One of the most important aspects to remodeling is knowing—and controlling—your budget. There are so many variables that go into determining the cost of a project. Here are a few things that will affect the cost of remodeling:

Size and scope of your project.
Project cost will vary depending on your location, the size of the room, and what features or options you choose. However, square footage alone is not the indicator of cost; kitchens and bathrooms may be smaller but require appliances, plumbing and electrical features.

Structural changes.
Changing the structure of your home typically will cost more because it requires additional design and engineering work.

Age of the infrastructure.
The age and condition of your home must be considered. Structural issues more than likely will have a great impact on cost.

Product selections.
Your choice in products will determine the cost of the project. There are many different levels of product quality as well as price ranges. Talk to your contractor about various options to meet your overall goal.

Craftsmanship and quality.
Like other areas of life, you get what you pay for—a high-quality craftsman and custom workmanship will cost more.

Designs are “FREE” when you choose Prime to complete your project. Our designs are on sale for purchase if you were interested in just designs.

A general rule of thumb is that a permit will be required if structural alterations are required or if the general living area of the home is changed. This is true for bathroom design, a kitchen makeover, or other remodeling services. Keep in mind, building codes and ordinances vary in different cities and townships.

Yes. If needed, it is our responsibility as your design-build contractor to handle any necessary permits. We have the advantage of working with the various permitting expediters throughout Pennsylvania and understand how to effectively navigate the process.

You will have easy access to your project manager and can expect ongoing communication throughout the house renovation process. When completed, we do a final project walkthrough to ensure every detail of your project is handled to your complete satisfaction.

Each home remodel is unique, so this question isn’t as cut and dry as one might think. The duration of your project depends on multiple aspects, including the size of the renovation project, scope of work, and materials/finishes used. At Prime, we prepare a construction schedule for each remodeling project based on our full understanding of the scope. We also work together with the homeowner to ensure it can be completed within the estimated time frame.

If you are contemplating a whole house remodel, then yes, you will probably need to find other living arrangements during the construction period. Our design-build remodeling process is structured to minimize turnaround time, from tear down to completed project, so that you are not inconvenienced any longer than necessary. In just about every other type of home remodeling project, you should be able to remain in your house.

Depending on the scope of your home remodeling project, there will likely be some brief interruption to utilities. During the demolition phase, and when we bring in the rough trades (electrical, plumbing, HVAC), electrical, water and gas may need to be shut off anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. If we are connecting new gas pipes to your existing pipes, we will need to unhook your gas appliances and test the whole system for leaks. This could take a whole day. Moving an electrical panel or upgrading an electrical panel will likely also take a whole day. In any case, we will give you advance warning so that you can plan accordingly.

Construction is inherently noisy; there will be noise at varying levels throughout the home renovation process. We will give you advance notice during the really noisy phases, particularly, concrete chopping, tile cutting, floor sanding, etc. so that you can plan your days accordingly.

The Dust and dirt will be the worst in the demolition phase. Once we’ve got things stripped down to the frame, things will be fairly clean. Drywall installation and sanding will create a lot of very fine dust for a few days. We do our very best to seal off the rest of the house, but a little dust will always get through. It’s a good idea to throw plastic sheets over sensitive items like electronics or fine furniture during this phase.

We have a detailed schedule on our project management system that keeps you and us informed of daily activity, and also alerts you to approaching deadlines for selections and pending decisions. Following this schedule and meeting these deadlines assures that the workflow will continue uninterrupted. Our production team works with you to clarify your options, and answer any questions.
