A whole-house home renovation is an all-encompassing renovation that's designed to remodel and revamp every aspect of the home.
There are plenty of reasons why homeowners choose to perform a whole-house home renovation. For instance, you may buy a house for its location but find that the interior of the house is lacking and of poor quality. A whole-house home renovation allows you to have input over the entire design.
Portico covers every aspect of the remodeling process by handling the design and construction work under the same contract. When remodeling your entire home, it's important that the work is efficient and structured. If separate contracts need to be signed for the design and construction work, you may find it difficult to get everyone on the same page.
Portico strives to provide quality service to all of our customers, which means that professionalism and expediency are essential to the work we perform and the customer service we provide.
Before your whole-house remodel project begins, we'll work with you to develop a structured timeline that fits your schedule. Then, our team will work efficiently to ensure faster project delivery.
By partnering with trusted, local contractors and subcontractors we've worked with for years, we are able to obtain reduced construction costs for all of our customers.
From the moment our work begins, each member of Team Portico aims to deliver higher-quality results that we can be proud of and you can be satisfied with.
If you want to renovate your entire home, you can expect to pay anywhere from $15,000-$200,000 in total costs.
The main factors that play a part in how much your home remodel will cost include:
Our team is able to provide whole-house renovations for historic homes throughout Charlotte. However, there are some unique challenges that present themselves during this type of renovation.
For one, the materials in the home are usually much older, which makes them less stable and sometimes more difficult to work with.
Despite these challenges, our team is well-equipped to handle any issues that might arise when renovating a historic home. Plus, Team Portico can guide homeowners through the historic district commission approval process.
We’ll work with you to determine how extensive you want the remodeling project to be. While this consultation is ongoing, our team members can help you understand the scope, timeline, and estimated costs of your project.
Before any new work can occur, the aspects of your home that are being changed may need to be demolished. The demolition process can involve everything from tearing down walls to removing wallpaper.
This process can take upwards of one week for an entire home. Afterward, the rebuilding stage will begin, which involves the basic framework being added to your home to accommodate future additions and installations.
Gas and water utilities will be repositioned to account for the new layout. During this stage of the process, your entire home may need to be rewired.
Once the framework in your home is up and ready, the walls will usually be added next. This process begins by inserting insulation, after which drywall will be hung. The walls will be sanded to make sure that they are ready for wallpaper or paint. The flooring you’ve chosen will then be installed, which is a relatively straightforward aspect of the whole-house remodel process.
Any new cabinets and appliances that you’ve selected will be installed. Our team works hard to make sure that the walls and flooring are left undamaged during this stage of the process.
Our team at Portico has been in the home renovation industry for many years. During this time, we've built a strong reputation as being a reliable and trustworthy contractor you can count on.
Whole-house projects are difficult and require an extensive amount of planning. Throughout every stage of the process, we strive to communicate with our clients on a regular basis to keep them aware of how the project is progressing.
Whole-house renovations are large projects that can take many months to finish. For such an expansive project, it's important that the people you work with are trustworthy and have your best interests in mind.
Our team aims to innovate wherever possible by using the latest materials and techniques for whole-house projects.
Personalization is a key focus for our team at Portico. Once we're done with the renovation, we want your home to match your exact design specifications.
Can you remodel a whole house?
The same principles that are used to remodel a single room can be used to remodel an entire house. The only differences between these projects include total project costs and project duration.
Is it cheaper to remodel a whole house or buy a new home?
It's usually much cheaper to remodel a house instead of buying a new home. Unless you downsize by moving into a much smaller home, remodeling a home should be more affordable.
Can I live in my home during a whole-house renovation?
You can definitely live in your home while it's being renovated. However, doing so can be frustrating because you'll need to make way for the subcontractors when they decide to work on a specific room. It may be easier to find another place to live during construction.
How long does a whole-house renovation take?
The amount of time it takes to complete a whole-house renovation depends on the size of your home and the scope of the project. Whole-house remodels can take anywhere from 6-15 months.
