Thinking about remodeling your home? Start here.

Sooner or later you may join the millions of people who remodel their homes each year. Perhaps it's at that moment when you realize that avocado green and harvest gold are no longer the "in" colors for today's trendy kitchens. Or maybe you have an epiphany one day as you stand in line to use your own bathroom. Whatever the impetus, the thought crosses your mind: Maybe it's time to start a home remodel. The reasons for home remodeling are as varied as the projects we undertake.

Some of these include:

  • Adding more space
  • Upgrading cabinets, counters, appliances and fixtures
  • Creating a floor plan that's customized for your lifestyle
  • Improving energy efficiency with new windows, doors, insulation, and climate control systems
  • Increasing the resale value of your home

Where to Begin
The first step is to develop an idea of what you want to do with your home remodel. Write a prioritized list of your needs and wants. Look at magazines and websites and collect pictures of homes or remodeling projects you like. Visit with vendors and professional remodelers at home and expo shows to get concrete ideas. The more clearly you can envision the project, the better prepared you'll be in making your decision.

Think about traffic patterns, furniture size and placement, colors, lighting and how you expect to use the remodeled space. If your decision to remodel involves creating better access for someone with limited mobility, you may want to consider contacting a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist.

You may want to improve home efficiency and hire a remodeler for green home remodeling. These projects include replacing windows and doors, upgrading heating and cooling systems, adding insulation, and other remodeling to make the home more energy-efficient, easier to maintain, and comfortable.

Figure out how much money you have to spend on the home remodeling job, furnishings, landscaping or any other cost you might incur.

Choose Your Options
Once you have created a list of what you would like out of your home, the next step is to hire a Professional Remodeler of Oregon (PRO). If you’re looking for someone to help craft your vision for your home, PRO members are great place to start. The Professional Remodeler’s Organization is comprised of local remodelers who know how to navigate the permitting processes in your city to make your dream home a reality. These remodelers are of the highest integrity and standards in the industry. For a directory of licensed remodelers of the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Portland, click here.
