Remodeling your home can be a daunting undertaking if you are not prepared or do not understand what it takes to perform the remodel correctly.
The good news is you already understand this to some extent. How do I know this? Most likely you typed “I’m ready to remodel my home, where do I start?” into a search engine. Which then brought you directly here to this blog post on Benhardt Construction’s website. My question to you is this, are you sure you are ready to remodel your home or are you just out and about looking for ideas? Does the space you are thinking to remodel require a full overhaul, alteration to layout or additional space to make what you dream a reality? Are you willing and able to fully disclose your true budget for the project as well as honestly discuss the financial vehicles that you may utilize to pay for the remodeling project? The question I ask next is the one that I rely on almost one hundred percent to weigh out whether you are truly ready to remodel your home with Benhardt Construction. That question is do you value your home as one of, if not the single greatest, investment that you and your family own?
Remodeling Your Home is About Maintaining and Adding Value to Your Most Important Investment – Period
If you can answer yes to that question then you are definitely in the right space. You see, home remodeling to me is not a paint by numbers endeavor that requires the use of a dart board and slick double talk. Home remodeling is what Benhardt Construction does and does well. The reason why I can say that is I do exactly what it takes in the design phase to create a new space for your home that increases the value of your home. Your home is worth more than before when your remodel project is completed with Benhardt Construction. Our designs maximizes your budget! We understand what works in the different spaces around your home. If you are looking to remodel a kitchen in a $750,000 home it’s going to be safe to say that it will cost more than the kitchens we design for the $275,000 home. Most of the time is the simple reason of size! More cabinets, flooring, counters, lighting and appliances will go into a $750,000 kitchen than a $275,000 kitchen. Sure that’s pretty simple to understand and you’re thinking what is he telling me this for. The reason is that I want you to understand that I won’t design a kitchen, bathroom, basement that does not fit your home and your budget.
Setting a Realistic Budget is So Very Important
I’ve met with homeowners in the past that just did not have a realistic budget to remodel their home. We met and discussed their kitchen, bathroom and basement and they had minimal dollars (or that’s all they wanted to disclose). I ask them “You said you were Ready to Remodel My Home”. They then reply yes which then I simply thank them for their consideration but regretfully say that Benhardt Construction is not a good fit for them right now. You may be thinking that I am nuts right about now turning down work. My entire mission, thought process, inner core – whatever you call it is …
You Remodel Right the First Time
I have entered many homes that have areas “recently remodeled” and a majority of the time I am appalled at what I see. That’s usually about the time I ask them how come they didn’t call back the contractor that remodeled their kitchen, bathroom or basement for this project. The reasons I hear are so varied but mostly they are not around anymore or they got called back to their regular job. Wait? What? I completely understand being frugal with one’s money, due diligence and all that but you trusted your biggest asset to someone who was laid off? Don’t tell me you look for Dr. Issac Yankem on Craigs List when you have a tooth ache. Or that you go to McDonald’s expecting a seven course fine dining experience…
Remodel Your Home With a Company That Has Your Best Interest In Mind – Always
Please understand that Benhardt Construction is the home remodeling business because we always want what is best for the customer. When I mentioned earlier that I have passed on work when homeowners had unrealistic budgets it is because I am not here to apply band-aides or top coats to remodeling projects. Benhardt Construction’s position in the St. Louis County Remodeling Market and St. Charles County Remodeling Market is – we are here to provide a fantastic remodeling experience that increases value to homes, lasts for decades and allows for the full enjoyment of both family and friends!
Benhardt Construction Should be Your Next Remodeling Contractor
A design that fits your kitchen, bathroom or basement budget. A cost proposal that fully discloses the true costs before construction starts. Confidence that your investment is protected. Peace of mind warranty that covers your project for years after completion. Craftsmanship and Materials that allows you to enjoy for decades. A new space that you deserve.
It Costs You Nothing for Benhardt Construction to Meet You at Your Home for Your Kitchen, Bathroom or Basement Project.
Benhardt Construction will meet with you at your home to discuss your space. Your wants, needs and desires. Your budget. If everything falls into place I will measure your space in order to produce for you an estimate of the project. Of which I will return to meet with you five to seven business days later. When we meet the second time we will decide then if this a project that you and Benhardt Construction can move forward with. If we are able to move forward a design agreement will be presented for your review and a small retainer will be requested. From that point we will most likely meet at ProSource of St. Louis in the near future. I will have already met on your behalf at least once before you are scheduled to layout the space and obtain some initial ideas of selections from what I already know about you. We then go through the process of you choosing your selections for flooring, cabinet colors, counters, lighting, backsplash, fixtures and accessories. Once you have made your final decisions I can then provide you with a detailed scope of work and cost proposal for the design we have worked on. If you are in agreement we’ll sign off on selections, sign a contract, collect a deposit and get you onto Benhardt Construction’s Remodeling Schedule!
