FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT HOME REMODELING

In the 35-plus years that we have invested in our clients, our Tallahassee remodeling contractors have been approached with a very, very broad variety of questions. Some of them might be strange and some of them might seem simple, but rest assured that all of your home remodeling questions are equally important! At Vanguard North, meeting your needs and keeping you informed about your home improvement project are of the utmost importance to us, so never hold a question because you might consider it a bother or insignificant.

Some questions we hear pretty frequently, especially when it comes to home additions and remodels. In an effort to provide you with a baseline understanding and hopefully to clear up some common misconceptions about home remodels, we thought it would be a good idea to build a compiled list of some of our most common queries!


IS MY REMODELING JOB TOO SMALL?

Absolutely not! Wanting the added assistance and surety that comes when you work with certified remodeling professionals is always an excellent idea. A good, successful remodeling job can be of any size or scale, whether you’re looking to change the entire home or just add a walk-in closet!


IS MY REMODELING JOB TOO LARGE?

Also, no. The experts at Vanguard North have extensive experience handling everything from a kitchen remodel or bathroom addition to an entire custom home. Regardless of where you want to start and how grand you envision the finish, we are the best remodeling company for you.


HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR A REMODELING COMPANY TO BE INSURED?

We’ve covered this topic more extensively in a recent blog, but we’ll tell you the same here that we did there. It is critically important to hire an insured remodeling company or custom home builder. Without proper licensing and insurance, you can be left hung out to dry by less scrupulous remodeling contractors. Insurance protects both you and the company, and it is absolutely necessary. This is why Vanguard North carries complete insurance and licensing; we do our very best to provide honesty and dependability to our customers.


DOES MY REMODELING JOB NEED A PERMIT?

Building codes do vary a bit from city to city, and from state to state. But the safe answer is yes. Generally, any home improvement project that alters the structure or living space of a home requires a building permit. As remodeling professionals and custom home builders, we carry the knowledge needed to ensure that if a permit is needed, it will be procured.


WHAT AM I RESPONSIBLE FOR DURING THE HOME REMODELING PROCESS?

Basically, you should be prepared to handle all of your personal items and possessions when you embark on a home renovation or remodel. Be sure that you have somewhere established to safeguard your possessions during the home remodeling process. This ensures the safety of your things, and additionally gives the designers, builders, and contractors a clear area to complete the remodel.


WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO GET STARTED WITH MY HOME REMODEL?

Pretty much the best way to start anything at all is communication! To begin your home remodel, we would urge you to contact our team to get the ball rolling. This will start with a scheduled meeting, where we can do all of our meets and greets and learn what exactly it is that you want to accomplish. Once that’s established, we can begin the overall remodeling process and detail to you how we will go about it.


WILL MY GOALS AND IDEAS BE IMPORTANT?

Important is an understatement. Your ideas, goals, and dreams are positively the number one most important part of any project. Any general contractor or home design team that says otherwise shouldn’t be doing remodel work! This is your home, and the remodel is your vision. Our job is to simply translate your ideas into functional realities, and Vanguard North works very hard to ensure that every home remodel is exactly what our clients want!
