Before you begin gutting and demolition, it’s important to communicate with Sierra Remodeling experts and carefully research and plan your remodeling project. It’s a big, big undertaking and, we assure you, your proper planning and partnering with us will save you time, money and frustration.
Where to begin
We recommend you check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and review the contractor’s record and any complaints. Also make sure the remodeling firm is licensed with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC). Sierra Remodeling’s ROC Licenses are #080355 and #066290. We encourage you to request referrals from us and read our clients’ comments too.
Evaluate your existing home
Remember, the dollars you pay for a thorough home inspection will help identify those hidden issues that could cost you thousands of dollars after your home is remodeled! Sierra Remodeling ensures the home inspection is carefully and meticulously conducted. If there are any doubts raised during the evaluation, we will keep investigating until you are sure of the assessment.
Draft a reasonable wish list
An honest evaluation will ensure critical home problems are identified up-front and fixed during the remodeling project.
Sierra Remodeling’s professionals will assist you in finalizing your wish list ensuring your must-haves are in line with your home evaluation and budget. We will also be mindful that the final outcome will be your wishes not our designer’s vision. We listen!
At Sierra Remodeling, our vast experience allows us to quote more precise estimates and actual costs, not ballpark figures. You can be confident that our cited contract costs will be very close to the actual billed amounts and the total cost to you at the end of the project. Realize if you make changes during the course of the remodel or home build, there will be additional charges and more time will be needed to complete your project. Again, your solid up-front planning and sound communications with our staff will help you ensure changes will be not be necessary.
Secure and pin down finances
Our customers generally have to weigh between getting a Home Equity loan versus a Reverse Mortgage loan versus taking out considerable savings or investments. To help you with financing your remodel, Sierra Remodeling has partnered with Wells Fargo and, we currently offer Home Improvement loans with rates as low as 7% for 60 months.
Finally, we recommend budgeting ten to twenty percent additional funds for those unexpected issues that are discovered during the remodel and, must be repaired. This frequently occurs when problems are not identified during your home’s evaluation and generally, the older the home the more prone it is to cost overruns.
Hire a team of experts
Lots of contractors pretend to be licensed. To find out if a contractor’s ROC license is current and see other information related to the license, visit the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC). Sierra Remodeling’s ROC licenses are #080355 and #066290. Additionally, our corporation is bonded and insured. We have been serving and building the surrounding communities since 1979 and, our Better Business Bureau rating is A+! We invite you to review our records at the ROC and the BBB! Take some time to read our many Clients Comments which will give you a better insight into our company and our staff.
Now that our bathroom renovation is finished and our house has returned to normal, Tom and I want to take this opportunity to express our thanks for a job well done.
Not only was the project completed on time and on budget, we were especially impressed with how well Matt Frederich worked to put all of the pieces together. Matt showed tremendous versatility installing the DuraBath system, texturing of walls, painting, electrical, plumbing, etc. Matt’s keen attention to detail and his “old school” work ethic was especially noticeable during the teardown and construction process leading to a beautiful and highly functional result. Matt also took time to carefully place protective cardboard walkways and plastic sheeting in our house to minimize dust and debris. Our thanks also to Ricky Richert who worked so hard with Matt during the teardown process, and to Sue who did a beautiful job laying our new tile.
We are very pleased with our new bathroom and would not hesitate to recommend Sierra Remodeling to our friends. Thank you also to Otto Richert for his assistance and follow-through during the whole renovation process.
Every time I pass our new bathroom, I have to stop and peek in to admire our beautiful bathroom.
