As people continue to spend more time at home, investing in a remodel is a smart way to bring new life to your house. But the idea of taking on a remodeling project can be overwhelming. After all, where do you begin? And how do you ensure your project’s success while juggling dozens—if not hundreds—of moving pieces? Hiring a custom home builder is an excellent place to start.
With a custom home builder, you can ensure every detail of your remodel is considered from start to finish. Unlike a general contractor who focuses primarily on the big picture while managing different subcontractors, a custom home builder is well-versed in the many details that go into the design and functionality of your home. This allows the builder to seamlessly complete your remodel with a specialized in-house crew.
The Advantages of Remodeling with a Custom Home Builder
Before you embark on a remodel, consider these five benefits of partnering with a custom home builder to bring your vision to life.
Same location, all-new feel
You purchased your home for the location (location is everything, after all). But maybe the structure itself leaves something to be desired. Whether it’s an outdated kitchen or an inefficient layout, a custom home builder can transform your home to suit your modern lifestyle.
If you feel reluctant to move, you’re not the only one. Staying put is one of the main reasons people choose to remodel their homes. In the United States, only 35% of homeowners would rather move to another home than remodel their current home. That leaves 65% leaning towards a remodel.
A single point of contact from start to finish
While a general contractor typically sub-contracts jobs to execute construction based on drawings prepared by an architect, a custom home builder plans and executes all phases of your project. A builder guides you through each step, from developing the plan to the final walkthrough.
If your builder needs to contract out a specialized job, such as plumbing or electrical, they’ll serve as a liaison—handling any back and forth communication on your behalf and always keeping your best interests in mind.
At CNC, we take pride in building personalized relationships with each of our clients. With an emphasis on communication, we work tirelessly to ensure a seamless remodeling experience from end to end. You can trust the details to us.
Increase your return on investment
Any update that improves the livability of your home is a valuable investment in and of itself. According to the National Association of Realtors 2019 Remodeling Impact Report, 74% of homeowners have a greater desire to spend time at home after remodeling. Another 65% report increased enjoyment in their home, and 77% feel a notable sense of accomplishment when reflecting on their completed project.
Beyond personal satisfaction, a remodel increases the monetary value of your home. Looking at the 2019 Remodeling Impact Report again, interior improvements recovered up to 106% of the project cost, and exterior projects recovered up to 107% of the cost.
When it comes time to remodel your home, a custom home builder can recommend elements that increase your property’s liveability and value, such as view-oriented windows, an outdoor kitchen, or an open floor plan where people can gather around a wood-burning fireplace. At CNC, we weave form and function to create a space that feels true to you—and stands the test of time.
Tailored to your taste
A remodel also allows you to reimagine your home. Whether your family has grown or your lifestyle has changed somehow, a custom home builder can tailor your space to support the ebb and flow of your daily life.
Or perhaps you want a unique space that doesn’t come standard in existing homes, such as an in-home movie theater, elegant dining room, gourmet chef’s kitchen, or personal gym. With experience in all the above, CNC helps excavate your vision and bring it to life in a way that honors the beauty and tradition of your home.
Embrace the era of efficiency
Looking to minimize your carbon footprint? With a custom home builder in your corner, you can maximize energy-efficiency and incorporate eco-friendly materials into your remodel plans. CNC has been building homes in Central Oregon for more than 50 years—so we know the ins and outs of optimizing energy efficiencies throughout the seasons.
Incorporating energy efficiency strategies into your remodel is a sure-fire way to responsibly increase the long-term value of your home, reduce your environmental impact, and save money over time. And we make it look good, too.
