One of the most important questions you have about your next home remodel project in Seattle, WA is “how much is this going to cost me?” And it’s a fair question. But it’s a loaded one. It’s a question that requires more than a one-size-fits-all answer and out of respect for our clients and their hard-earned money, we want to walk you through the process of determining just how much money you need for your next project so that you can get the home of your dreams and ensure that you don’t break the bank.

Do you set the budget or does the project set the budget?

One of the hardest parts about setting a budget for a project turns out to be a chicken-egg situation: do you decide ahead of time how much money you can spend on a particular project and just try to fit it all in under that umbrella, or do you go out and find out what it will cost for your entire project and suck it up in the end to get it all done? The answer depends on you and your finances. At Eakman Construction, we work with clients to set realistic budgets for projects and we talk to you about the importance of priorities when it comes to your budget. If you can’t get everything you want right now, what has to happen in order to set the foundation for future projects? That’s where you start.

Creating the foundation.

Your budget might not accurately reflect the actual cost of the proposed remodeling project. Homeowners are often taken aback when they realize how much money certain things cost. A lot of the information they have is based on previous purchases, but the cost of living and products has gone up so much over the last few decades that these numbers are often dizzying. Fear not though – our expert team of contractors and remodelers can help you plan for your money in a way that makes sure your foundation is set. Investing in big ticket items like your flooring, cabinetry, moving or replacing walls, setting your basement up, roofing, and outdoor space all add tremendous value to your bottom line and increase the value of your home many times over. Decorating and accents can come later and don’t need to eat into your budget right now.

Timeline may play a factor.

If you contact a home remodeling company in Seattle, WA and want your project done ASAP, that’s going to cost you. If you are not in a rush to get the project under way, you can save money just in labour and delivery costs. Plus, any contractor that can deliver a project of any scale in a short period of time is worth investigating a little more: high-quality remodeling companies are booked to the nines and needs some lead time to take on your project, let alone finish it in a tight timeline.
