Partnering With Your Kansas City Remodeling Contractor – The Importance of a Positive Relationship

Having a good relationship with your remodeling contractor when remodeling a kitchen, bath, or other room in your Overland Park home is extremely important – in essence, you want to partner in the project. It IS your home, and you expect the results you envision for your living spaces. A positive relationship not only leaves you with a good feeling, it also helps ensure your project turns out just as you expected. At Vision Builders, we believe in partnering with our clients for a number of reasons including the following.


On a scale of one to ten, how important is it for you to be in a partnership with your remodeling contractor? It should rate right up there at the top. Here’s why:


As a homeowner, you have a dream or vision of what you want in the rooms of your home. Clear communication is key to outstanding results; you help us understand exactly the results you desire, which in turn helps us formulate a plan of action.


Most homeowners in the Kansas City area have an idea about the finishes and materials they would like to use, however it’s unlikely you have a bottomless bank account. We believe that partnering with our clients helps us have a clear, focused idea of what you want, which helps us achieve your goals while staying within budget.


You want to know exactly what work will be performed in your remodeling project. It is your home, your money – you are entitled to know every detail and what the cost will be before the work is completed. We provide our clients with a comprehensive scope of the work to be performed, so there are no unpleasant or unexpected surprises.


How long will the remodeling project take, and when will it begin? Those having a room remodeled are anxious to get started, and even more anxious to have their project completed so they can enjoy it. We know having a timeline is essential, and we will give you one – and stick to it!


You want to enjoy your home during the course of the remodeling work. We understand it’s difficult to be comfortable when a construction/remodeling project is underway. Our work force is not only talented, we are considerate. We will do our best to stay out of your way, and we will never leave a mess for you to have to navigate around.


As trusted Overland Park remodeling professionals, we’re a bit different from most contractors you may have run across in the past. We don’t want to sell our services to you, our goal is to gain new friends and create fans of our work. At Vision Builders our top priority is going beyond your expectations, which can only be accomplished by partnering with you.

What Should You Expect to Pay For a Master Bath Remodel?

What will my master bath remodel cost? At Vision Builders, we know this is a valid question asked by savvy homeowners who are in the process of bringing the dreams they envision for their homes to life. While we wish we could offer you a simple formula to determine what the cost to remodel your bath would be down to the last penny, it simply isn’t that easy.

There are many factors that affect how much your master bath project will cost, and many questions to answer. Over the years we have learned what the most important questions to ask our clients are, in an effort to help you make informed and educated decisions.

One of the most important questions we ask potential clients is, “How long do you plan to remain in your home?” The answer to this question alone can and should drive some of the selection processes. We also believe in getting a “wish list” from our clients, and determining all of the various possibilities when it comes to the selection of surfaces and other building materials. Knowing what materials will be used and the scope of the project (how involved the master bath remodel will be, the size of the finished bathroom, etc.) help us come closer to a realistic budget number for the client.

At Vision Builders, we believe in transparency. Before we offer you a budget number for your master bath remodel, we are happy to show you the National Cost versus Value Report of 2015, a well-known and trusted report that provides a wealth of information and data for various regions in the U.S., including the West North Central area. By comparing various remodeling projects to the national average and regional average, homeowners will realize the services offered by our company are cost-effective. Not only do Kansas City homeowners enjoy a more beautiful, functional master bath, you will also understand how much of the cost you would re-coupe should you decide to sell at a later date.

While the National Cost versus Value Report of 2015 is designed to give homeowners a good idea of average costs to remodel a master bath, it is still important that you keep in mind the actual cost of any remodeling project may vary substantially depending on the factors (such as scope of project, selection of materials) mentioned earlier in this article.

Today’s bathrooms are a far cry from those of 15-20 years ago and are not only highly functional, but beautiful as well. Usually bigger and brighter, a master bath can be the ideal spot to relax and unwind after a hard day, whether you desire a steam room or perhaps even a sound system to soothe you as you soak in the tub.

Ultimately, Vision Builders consistently offers the best value for your investment due to the skill and workmanship of our contractors. Proper installation and absolute attention to details are vital for any home remodeling or renovation project. We are committed to excellence, so call Vision Builders for your master bath remodeling project today
