So you are wondering if now is a good time to start a remodeling project. It’s spring and you’re getting the itch. Maybe you’ve been thinking of finishing the basement, remodeling the kitchen, upgrading the bathroom, or adding a deck?

I’d say now is a great time and here’s some reasons to hire a licensed Georgia General Contractor for that remodel project.

1. Material cost is fairly inexpensive. Major retailers are offering discounts on materials. So if you hire a Georgia General Contractor just for labor, or hire the contractor for labor and material, either way you’re likely to see the reflection in the estimate.

2. Labor cost is down. Many Contractors are out of work, or willing to offer discounts. Be careful as well, because in down times, many crooks or shady contractors come out of the wood-work also. Always get at least 3 estimates. Check credentials by requesting the contractor to fax them to you. Look for General Liability Insurance, Business License, and State Contractors License, Referrals, and a written Job Scope.

3. Interest rates and home equity rates are at historic lows. If you still can obtain or have the credit, or have the cash out right, this is another bonus. We may never see these low interest rates again.

4. Selling your home is difficult right now and you’d likely not get as much as if you sold in let’s say 5 or 7 years from now. Maybe you need to expand by adding a bonus room, or garage, or finish the basement. This is more practical, and when home values rise, you make stand to make a nice profit from your remodeling project.
