This cost translates into certain during the renovations works and adds value to the property.

THE BEGINNING OF REMODELING THE HOUSE IS...
Thinking about remodeling your house?
Surely, you're overwhelmed with doubts and, in fact, don't even know how to start?
Information for a complex topic such as home remodeling is dispersed and not always enlightening. It is important to find out if the works that you will carry out are works that require a license from the local entities, or if they are ok to perform without a building permit.
House remodeling is an intervention in a property distinct from reconstruction and rehabilitation. The latter correspond to more transformative and more complex works, from a technical, financial and temporal point of view. The remodeling of houses is simpler, it is a process that does not interfere with the structure and that, generally, can be framed in works without license. On the other hand, the reconstruction and rehabilitation of properties, foresees processes and projects, as they can integrate the alteration of the structure, increase of areas, alteration of typology, alteration of the roofs’ configuration and designs of facades.
In house renovations, there are often changes in the layout of the plans, but these changes can integrate licensing / prior communication processes or just license for use authorization.
Interior works that are new paintings, wallpaper, new floors and infrastructure modernization are simpler interventions to perform.

We remind you that to be able to effectively compare quotations, you will have to deliver to each contractor the same briefing, in this case the same project and quantity map.
A successful house renovations starts with a good preparation and working method.
Nothing better than carrying out a personalized project that guarantees the level of detail to execute on site. The look and contribution of our architects, both in the site works and, in the project, make all the difference in the result of the remodeling of houses. The countless possibilities that a space provides are often the magic of a home remodeling.
The valuation of a property goes far beyond the placement of a new floor or the mere painting of walls. Here, don't think just about the cost, but about the value it adds to the property. Hiring a team of experienced architects in the sector, adds value to your investment and is a guarantee of final quality and minimization of future problems and pathologies. It will also make your home remodeling a differentiated final product.
REMODEL HOUSE: SHOULD I STAY IN THE HOUSE DURING THE WORKS?
Keeping up with a house under construction is, most of the time, very difficult.
Living with a scenario of dust, rubble, furniture, and equipment out of place, the inevitable cut of water and electricity, are just a few points that we highlight in this home remodeling adventure. The lack of comfort will be such that you will regret having started the remodeling. If the house renovation is done this way, it is very likely that it will take longer to execute, since there is not so much control, and the pace of work is slower. Having that possibility, we recommend that you plan for the costs of the remodeling and also for temporary accommodation. By doing this, you don't get into 'burnout' during the work, if you insist on living in this environment.
WHICH BUDGET IS RIGHT FOR HOUSE RENOVATIONS WORKS?
Certainly, planning (project) is important for the execution of the works, but don't forget that the time to dedicate to its elaboration is also very important.
Hiring a professional is the right decision. It is essential to dedicate yourself to the project and give the clues of your needs so that the architect can give you the answers you are looking for with the remodeling of the house.
Estimating the cost of the works is also a significant stage. In carrying out a remodeling project, the realist vision of the homeowner is essential for the success of the project. It doesn't matter to have a lot of ambitions, if the execution capacity is low. It all depends on the extent of the works, the materials used, the integrated technologies and the specifications of the infrastructure and the furniture pieces (whether integrated or not) and decorative items chosen.
Home staging/point refurbishment: includes replacing carpets, painting walls or introducing wallpaper, replacing some furniture. Of course, the spec level is fundamental, but you can count on around €300 per m².
Partial renovation: includes the renovation of the kitchen or the remodeling of the bathroom, or of another room, and focuses on a specific compartment. For the kitchen and bathrooms, it can be around €2000 per m².
Total renovation: the total transformation house renovations with the alteration of the floor, windows, infrastructure, with the modification of plumbing, insulation. It can cost between €1,000 to €1,500 per m². We warn that these are reference values, which depend on the complexity of your work, location, risk, logistics which will may vary the costs.
GO FROM PROJECT TO REMODELING WORKS
Improving a home's appearance and functionality without having to do major renovations is virtually impossible.
There are different categories of works that can be carried out, to avoid deeper works, but the guarantee of a well-done remodeling is being able to identify the essential to change. That is why it is so crucial that the construction works are defined and described exhaustively—so home renovation contractors can just follow on site. As the guide for the house renovations work is created in advance — for a detailed remodeling project, any construction professional can execute, just following the project.
The project steps specified and approved in advance, which ensures that the work planning is naturally and without interruptions. House renovations should be seen as a global process and with technical requirements to be met, so you should take this into account when deciding to hire a construction company.
One of the big differences for other companies is that the Client can look for other contractors for himself, in a system of free choice, and choose what is most convenient for him. In home remodeling, the ability to have the guiding thread defined is a must and the plus is to ensure that the execution is carried out with the quality and demand for the design team.
