Where do Begin My House Remodeling Project?
If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about where to begin when it comes to a home upgrade project, you’re not alone! You can be a bit overwhelming to consider where to begin and what you should know when you’re embarking on a home remodel project. But rest assured there are many resources out there for you and we will discuss some important tips as you read ahead.
You are not Alone
Did you know? A recent survey by LightStream Home Improvement found that 58% of American homeowners are hoping to invest in home improvement projects during the year. But starting a home remodeling project can be a scary and frustrating prospect.
Caution is Warranted for the Remodeling Process
And with good cause! In fact, remodel contractors received the 2nd most consumer complaints in the U.S! So to combat those scary numbers, the team at Pro Remodeling in Tucson is here to help you get your footing on what to expect and where to begin with your home project.
Our proven guide will help you avoid a frustrating, costly experience with subpar contractors. Instead, we will set you up for success as you dream about the home improvement possibilities.
Step 1: The Research Phase
Generate Ideas & Explore What You Want
First, start your brainstorm by using the internet to explore what you like. Platforms like Houzz and Pinterest are fantastic for collecting pictures and styles you love.
At Pro Remodeling, we often use pictures from our clients to achieve the perfect look folks have in mind. After all, a picture says a 1000 words!
Plan Out a Remodel Budget
You want to start with a general estimate of what you can spend and how much the project you envision could cost.
At Pro Remodeling, we always provide free, no-obligation estimates for your project before we begin the work. Just call us at 520-745-5769 to schedule an appointment for an estimate!
Research Remodel Contractors
Search out remodel contractors in your area and consider the most popular review platforms while screening for quality and reliability. Sites like Better Business Bureau, Listing, and Houzz provide information on whether a contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured as well as other relevant factors.
Browse reviews on Google, Yelp, and others to decide whether the contractor in question is trustworthy and can provide quality results. In the contracting business, an overall rating of 4 out of 5 or better is considered to be a good rating since there are so many different factors at play.
At Pro Remodeling, we are happy to report a growing number of 5-star reviews from our satisfied customers across many platforms and an impressive 4.8 Google rating. When people are excited about amazing results and a smooth experience, they will share about it online!
Step 2: The Discovery Phase
Evaluate the Phone Call Experience
Good communication is key to enjoying a positive remodel experience. If the initial phone call with a contracting company is concerning, you may want to stop right there with the company.
The first phone call is important for both the contractor and the customer to make sure there is a good fit. So when you do make that first phone call, be ready with a description of your project, a rough budget, and many questions for the contractor to ensure they are qualified for the job.
Here are some of the most common questions a good contractor will ask. So you will want to have answers ready to the following types of questions:
- Where is your house located?
- What are you looking for in a contractor?
- What project or projects are you looking to complete?
- Why do you want to do this remodel project?
- When are you looking to have the project completed?
- Have you ever remodeled before? How was that experience?
- Does your estimated budget match up with the cost of the project?
The In-Home Meeting
Evaluate the experience for the in-home meeting. Does the contractor seem like a good fit? Are they prepared, experienced? Do they answer your questions openly and honestly? Will they be able to deliver on what you’re hoping to accomplish? Can they provide proof of credentials? It is a big decision to commit to partnering with a general contractor for getting home improvement projects accomplished, so go in with a clear head and a willingness to ask a lot of questions!
Step 3: The Plan Phase
By the time you are ready to sign the agreement, you have worked out what you expect from the project, how much it will cost, and how long the project will take. Once you are comfortable with all those factors, you are ready to sign the written agreement.
At Pro Remodeling, our number one goal is to provide exceptional service at an affordable price. Close collaboration and straightforward communication mean our contractors help you accomplish your remodeling goals according to your budget.
Our team has the experience, equipment, and know-how to deliver exceptional craftsmanship without wasting time, money, resources, or materials. As a result, we are happy to do custom and creative work to optimize your home’s layout.

Once all of the materials and building styles have been selected, we can get to work with optimal efficiency to prepare for the build, execute the project, and swiftly clean-up so you can get on with enjoying your new remodel.
