Question List

How much is my remodel going to cost?

This is a great question, and probably one of the questions we are asked the most. Unfortunately, it's not an easy question to answer. There are entirely too many variables and factors that can dramatically change the cost of any home-remodeling project.

Case in point… consider something as simple as a light switch. At last count, there were over 500 options at just one name brand big box retailer. The prices ranged from as little as $0.79 to as much as $100 or more. Now multiply that by the number of light switches you want replaced, and you can easily see how much a project can change based on your design choices.

Our job here at Transitions Remodeling in Farmington Hills is to educate you on a solution. Our motto: Every Budget Deserves A Great Design. So no matter how much, or how little, you have for your home-remodeling project, we are here to help.

And before we pick up a single tool you are going to know exactly what your project will cost. That price will not change unless you submit a written change order request. At Transitions Remodeling we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality, the highest value and the highest customer service.

What's the difference between your "CONTRACT PRICE" and a "FREE" Estimate.

Another great question and this one is pretty easy to answer. An estimate is, by its very definition, simply a rough "guess" as to how much something is going to cost… in this case it's a rough guess on how much it's going to cost you for a home-remodeling project in Farmington Hills or nearby areas.

Our price, which you get in writing, is not a "rough" guess. In fact we go to extraordinary lengths to make sure that our price won't change. Like sending micro-cameras into your walls so that we can see exactly what we are dealing with. While most home-remodeling contractors can't see behind walls and therefore have to "guess"… we don't.

Here at Transitions Remodeling, we pride ourselves on not guessing. Our prices are as accurate as possible. About the only time the contract price will change is if you request a "written" change order.

Simply stated, the contract price is the price you pay.

What makes a kitchen remodel more or less expensive?

In our experience, your cabinet selection is the single most expensive item in a kitchen remodel, next would be what type of countertops you want installed. Believe it or not, we have had clients who actually spent more on their countertops than on their cabinets, but by and large your cabinets are your single largest expense in a kitchen remodel.

How do I choose the right cabinets for my kitchen?

Choosing the right cabinets for your kitchen doesn't have to be hard. In fact, we have—on staff—award winning interior designers that can help you. One of the first things you need to do is to firmly establish exactly how much cabinet space you really need.

In our many years of experience, many homeowners overestimate the space requirements, and as a result, they overspend. Let our design build team sit down with you in your home and in our kitchen design showroom in Farmington Hills. We’ll help you figure out exactly what you need… that way you can get the kitchen that you want, at a price you can afford.

What should I expect?

Every home is different. Every job is different. But there are some general guidelines as to what you can expect with kitchen remodeling in Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield, and Birmingham, MI. First is the planning and design phase. This is the most critical aspect of any remodel. There is an old cliché, which we find extraordinarily appropriate when it comes to remodeling: "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." That is why we take such extraordinary steps and as much time as is needed to come up with a plan that works for you—and your budget.
