If you're looking for whole house remodeling in Sacramento, you no doubt know that you have a considerable undertaking ahead of you. A complete house renovation begins with understanding the sheer scale of the project, as well as accurately planning what to expect at every stage. Here's what you'll want to keep in mind before you begin, as well as how to best choose a whole house remodeling contractor in Sacramento.
No two home renovation projects are alike, so it's a good idea to hire experienced, reputable and reliable contractors who specialize in their respective fields. At HouseIdea, our remodeling contractors in Sacramento are true experts in their field. We work alongside certified, professional electricians, plumbers, architects and more to help you realize your full home remodeling vision.
But just putting it down on paper (or blueprints) is only the beginning. You also need to have a realistic idea of the costs involved. Depending on the extent of the whole house remodel, you may want to consider a home equity loan or a similar source of funding. However, the bottom line is that with a whole home remodel you should also consider the resale value. Many Americans will sell their home at least once in their life. Riding out that entire 30 year mortgage is rare, so renovating your house could be a smart investment not only for you, but for future buyers as well.
When hiring professional home remodelers, it's also important to consider where you are. You may need certain permits and there may be zoning issues involved in your remodel. At HouseIdea, we understand and can help you secure the necessary permits and approvals to handle your full home remodel.
A home remodel means different things to different people and for some, even the term "whole house remodel" refers to a combination of rooms rather than the entirety of the home. There's also the "fun things" to consider, or the things that all homeowners look forward to when they envision a home remodel in Sacramento. For example, you can completely overhaul the style of your home, redo the decor and theme and work with your design-build contractors to see how your vision can come to life with different design styles and additions.
Beyond the style and look of your home, you'll also need to keep the technical points in mind. For example, your utilities. Gas, water and electricity may add some different challenges and constraints to your remodeling plans, especially if you're planning to significantly remodel or change the structure of your home considerably. By consulting the remodeling team at HouseIdea, you can have an idea of what changes are more do-able than others before the work begins so that you'll know how to budget accordingly and what to expect.
Another finer point of whole home remodeling is structural requirements. If you want to add on an addition, for example, every city or jurisdiction, including Sacramento, has its own requirements as to what constitutes an acceptable change according to its building code. Here again, the experts at HouseIdea can advise you on what's possible and what isn't as you work with our design-build firm in Sacramento on your full house remodeling.
It can feel overwhelming to know where to start when it comes to home remodeling, but as a company that has done whole home remodels for every size and style of home and nearly every budget, we've seen precisely what's possible and have helped thousands of homeowners across Sacramento achieve their vision for their home.
This is one area where you don't want to cut corners, forget permits or try to do it all yourself. It's a hefty investment, but one that can come with a considerable payoff in the end when you see your design come to life and how amazing it can be to maximize your space and your home's efficiency. It's an exciting undertaking to be sure, and we want to be there to help you with it every step of the way!
When you're just getting started, collect inspiration and ideas anywhere! Magazines and Pinterest are a great place to start. We also use images of our past work to help clarify and add a more concrete idea to our customers' visions for their home remodel. We're more than happy to show you our portfolio of complete home remodeling in Sacramento just so you can see what's possible for your own home!

Whether your family is growing or you need greater accessibility to maintain your independence in your home, or for any reason in between, a whole house remodel can be exactly what you need to see your vision through to completion. Life changes over time and so do your priorities. Shouldn't your house change to accommodate those needs?

IdeaHouz was an awesome company to work with. It was a pleasure to work with Vall the general contractor. References are important. Vall was very responsive and able to show us the great work that he and his team does. We must have seen over 4 different properties he was working on within the first day. I was able to witness good quality work. I also noticed he did post contemporary and modern styles which suited my needs. Financially, he offered the best deal out of 10 contractors I had interviewed. He is fair with his pricing and is honest about what he can and can’t cut. He runs a business after all. He was great with my kids and wife’s safety and well being throughout the remodel. No one really knows how a full house remodel takes a toll on a family, but he made it easy. The design phase was great. My design was extensive. I knew exactly what I wanted, drew it on a graph paper, gave it to the architect and with some back at forth, he was able to create my dream remodel addition. Just understand that depending on where you are, there are limitations to what you can build. I found this out living in a city. The process of designing could take as long as the build. But it’s worth it and inspiring. We opted to move to a rental during construction. Vall was very responsive to every concern I had and allowed me to visit on site to monitor progress which is important. He was able to foresee what was coming and prepared me for what I can change and stuff I can no longer change once a phase is done. That was important because it gave me clear expectations through the many steps involved in the remodel. Change orders cost money and there will be some and some are unavoidable. One should prepare extra money aside for that. Things are going to go wrong. If a mistake is done on his part, Vall will go out of his way to fix it. He puts the hammer down on his workers to get it done right. It’s good to have him on your side. Overall my experience with IdeaHouz was excellent. Vall continues to still check on me and my family and how the house is doing which shows he cares and is committed to his work. And so far living in our newly renovated house, we couldn’t be more happier. No issues as of yet.
Vall and his company did our addition, it was a rather large job, 2200 sf. Vall’s bid wasn’t the lowest ( 2nd lowest) but that wasn’t the reason why we chose him. The job was complicated due to the current electrical capacity. All other builders gave bids with TBA for that complicated part of the addition and didn’t bother to look into it so we have an idea how much it might cost but Vall spent lots of time researching, getting bids to give us a good idea of cost. He came up with many creative solutions and answer all the questions we have. We have done many renovations in our previous homes so we want as few unknowns as possible to prevent cost from running out of hand. Vall had patiently work out all our concerns before we went into contract. We ended the project with less than 5% over original price. All construction has snags here and there but we worked through them fine and had a relatively smooth sailing. We were not happy with the metal roof job the first time but Vall went back and did it again to satisfy our request. We are very happy with our new addition. We got many compliments on it from friends and family. Vall always returned my calls and took care of any minor problems after job completed. I would recommend Vall without hesitation. He did a good job with very competitive price. After we finished my next door neighbor also used Vall for his renovation. I interviewed 4 builders for our job over 6 months before we chose Vall and we are happy we did.
