Remodeling Cost Estimates

Real Estate Agent with The Stark Company Realtors, Madison WI 53123-94


My good friend and certified home inspector in Dane County and Fitchburg Wisconsin,  Harry Andruss , sent me these Contruction and Remodeling Cost Estimates Guide.  Even though we are friends, he would never favor me or be anything but fair, thorough and professional with any home inspection ordered. He is clear,  explains every aspect of the home and labels shut off valves and documents everything during the process. Here is the Pillar to Post guide to remodeling.

Repairs And Upgrades: How Much Will They Cost?

During the process of buying or selling a home, your clients often learn about recommended or
required repairs and upgrades. This can happen as a result of the home inspection as well as your expert knowledge of your market and comparable homes. Of course, the first thing homeowners
want to know is, “How much will that cost?”

Pillar To Post is pleased to offer our popular Residential Construction and Remodeling Estimatescost guide, which provides estimated cost ranges for repair and/or replacement of the major systems and components in a home. It also includes general guidelines for the life expectancies of those systems. This information can help your clients make informed decisions when they’re considering home repairs or improvements, and is valued by buyers and sellers alike. Below is just a sampling
of our list of estimated costs for hundreds of repairs/upgrades.

Hi, love the list. I think the security system is a little pricy. Now that there are wireless systems (ADT) they are pretty cheap to install. Monthly cost is a correct range.
