remodeling, you should look toward the future rather than settling for what seems like an immediate way to cut costs in the present. For example, you might save money during the remodeling with cheaper cabinet and countertop material but if this means repainting or even replacing within only a few years, it is not worth it. Your remodeling professionals can help you identify places where paying a bit more for quality material means bigger savings down the road.
  • Avoid moving large plumbing fixtures: If a full repiping job is necessary for the remodel because you need to eliminate older, damaged pipes, then you should definitely include it because of the long-term benefits. However, if you already have excellent plumbing, then it is less expensive to move around major plumbing appliances such as the sink and the toilet. A much more economic option is to have the fixtures replaced (a new sink can add enormous value to a remodeling job) instead of going through the extensive re-plumbing necessary to move the fixtures. The remodeler will help you with the design that will allow you to receive the most from new fixtures without necessitating major plumbing overhauls.

Work closely with your remodeling contractors: they are there to see that you have the kitchen or bathroom you want at the price you want.
