Common Questions from a First-Time Remodeler


It’s natural to have a lot of questions when you’re tackling a big remodeling job. Some of the most common questions we hear from first-time remodelers are:

1)      How long will it take?

2)      How do I choose the right contractor?

3)      Does it pay to be my own general contractor, or should I hire someone to manage all the subs?

4)      What’s the difference between a fixed-price, cost-plus and time-and-materials contract?

Dwight and Bryan did a great job addressing question 4 in their March 22, 2014, Building Solutions column “Understand Possible Costs Before Signing a Contract.”
