Starting to feel a bit crowded in your home? Contact G&R Builders and learn about your options for adding new rooms to your existing space. We can even handle second-story additions, attics, and in-law suites – whatever you need to enhance the space (and value) of your home.
Thanks to our years of experience as a full-time construction company, we are capable of producing high-quality, stand-alone outdoor structures of all kinds. From decks and patios to grilling areas, fire pits, sheds, and more, we do it all! So, if you’re looking to customize your home from the outside in, your first call should be to G&R Builders.
Older homes tend to have more “utility” style bathrooms, which doesn’t always suit our modern needs. So if you’re looking to upgrade to a bigger tub, add more storage, or improve your shower, we can help.
The kitchen is the most important room in your home and will largely determine its value when it comes time to sell. On top of that, it’s where you and your family spend most of your time – it should be both comfy and convenient. If you’re looking to upgrade your whole kitchen or just the backsplash, cabinets, or floors, you need G&R Builders.
Understanding the G&R Whole Home Remodeling Process
Our first step is to discuss and understand your vision for the remodel. We'll work with you to design every detail, from redesigning the spaces and rooms to finalizing the colors, trim, and hardware.
Once we understand what you want the project, our designers will start looking for the paints, woods, and other materials that will best meet or even exceed your vision, while also preserving your budget. Once this is complete, you’ll receive a detailed blueprint or digital comp to give you a taste of the final result.
When you’re dealing with whole home remodels in and around Houston, you need to get permits to work on the water supply, plumbing, and electricity. We’ll get all of these in order for you, so you don’t end up having to waste time dealing with the city or county.
With everything in order and final designs approved, our crews can start working. Though each project will have its own unique timeline, you’ll be assigned a personal project manager to keep you informed of our progress. They’ll also be there if you or your family have questions or concerns you want to be addressed.
The remodeling process consists of:
Out with the old and in with the new! Once you’ve cleared your home of any valuable and furniture, we can immediately start removing the unwanted parts of your structure.
This is where we begin to add the structural elements that will make up you new space. From new walls and dividers to door installations and more, this is the “skeleton” of your new home.
This is where the electricians, plumbers, HVAC engineers, and other experts will come in to do any necessary modifications to your utilities.
Walls and Ceilings
If there is any need for drywall, this is the point where that will be installed. Insulation of your choice will also be put on all walls that make contact with the outside.
If you’re changing the flooring or simply rehabbing your current floors, this is the point where that will take place. Depending on the type of flooring you have installed, this process can be quick or relatively time-consuming.
Counters & Cabinets
Bathrooms and kitchens will require new counters and cabinets in many cases. Once the floors are finished, we can start installing these as needed.
The appliances are what will really bring the space together into one cohesive unit. After a bit of polishing and cleaning up, we can bring in your new refrigerator, microwave, television, toilet, etc. (or simply reinstall your old ones).
Our teams are trained to treat your space, your property, and your family with the utmost respect throughout the entire remodeling process. That means showing up on time, getting as much done as time allows, and leaving the area as clean as possible every day.
The Top Questions to Ask Your Whole Home Remodeling
It depends on the specific house and situation. Gutting a house usually costs less, but there are many variables to consider.
For example, if the framing and walls are in good condition, it might make more sense to just rebuild the interior instead of gutting it. But if the wiring is outdated or there's extensive water damage, it might be cheaper to gut the entire house and start from scratch.
There are also many hidden costs that can add up quickly during a renovation project, such as demolition fees, dumpster rental, plumbing and electrical work, and labor costs. So, it's important to get accurate quotes from qualified contractors before making a final decision.
A full remodel generally includes demolition of the existing structure, installation of new framing, drywall, and insulation, as well as new flooring, cabinetry, appliances, and fixtures. It may also include upgrades to electrical wiring and plumbing.
Kitchen and bathroom remodels top the list of renovations that add the most value to a home, according to the latest Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value report.
Home projects that offer the best return on investment (ROI) typically have three things in common: they are relatively affordable, they make your home more appealing to potential buyers, and they are relatively easy to do. In general, you can expect to recoup about 60% of your investment when you sell your home if you undertake one of these popular projects.
A partial kitchen remodel is a remodeling project that focuses on specific areas of the kitchen rather than the entire space. This type of project is often more affordable and less disruptive than a full-scale kitchen renovation, making it a popular option for homeowners who want to refresh their cooking space without undertaking a major construction project.
There are many ways to approach a partial kitchen remodel, but some of the most common involve updating the cabinetry, countertops, flooring, lighting, or appliances. Many homeowners choose to focus on one or two key elements in their partial kitchen remodel, although it is possible to make multiple updates as part of this type of project.
1. Decide where you want your main living spaces to be. This might be a central living area with kitchen, dining and seating areas, or it might be separate kitchen, dining and living areas.
2. Plan the traffic flow through your house. You'll want to consider how people will move through the house - especially if you have a lot of guests!
3. Think about how you use each room in your house and whether it needs to be changed or updated. For example, do you need an office space or more storage?
4. Don't forget about the outside space! If you have a garden or yard, make sure it's usable and accessible from the house.
