Columbia Remodeling FAQ & Tips


Below are the answers to the questions most often received by Inspiration Renovations. We've also included a few tips that we hope will be useful. If you would like more information, or for the answer to any question not listed on this page, please feel free to contact us.

Q1 - Will I be able to stay home with my family while remodeling work is being done?

In most cases, the answer is yes. We strive to be as tactful and unobtrusive as possible and, where necessary, we schedule remodeling work one area at a time so that the rest of your home remains safe for you and your family to reside in. In some rare cases, especially if you require us to complete an extensive remodeling project on a tight schedule, we may recommend that you move to another area of your home for portions of the project.

Q2 - How long will my remodeling project take to complete?

The time required to complete your home remodeling project will greatly depend on the scope of the project as well as on the materials you have selected. The more extensive the work and rare the materials, the longer the project will take to be completed. Inspiration Renovations will be in a better position to offer a realistic time line once we've thoroughly evaluated your project and your property.

Q3 - When is the best time to plan my home remodeling?

Typically, the best time to remodel your home is when home values are down, because the cost of materials as well as the cost of labor will be more affordable than when the industry is booming. Although you may dream of having a spacious new addition, the project may not make sense if you plan to sell your house in a few years. A luxury bathroom can price your house beyond the values in your neighborhood

Q4 - What about permits?

Depending on your location and what is being done, a permit may or may not be required. If a permit is required for your project, we will compile the permit pack, obtain the permit and schedule all inspections. Regardless of the need for permits, all projects completed by Inspiration Renovations are built to code and we make sure that our process satisfies all requirements to the letter of the law. Our top priority is your safety and the longevity of your investment.
