Demystifying the Costs of Home Remodeling: Insights from Precision Homecrafters

Embarking on a home remodeling project often creates excitement and apprehension, particularly about the potential costs. Understanding these costs upfront is crucial in making informed decisions and setting realistic expectations. This blog offers a transparent pricing guide that sheds light on this often-daunting aspect of home improvement.

The Complexity and Costs of Remodeling

When it comes to remodeling, the cost of a project is influenced by several factors, including the age of the home, the size of the work area, whether the shape or number of rooms is changing, the amount of change to electrical, plumbing and HVAC elements, and the level of fixtures and finishes selected. The price ranges below include comprehensive design/build services covering everything from initial design through final clean-up. The prices cover removing everything in the room back to subfloor and drywall, making typical, code-required updates, fixing common issues found in homes built in the past 30 years, and installing new fixtures and finishes of the quality expected in new homes in the upper half of property values.

Here’s a breakdown of some common remodeling projects and their associated costs:

Hall Bathroom Renovation Pricing

Ranging from $35,000 to $43,000 for a 3 to 4-piece bath (tub, toilet, and 1 or 2 sinks) and installing new materials with plumbing fixtures in approximately the same locations.

Master Bathroom Renovation Pricing
For 4-piece master baths (tub/shower or stand-alone shower plus toilet and 2 sinks), most projects fall between $45,000 and $55,000. Larger, 5-piece master baths (separate shower and tub, toilet, and 2 sinks)  cost from $80,000 to upwards of $95,000 and often include the relocation of 1 or 2 plumbing fixtures.

Kitchen Renovation Pricing
For a mid-size kitchen where the main plumbing fixtures and appliances remain in approximately the same locations, projects cost between $75,000 and $95,000. Larger kitchens, expanding into adjacent spaces, or major relocations of appliances and fixtures can push the price to $110,000 – $175,000. These ranges do not include the cost of new appliances.

Outdoor Living Space Renovation Pricing

New or replacement covered decks or screen porches with roofs tied into the existing home using better-than-builder-grade materials and finishes range from $85,000 to $135,000+.

Basement/Attic Remodeling Pricing

Projects where these unfinished spaces become areas for entertaining (often with some plumbing, appliance, and cabinetry elements) typically cost $165 to $210 per square foot.

Home Addition Pricing

A single-level, main-floor addition like a master suite can cost between $150,000 and $225,000. Larger main floor or multi-story additions range from $275,000 to $425,000+.

We feature Another Story second-story additions that allow you to remain in your home during construction. They typically cost $350,000 to $550,000+, including modifications to the main floor needed for the stairway.
