Remodel FAQs

We know the importance of choosing a contractor for your remodel. Here is our list of remodel FAQs.

Do you provide Free Consultations?

Absolutely.

What type of projects do you do?

Our scope of work includes everything from Design Build New Home Construction, whole house renovations, kitchen & bathroom remodels, room additions and outdoor spaces. If you can dream it, we can build it.

Who will be in charge of my project?

At New Beginnings, each project is assigned a project manager and that person can handle all questions.

Can we live in our home during construction?

It depends on the scope of work so in many cases you can. You can expect your home to be kept secure throughout the project and broom cleaned everyday at the end of the day. We make every attempt to limit the flow of dust to our specific work area.

Who is responsible for getting building permits?

We will handle acquisition of any permit needed to do work. Rest assured that we are experienced contractors and abide by any rules and regulations to remain in compliance with city and state laws.

My home is not built up to code. Can we still remodel?

Yes, we come across many homes and structures that have been altered and do not meet code. As long as we are not working on an area of the structure that is nonconforming, we may be able to leave it as is. Any alterations on nonconforming areas will be brought up to code. We can discuss in further detail upon our initial consultation.

I already have an architect I am working with, are we a fit for your remodeling company?

Yes, our design process is modeled as non-competitive for outside professionals. We have the experience and know how to fulfill any plans created by your designer.

Can you help me pick out materials and finishes?

Yes, we have a team of professionals ready and willing to guide you through this process. Our interior designer is always available to consult with you at any stage during your project.

How long will it take for work to begin?

Each schedule is different. The timeline will vary depending on the design process and scope of project. During your initial consultation we will be able to give you an estimated timeline.

Do you guarantee finish dates?

We can and we will.

We aren’t sure of our budget and we just don’t have any idea what remodeling costs?

In our experience we have found that a client rarely knows the typical cost of their vision for their remodel. We like to talk openly about expectations and costs so you will have a clear idea of what you can afford. Once we get the conversation going, we can usually determine a budget range you are comfortable with. We will then help design a space you love and can afford.

How are the payments structured for the cost of your remodeling projects?

We will discuss pricing in our initial consultation. Payments may vary based on special order products, timelines and deposits due. There is usually a fixed price that only changes with a change order from the customer.
