Brownstones are among the most expensive home improvement projects. If you’re not careful, you might end up paying for a six-figure renovation.
There are many special considerations when remodeling a brownstone, but you have to make sure you’re not paying for unnecessary jobs. Choose professionals who specialize in brownstones so that you can avoid wasteful spending.
Knockout Renovation®, a trusted apartment remodeling expert, lists some of the cost factors you need to take into account when remodeling a brownstone.
Size matters in any home improvement project and this refers to the space and the scale of work needed to be done. If you’re looking at costs per square foot, you’ll see that bigger homes cost slightly less than smaller ones but higher when you consider the total price.
If you live in a co-op, check if there are special rules about who can renovate and when. The timing may affect the cost of the services you’ll need so don’t forget to take this into consideration. Also, remodeling costs in certain parts of the country may be higher or lower than where you live. Compare prices from local contractors so that you can get a more accurate picture of your possible expenses.
Scope of Renovation
The scope of your renovation project will determine the type of professionals you’ll need for the job. For small renovations that involve new paints, refinishing floors and redoing one wet room, you’ll be fine working with just a contractor. But for bigger renovations that require permits, you’ll need an architect to help you out.
