What to Expect During a Kitchen or Bathroom Remodel in Kansas City

Approaching a home remodeling project can be intimidating, but once you’ve thought about how you’d like to use your space, you can be much more proactive and involved in the process. When you engage with any home remodeling contractor in Kansas City, you’ll want to be sure that you fully understand their processes and how you contribute to them. Using our own company as an example, NextGen Remodeling is here to explain what you should be prepared for, what you should think about, and how you can play a key role in creating the home of your dreams.

Read Through Our Home Remodeling Pricing Guides

Before you can choose the home renovation contractor you want to work with, you should get an idea of how much you can expect your new kitchen, bathroom, or basement to cost. Pricing varies by contractor, but not every contractor does the same quality of work, nor do they use premium materials. When comparing pricing, consider the finished results.

Request an Estimate Online

If, after reviewing the pricing guides, you’d like to get an estimate for your new kitchen or bathroom, it’s time to request an estimate online. You’ll need to include your name, email address, phone number, and street address on our form. You will then select which areas of your home you’d like remodeled; at NextGen Remodeling, we focus our work predominantly on kitchen and bathroom remodels in Kansas City, although we do complete upscale basements and whole-home interior renovations. Add any other details about your project, such as:
  • Square footage of spaces to be remodeled
  • Existing length of countertops for kitchen remodels
  • Description of the current condition of the spaces
  • The style and finishes you’d like in your project (granite versus marble countertops, type of cabinetry, flooring, tiles, and more)
  • Whether you want the overall floor plan to change (i.e. relocating gas stove hook-up or rearranging layout of the bathtub and toilet)
  • Any other ideas you have
When filling out our brief form, include as many details as you can. The more information you can give us, the more in-depth we can go in our initial conversation. Providing existing photos of your space, plus inspiration images that you like, is a great idea to add more context to your home renovation ideas.

Prepare to Visit With Our Home Remodeling Specialist

There isn’t much that you need to do to prepare for your home visit from our home remodeling specialist. Just make sure he can walk through your space and take measurements. In general, most of our clients don’t need to do anything except greet us at the door. During your home visit, our remodeling specialist will ask you clarifying questions about your project and ask to see the space or spaces you’re looking to remodel. Be prepared to answer these questions as thoroughly as possible, because it will help guide our estimate. This is also an excellent time for you to ask questions of your potential home remodeling company! Regardless of which one is taking a look at your home, you’ll want to ask about:
  • Whether they’re insured and licensed to work in your area
  • Whether you can contact references from past projects
  • Whether they have ideas for improving how you can use the space in your home
  • What you need to do to prepare for the remodel
  • Their timeline; how long will the project take? When can you start?

Review Your Estimate

After your home visit, our team will work to prepare an estimate for your home remodeling project. In about a week, we’ll email you your estimate and give you a call to discuss it. We’re happy to walk you through the services we’ll provide during your remodel, including getting a roll-off dumpster to place in your driveway and scheduling the days we’ll be in your home. If you like our estimate and plan for your Kansas City kitchen or bathroom remodel, then we’ll schedule your project.

During the Home Remodeling Project

During your project, our home remodeling company will manage everyone working on site, including our team of installers and any of our industry partners, such as plumbers or electricians. You don’t need to stay in your home with us the entire time; we’re great at communicating updates through text message or email. You can rest assured that the only people at your home are those who are supposed to be there. NextGen Remodeling’s full-time employees complete your project – never day laborers or freelancers. At the end of each work day, we tidy up and pack away our tools. We treat your home as if it was our own.

After the Home Remodeling Project

At the completion of your project, the NextGen Remodeling team thoroughly cleans your new kitchen or bathroom and invites you to walk through to examine our work. Once you’re fully satisfied with it, we’ll leave and let you enjoy your gorgeous new space. We’d also love to photograph it for our online portfolio of work!
