Common Price Points of Home Expansions and Remodeling

The project’s scope and level of complexity have a lot to do with the price your contractor asks. The standard price for a home addition is $20,700 to $73,100, with the national average at about $46,700. Home improvements and repairs run from around $3,900 to $20,900, with the national average at about $12,400.

Specific areas of the home may cost more or less to renovate, depending on the level of alterations you are looking to make. For example, a kitchen remodel runs around $13,500 to $38,200, with an average price of about $25,800. Remodeling a basement is usually more affordable, with an average cost of around $21,600 and a range from $12,200 to $33,300.

In almost any case, more intricate work elevates costs. For instance, if you want to put a kitchen where your dining room is, count on paying more than if you were to refinish a basement to transform it into a standard game room.

How to Select the Right Home Improvement Contractor in Downers Grove

Not all local home improvement contractors are alike, and choosing the right one for your home renovation or addition work is key to a successful result. Once you obtain a list of prospective home remodeling pros in Downers Grove and check out ratings and reviews, make contact with companies that seem to be a good fit.

Hire a remodeler that checks all three of the boxes listed below.

Is Experienced With the Same Type of Jobs/h3>

Remodeling covers a vast umbrella of services, and not all contractors offer all service you might request. Be sure to ask for a portfolio of previous projects to ascertain if the remodeler has the expertise needed for your work.

Is Licensed and Insured

Details are important—particularly the insurance and licenses. Be sure your renovator has the appropriate certifications to finish this type of work in your state or locality. You should also ask for proof insurance coverage so you know that the company, its employees, and you're all covered should something happen during the renovation project.

Comes with Recommendations

A renovation contractor that has earned the recommendation of friends and family is someone you can usually trust. If people in your social circle can’t give a recommendation, ask potential remodeling providers if they can give you references.

Frequently asked questions

  • It’s important that you verify their license is still in good standing. Also keep in mind that certain states or provinces don’t require licensing if the job is under a certain dollar amount.
  • You can find a list of your state’s licensing requirements on the HomeAdvisor website. Before you get to work with the pro, make sure their qualifications are current and acceptable to you.
  • It is always a good idea to get a copy of the pro’s insurance certificate for future records, and in case anything happens. This is a good way to feel more secure in your home project, and to weed out potential scammers.

HomeAdvisor makes it easy to connect with pros near you. You can read reviews, get quotes and book appointments all in one place.

Depending on the type of project, you may find subtle differences in the hiring process. Here’s a look at task-specific advice.

You can use HomeAdvisor to help evaluate a contractor’s qualifications. We put pros through a screening process, and award badges to high-performing contractors. You can find these badges on a pro’s HomeAdvisor profile, and sometimes, his or her website. 

Your research doesn’t stop here. Once you’ve found a few prospective companies, make an call to ask a few questions about work history, licensure and more:

  • Have you completed a job like this before?
  • Do you have a list of references I can contact?
  • When are you able to start the job?

In most cases, the responses you get to these three questions will give you a very good idea of the right pro for your project. If you have more than one front-runner, these additional questions can help you narrow it down. 

  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • What’s your permanent business address?
  • Are you licensed to work in my area?
  • When did you earn your business license?
  • How do you handle warranty service complaints?
  • Do you have worker’s compensation, property damage and personal liability insurance?

Any good contractor will answer these questions, and most will appreciate dealing with a client that takes such an active interest in finding good service. On the other hand, if a contractor gives you a hard time with these questions, you probably want to find someone else.
