Remodeling Home – Santa Clara – Budgeting Realistically
The prior article in this series addressed the importance of the budget as regards the remodeling of your home.
This article addresses budgeting realistically.
A truth of remodeling is your project will almost always cost more than the minimum necessary.
This is primarily because:
- You never know what you will find when you start opening walls.
- You will make design changes as you go.
Realistic budgeting simply means providing an allowance in your budget for these.
In general, those two items inflate the cost of remodeling projects from between 20% to 40% (together, not individually).
So if you figure it should cost $10K for the bathroom you want, adding the fudge factor above brings the total more realistic budget to $14K on the high end.
If you are remodeling your home in or around Santa Clara, CA, we would love an opportunity to be of service to you.
