Phased Remodeling

(This is a repost of an article we posted in August of 2009! Amazing how the trend continues...)


If it sounds like a bad thing – it’s not. Serial remodels, or phased remodeling projects, can go over several months and even years. For example, homeowners might opt to start slow with a remodel to a powder room or closet and then tackle a larger project, such as the kitchen, master bath or home addition.

According the the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, residential remodels are no longer those once-in-a-lifetime projects that keep homeowners dreaming years on end before they ever pick up a hammer. Instead, many homeowners opt to do a series of remodels as their schedules, budgets and lifestyles evolve over time!

Qualified Remodeler’s business website says that these phased remodeling projects are part of a larger trend in American consciousness, which Trendwatching calls “Foreverism.” It speaks to people’s desire to continue conversations, relationships and projects over time. Technology is driving people’s ability to find, follow, interact and collaborate forever with anyone and anything, and home improvement is just one of the areas benefiting from the trend.
AK has been cultivating relationships in our industry and with our clients for years. The care we take to listen and understand our client’s final vision for their new space, our ability to move forward in a timely manner, and our use of only the finest products and materials guarantees impeccable quality. That is why even before serial remodeling even became a term, our clients have been coming back to us for project after project. Some big, some small; but each one completed by a trusted friend. AK.

According to Qualified Remodeler, phasing a remodeling project has a number of benefits, besides cultivating contractor/client relationships. For homeowners who can’t fund the entire project upfront, breaking elements of a major home remodel into stages can help extend costs over time. Embarking on a series of smaller projects also keeps homeowners less stressed. We know it’s not always fun to see smiling AK faces on your doorstep at 8am…everyday…but the end results make it worth it! They’ll bring a smile to your face, too!
