To get a home improvement cost estimate, there are a couple of ways that you can go about getting the information that you need. You can get a quote from our offices, or you can use the cost calculator (our estimator tool) to get a general idea of how much the job you have in mind will run you. In either case, there are a number of factors that go into the overall price which will be considered before a quote is given.
How contractors go about providing a cost estimate is relatively simple in theory, but there is a lot that goes into the decision-making process. When it comes to remodels, the time and complexity of the project come into focus, because the work required to remove, design, rebuild, and finish requires several layers of expertise. Labor and material costs for tile and hardwood services come into play, as does the cost for doors and windows, minor plumbing and electrical, drywall and insulation services, painting, installation, and HVAC systems.
If you are wondering how much improvements cost, here are a few averages, as examples, for services in Bloomington, Illinois, and the surrounding area:
For bathroom remodeling projects, the average cost around $9,000, with the range running from around $3,500 to $17,000 depending on what is needed.
Kitchen remodels are often somewhere in the neighborhood of $19,000 0n the high-end and $4,000 on the low-end. The price depends greatly on the size, materials, design choices, and whether the floor plan will remain the same.
For general contractors and handyman services, the prices and hourly charges depend on the qualifications and experience and ranges from $38/hr to $48/hr and as high as $68/hr where HVAC professionals charge $88/hr to $118/hr. Contracting services can be priced per hourly rates, per square feet or at a flat rate.
