Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to completely renovate a house?

Some homeowners pay as much as $25,000 to remodel a home. But you can pay more or less depending on:

  • The age of the home. Older homes tend to involve more work to update. 
  • The size of the home. Larger homes tend to cost more to renovate than smaller ones.
  • The condition of the home. Homes requiring structural changes or architectural plans will also cost more to renovate. 

Additional cost factors include building permits, as well as the costs of the required materials, paints, and flooring materials and labor. To get a better understanding of how much your home renovation will cost, discuss your project with several remodeling contractors and ask for price estimates.

Where do I start when renovating a house?

The first step is making a detailed plan for your home improvement project, which includes researching designs and appliances, and creating blueprints. Next, work out an exact budget for your home renovation, allowing extra money for unexpected expenses or emergencies.

Search for home renovation and remodeling contractors and make your decision after interviewing three to five promising candidates. Finally, make a timeline for the project, then begin packing up and preparing for the renovation to start.

Is it worth remodeling an old home?

It depends on the home’s condition and what you plan to do with it. For example, if you plan to live in the home for a long time, performing renovations could make the home more livable and enjoyable. If your intention is to resell it, it might be worth the time, money and effort. Old homes typically cost less than new ones, giving you a built-in budget to perform the renovations. The home’s unique character might even provide a significant boost in value once the renovations have brought the rest of it up to date.

However, you need to conduct research to fully answer this question. Figure out how much it will cost to remodel the old home and decide if the return on investment is enough for you.

How can I renovate my house cheaply?

There are a number of highly effective, budget-friendly renovations you can perform on your home. Here are some ideas to consider: 

  • Pressure wash your home’s exterior
  • Paint your front door
  • Replace your light fixtures
  • Get new door knobs 
  • Remove your popcorn ceiling
  • Add new wallpaper
  • Paint your kitchen cabinets 

And the list goes on. Chat with a few professionals to figure out how much your desired home renovations will cost you. If the prices exceed your budget, ask if the pros can suggest alternative upgrades that are more affordable.

What renovations are worth doing?

The most worthwhile renovations are the ones that will make your home more appealing to potential homebuyers in your market. But you should also consider renovations that will increase your own satisfaction and make your home more enjoyable for your household.

Explore remodeling ideas for your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, attic, garage — any part of your home. If you get inspired, start researching prices and come up with a budget. Then, contact a few remodeling contractors to discuss your vision and get accurate cost estimates.

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

Does a general contractor need to enter my home?

Provided the project is located inside your home, completing the job would require a general contractor to enter your home. But if your project is located outdoors, a general contractor will likely not need to enter your home. Discuss your options with general contractors in your area before hiring.

Reviews for Centennial remodeling contractors
Jacob L.
Will and his team did a great job remodeling a complete disaster of a house! We purchased a rental property that had been completely destroyed by the previous tenants. At first, our project was going to be small; however, that quickly changed. As we got started, it became clear that we would need to replace everything in the house: all new plumbing, electrical, roof, HVAC, kitchen, bathrooms, and just about everything in-between. We even decided to add a bathroom to the master bedroom, and, as everything else, Will took it in stride. Will was understanding, and was willing to accommodate us throughout the project. As our needs adjusted, so did he. Throughout the whole process, Will and the team kept me completely updated, so that I knew what was going on at all times. The team was flexible enough to allow me to hop in complete some of the work on my own to keep costs down. And when we did elect to take on some of the smaller projects, he was willing to walk us through the process and give us pointers. Additionally, when it came to billing and going over the budget, he was always on top of it and kept us informed with price changes and adjustments. Generally, Will is just an all around, great guy. Initially, I chose him because of his great personality. And in the end, I was not disappointed at all. To be fair, that does not mean that we didn't have our disagreements or issues, all projects of this magnitude do! That said, what was great about Will and his team is that they always worked to make sure everything came out great. Whenever changes needed to be made, budgets reviewed, concerns arose, they were all over it. He constantly said to me that he "would do anything for his customers" and that he'd be there for us throughout the process, and he was. Working with any contractor on large or small projects can be tedious, but Will was great and we learned a lot about the process. Tips: 1 - Ask questions!! Will is not afraid to answer them. In the long run, it's only going to help you and him. 2 - Don't be afraid to speak your mind and be upfront. If you are honest about things, the better your experience will be. Will and team will give you a straight forward answer. 3 - Remember to be respectful. It builds trust between the homeowner and the contractor. Will is an honest guy and sticks by his word and work. But the best way to build a great relationship is to remember to treat each other with respect. I know that sounds weird, but does help. 4 - It never goes exactly as planned. Its just the truth, but Will does work very hard to make sure your needs are being meet. In the end, we actually decided to move into the newly remodeled rental instead of keeping it a rental. The work was so great, and the house was so nice, that we just couldn't bear to have someone else enjoy it! Like I never turns out the way you plan! Thank you Will, Sergio, Benji and all others who worked on our house. We couldn't be happier!!
