Other Projects

Homes require all sort of renovation, and these changes can improve your home's security, durability, and energy conservation. Custom plans can also work for incredibly difficult or unique spaces. These areas need more planning beyond the traditional architectural plan, whether you have to plan around an awkward shape, window placement or specific kind of space, such as a basement. These spaces require much different renovation designs. For example, basements need waterproofing, sealing, moisture protective materials and intense lighting to change the space around. There are also specific considerations when remodeling, such as debris removal, clean-up, home insurance and security systems.

If your remodeling project will have you tearing down siding, handling hazardous or non-biodegradable materials, or throwing away a lot of wood and old furniture, then you'll need a debris removal service. Most contractors can help you with the clean-up of your remodel, but other contractors will hire another service to take your junk away. The disposal of these products is incredibly important. You can get into some real trouble for dumping or inadequately throwing away the discarded materials from your home remodel clean-up. You also want to make sure that you are using environmentally friendly methods of disposal.

There are some other unique projects that are specially made for your home, including indoor fire pits, skylights, solar design ideas, sprinkler systems and storage facilities. Whether you want to create new warmth with a fire pit or new light with a solar energy skylight, your home can have light or extreme changes that will change your home's warranty, insurance plan and security inclusions. These are just some of the things that you have to consider when looking at all of the projects with your home's remodel. You can find all sorts of interesting designs and plans through Remodeling Central to handle all of your unique projects.

Water and Fire Damage

For many homeowners, when water and fire damage occurs, they’re almost too hesitant to get involved with remodeling their property. There is always the underlying fear that there is going to be too much damage to their home and that they are not going to be able to handle all of the repairs. However, in many cases, most of the property can be repaired and salvaged if the homeowner has an experienced team of professionals working together with them on the remodeling project.


Depending on the amount of water and fire damage that has occurred within your home, as well as the circumstances, you may want to consider that the damage and the remodeling repairs may be covered by your home insurance, if you have any. It’s a good idea to get in contact with your insurance provider and find out if you are eligible for any options. In addition to these points, it’s crucial that you get an estimate of just how severe the damage may be. You don’t want to work with a contractor that underestimates the amount of damage that has occurred because this can cost you more money in the long run and may result in unreliable repairs that don’t actually address the problem within your home. Try to get a few different estimates and go with the option that is affordable but recognizes the most amount of damage. Even if you don’t believe that there’s that much damage present, going with the contractor that identifies the most amount of damage ensures that the individual will be doing a thorough job when they work on your property.


Generally speaking, for remodeling projects of this nature, you can expect to spend at least $2000 and above to handle the repairs. Costs will depend on the severity of the damage. Although these figures are within the typical range for this project, it is always recommended to get in contact with a professional in your area in order to find out the exact cost based on your project. It’s important to remember that prices and estimated costs will vary depending on the region you are located in and also the service itself. In most circumstances, professional services will be able to provide you with a generalized estimate of the costs associated with your goals. In some cases, it may be possible to save money if the individual is able to handle the task on their own as a DIY project, though the success of the results greatly depends on the skills of the individual.
