You know what’s fun? Brainstorming renovation ideas. It’s a blast. Both customer and contractor enjoy this dreaming phase, visualizing what “could be”. These pleasant conversations eventually lead to a big elephant in the room. COST.
Discussing cost is not only necessary, it should happen early in the quoting process. Delaying a cost conversation makes "sticker shock" more likely, which neither contractor nor customer enjoy.
A ballpark cost is a good place to start.
So what are reasonable ballpark costs for common renovations? Here’s a short list compiled by Remodeling Magazine. *Important* These are AVERAGE COSTS for an area of the country known as the South Atlantic region.
