San Francisco Bay Area Remodel Costs
As you’re pinning incredible home remodel designs on Pinterest, creating your Houzz ideabooks, and buying every home style magazine you can find, it’s hard for the question of remodel budget not to creep in. Before you engage with a remodeling contractor, it’s helpful to understand how much a typical remodel costs in the Bay Area.
With a lack of pricing on most remodeling company’s websites, understanding what you’ll need for a home remodeling budget can be quite a mystery, especially if you’ve never remodeled before. And even if you’ve renovated in the last 10 years, prices change quickly. That’s why we’ve provided average kitchen remodel costs, bathroom remodel costs, and entire home remodel costs for design build renovation projects on this page, and on each project page in our portfolio. Due to the pandemic and significant increases in the construction materials and services market, the prices on projects in our portfolio are the prices paid in the last few years, not repriced in today’s dollars. We are working on updating these investment ranges in a rapidly changing market.
How The Pandemic Has Affected Renovation Costs
Since the onset of the pandemic, a recovering economy, and strong demand in the housing market, the construction landscape is rapidly shifting. We are seeing a new normal: more homeowners are working from home, children are distance learning, and people have been traveling less, both for business and for pleasure. Families’ priorities are changing and the dynamics of our lifestyles are still evolving. We are seeing the costs of materials as well as labor and sub-trade pricing increase significantly. The huge increase in demand during the pandemic, and disruptions in the supply chain are driving unprecedented increases in lumber, building materials and related services.
When quoted an initial investment range, be sure to ask your remodeling company whether the quote considers the almost inevitable increase in raw materials costs and sub-trade pricing that can happen through the course of your project.
