Remodel or Rebuild?

Planning a major remodel and aren't sure it it would be easier/cheaper to just start over?  There are several things to consider:

  • Safety
  • Future Plans
  • Costs

Building Codes

  • Any residential improvement that involves 25% or more of the existing structure; and/or adds more than 25% to the original structure, requires that fire sprinklers  be installed.
  • If the roof comes off or if more than 50% of the structure is torn down or remodeled, the remaining building must be brought up to current codes

City Review Fees

This list may not include all fees that may be applicable to your project; it is meant only to help you in estimating.  Final fees will be calcluated at submittal.
