Updated: Mar 2
We aim to answer all of your basic questions about renovating and remodeling from the contractor's perspective. Home remodeling projects not only add value to my house, but they also help you stay on top of the latest trends in interior design.
There are many reliable national statistics showing accurate Return On Investment for specific projects. For example, according to Remodeling 2018 Cost v.s. Value Report Regional Frisco data shows that if you spend $20,161 on a midrange bathroom remodel the resale value is $16,154. That means that the cost recouped is 80.1%. Compared to 70.1% in 2018 National averages for a midrange bathroom remodel. Or if the job cost on a midrange siding replacement project is $15,577 the resale value is $15,344. The cost Recouped equals 98.5% (Static data belongs to © Hanley Wood Media Inc. Complete data can be downloaded free at www.costvsvalue.com)
How long will it take to remodel?
There is a sequence of events for each installation, for example, you can’t install a freestanding vanity on a bath floor before it is tiled and grouted and after the vanity is installed only then you may install the counter-top, sink, and backsplash. Many people watch TV remodeling shows that often display inaccurate project duration and project costs. Each project is unique because there are many factors that affect the project duration and final costs. Some of the factors are prep-work, square footage, permit processing, availability of the contractor for a specific project. Also, when remodeling older homes, it is not uncommon to encounter old pipes or electrical wiring that needs to be replaced. We can give you an idea of how long certain remodeling projects take to complete. For example, most full hall bath remodels that we work on in Aubrey and Frisco are 1-2 weeks. Full kitchen remodels are usually 4-5 weeks with a scope of work that includes demolition, prep-work, sheetrock and wall finish, appliance installation, electrical fixtures and switches, cabinets, countertops, tile backsplash, plumbing fixtures, flooring installation
Knowing your exact project duration is very important when planning for your remodeling project.

High-Pressure Sales Tactics
You should never be pressured to make a decision especially prematurely. Some contractors use “high-pressure sales tactics” when they present their bid for your remodeling project. If the contractor is pressuring you into making a decision; most likely he is more interested in the sale rather than meeting your goals for the project. If you experience these kinds of tactics; our recommendation is to look for another contractor. Unreasonable Project Allowances. Be aware of contractors with unreasonable material allowances. For example, if your bathroom remodel requires a freestanding tub then the estimate should include at least a starting price point for a freestanding tub which is about $700 while most will be around $1000-$1500. Alcove tubs cost as low as $175 in Home Depot. Cutting hundreds of dollars on material allowance will make the initial estimate price more attractive but the final project will cost you more because you most likely are not going to choose the cheapest material selection but should rather aim to be mid-range or better for your project. At SS Construction & Remodeling we spend a considerable length of time listening to homeowners needs and tailor the project cost to include the exact material selection. By doing this we offer the homeowner an accurate project for your final cost so you can make precise budget decisions.
