If you have work you want to be done on your home, there are two questions you will need to answer. Are you ready to invest in expert renovation and remodeling services or are you willing to risk a DIY project? Usually, the temptation for a DIY project comes from a desire to save money. However, this is very risky and will ultimately lead to more work and even greater expense unless you can honestly say “yes” to each and every one of these questions:

  • Do you have time to commit to the project?
  • Are you motivated enough to see the project to the end?
  • Do you have the skills, tools, and experience required?
  • Are you certified to do electrical, plumbing, construction work, etc.?
  • Do you know how to handle hazardous materials like lead and asbestos?
  • Are you able to secure licensing and permits and get insurance?
  • Do you have plans and the ability to draft blueprints and designs?
  • Are you confident in your ability to address unforeseen problems?

In the end, investing in skilled and professional home renovation is by far the safest and easiest choice to make. Any money you might save upfront in costs will be lost when damages occur, mistakes are made, and problems arise. When you trust Sheiner Construction, you know you are getting expert services right from the very start and are making a smart investment into your home.

Home remodeling in California can be performed pretty much year-round, depending on what specific project you have in mind. Renovation and remodeling of indoor areas are generally completed any time of the year. Larger scale projects or those involving exterior components may be somewhat weather dependent. For example, foundation or footing work should be completed when temperatures are above freezing, large-scale projects need to be done in favorable weather, and seasonal climate and weather patterns must be considered when completing a home addition. During your initial consultation with the Sheiner Construction team, we will discuss the timelines of your project and work out these specifics.

In many cases, smaller-scale projects such as bathroom remodeling and kitchen remodeling work can be done much faster than larger projects like home additions and remodeling. If you are ok with the inconvenience of workers being in your home, not having access to certain areas, and the possibility of being without power and water for part of the time, you could stay in your home. It is generally advisable to find alternative lodging arrangements to make yourself more comfortable and to ensure the work can be done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Though it sounds a bit evading and a bit disregarding, the answer really is “it depends.” The scope of kitchen and bathroom remodels are so vast and varies. Many factors can play into what has to be done before, during, and after the renovation. Naturally, adding a new tub or shower will be faster than knocking down walls and expanding the bathroom. Likewise, adding new counters and cabinets will be less time-consuming than a full kitchen overhaul. During your consultation with our team, tentative timelines will be figured out, and you will get a better idea of the start-to-finish time for your project.

All great remodeling and renovation projects start with a vision so be sure you have an idea of what you want and a few backup ideas in case something doesn’t work out. Then contact the design team here at Sheiner Construction and let us help you finalize the plans and figure out the project timeline and steps. But, generally speaking, before construction begins, you should clear out as many of your belongings as possible from the house where workers will be coming and going. The bathroom or kitchen likewise should be emptied of all appliances and possessions. Our team will offer specific steps to take during preparations and will do our utmost to protect anything left in the home while we are working.

Remodeling work and renovations completed by skilled and experienced construction professionals in San Diego offer a large return on the initial investment. Estimates vary depending on the type of work done, the age and condition of the home overall, the location and region, and other factors unique to specific homes and projects.  However, successful home improvements and renovations can greatly increase the value as well as the appeal of your home when you decide to sell it down the road. Newer touches, better features, and more comfortable spaces go a long way in making your home more desirable. This in turn makes it easier to sell for top dollar on the market.

At the risk of sounding elusive, we really must say that “it depends.” The scope of the bathroom remodeling dictates how long the project will take. For example, if you are relocating your fixtures and reconfiguring the room, the actual construction will obviously take a little bit longer. But, it is important to remember that moving fixtures will generally require building department permits, which will also add to the project time.

Your renovation project with us will start with a planning session. Our skilled design experts will meet with you and help you define the scope of the project and figure out what results you are after. We will then help you build a suitable budget. The meeting can be on-site so everyone understands exactly what will go where and what changes will be included within the scope of the project.
