What is the difference between a “General Contractor” vs. a regular contractor?

Arizona law requires contractors be licensed through the Registrar of Contractors (ROC) to legally perform construction or home repair and remodeling jobs if the total project cost is above $1,000.

Unlicensed contractors can endanger the health, safety, and welfare of the public. In short, if your home repairs will cost more than $1,000, the state of Arizona requires you to use a registered contractor.

Does Home Makeover AZ use experienced remodelers?

Our crew is comprised of full-time contractors that have been employed by Home Makeover AZ since the company started.

We only hire experienced remodelers and sub-tradesmen who have worked on homes full-time for a minimum of 5 years or more in the United States. We do not hire part-time helpers or students.

Does every remodeling job need a permit?

No. Building codes vary city by city, but are uncommon in residential remodeling.

A building permit generally is required whenever structural work is involved, or when the basic living area of the home is to be changed – think putting on an addition to your home.

If your project does require a permit—and your remodeling professional asks you to pull the permit—this should be a red flag. The professional you hire should be in charge of obtaining the necessary permits.

How much should my remodeling project cost?

This really depends on the size and scope of your project. The materials chosen, the size of the room, and age of the infrastructure can all impact the project cost. Remember when you are comparing bids that you are comparing the exact same scope from each contractor.

If a price comes in that looks to good to be true, it probably is.

How much value will my remodeling project add to my home?

This also depends on the scope of your project, and you may be surprised which projects add the most value.

Home Makeover project managers not only are Interior Designers and General Contractors, but also have a real estate background. If you goal is to maximize your return on investment, Home Makeover’s trifecta approach is a winning combo.

I have three different estimates, and the prices vary greatly. Why?

There are a number of different factors that go into pricing a remodeling project. Be sure that every estimate you receive has the same scope of work.

If the estimates are vague[meaning they don’t spell out what work is going to be done] and you cannot interpret that information, go back to the contractor for clarification in writing.

If you are unable to get adequate written clarification, it may be wise to eliminate that remodeling contractor from the process.
