A: The length of a home renovation project will vary depending on the scope of work, but we can give an idea of duration early in design. All of our construction agreements include an approximate start date and completion date.
A: For most projects, you can live in your home while it is being remodeled. Our carpenters take care to section off the area where they are working to minimize disturbance through the rest of your house. Before the home renovation project begins you will have a full understanding of the level of disturbance.
A: Pete’s Remodeling and Repair, LLC will file all of the construction permits needed to complete the home renovation project.
A: If you have a home renovation project in mind, now you must decide: will you hire a remodeler or do the job yourself? The chance to save money is the biggest reason homeowners consider DIY remodeling. However, this could end up being the wrong decision if you can’t answer “yes” to all of the following questions:
A: We specialize in large projects, including bathrooms, kitchens, basements, outdoor spaces, home additions, and whole-house renovations. If you have a major change in mind to modernize your home and make it more functional, we are the design/build team for you!
Our clients can be as involved as they like throughout the design process—whether that’s as much as possible or letting Pete’s Home Remodeling and Repair, LLC take the wheel. Our biggest concern is meeting our clients’ needs and exceeding their expectations.

We take great pride in our companies’ reputation of dealing with clients with the foremost in integrity. Customer satisfaction is part of our business model and we look forward to working with you on a kitchen remodel, bathroom renovation or any other type of home remodeling project.
A: Unfortunately, there is no assurances that we can provide our clients that when we uncover unwanted conditions that there will not be conditions that require unseen repairs or updating. If we included the cost of all the anticipated repairs that could go wrong, our remodeling prices would reflect over charging our clients if these conditions did not materialize. We will work with you during every phase of the home renovation and will notify you if we uncover any issues that would result in a price increase or decrease.
A: Things happen that are not intentional or planned for. We remain accountable for our work and the unexpected consequences of our work causing residual damages to your home. In the unlikely event that the damage is a significant loss, we are fully insured and will stand behind work.
A: Depending on the scope of your home remodeling project, there will likely be some brief interruption to utilities. During the demolition phase, and when we bring in the rough trades (electrical, plumbing, HVAC), electrical, water and gas may need to be shut off anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. If we are connecting new gas pipes to your existing pipes, we will need to unhook your gas appliances and test the whole system for leaks. This could take a whole day. Moving an electrical panel or upgrading an electrical panel will likely also take a whole day. In any case, we will give you advance warning so that you can plan accordingly. We would like this home remodel to be as minimally evasive as possible.
A: Aging in place design is becoming a critical element these days. For showers, two important aspects of design to consider are grab bars and curbless entry. Grab bars are an obvious, easy addition as long as during design we make them work aesthetically. Curbless showers take significantly more planning, as we need to make sure the area of floor in the shower is lower than the rest of the framing. This means designing the framing to be recessed in that area.
A: There are many options for flooring, when designing a kitchen. If the kitchen design is an open concept, it is usually best to keep the same type of flooring all through the space. Hardwood floors, engineered hardwood floors, laminate, tile, linoleum or cork are some of the materials that can work well in a planned kitchen remodel. There are pros and cons to every material when it comes to price, aethetics, upkeep, durability and physical impact. Consulting a professional will help you choose flooring options that are just right for you to build your dream kitchen.
