Kitchens: the engine of your home

The kitchen is often called the engine that runs the home. We all need food for life of course, but the kitchen is so much more than that. It’s one of the most important rooms in your home and one that your guests will notice first. A modern kitchen is laid out to be efficient and easy to work in as well as easy to keep clean. Remodeling a kitchen can be a small and simple project such as replacing and updating appliances like the refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, and countertops. Or it might be more involved with all new cabinetry or even changing the space with the addition or removal of some walls. Budget Construction has the experience with kitchens to make your dream a reality!

Bathroom renovations

Updating and modernizing your bathroom can really make a big impact on your home. Modern fixtures like a new toilet, new sinks and vanity, perhaps a luxurious rain shower with new tiles can transform this utilitarian room into a wonderful sanctuary.

GENERAL CONTRACTOR FOR YOUR HOME PROJECTS

Work with a trusted and experienced General Contractor so your project is completed on time and within budget

A General Contractor will act as a leader and organizer for the job site – coordinating the efforts of subcontractors and ensuring the entire project is completed according to plan. Usually this will involve making sure all building materials are delivered on time, keeping the workspace organized, hiring the subcontractors and making sure their work is done properly. The General Contractor is also the point of contact between the client and the tradesmen who perform the renovation or project. For over 20 years Budget Construction has been serving as General Contractor for projects big and small in the northwest suburbs of Chicagoland. When seeking a General Contractor, you will want to keep in mind that integrity and business reputation are so important, since they manage and oversee the project from beginning to end.

Managing the chaos of a construction site

A construction site can be a chaotic environment, with many people, equipment, and materials arriving and work being performed on different areas of the home simultaneously. It is the role of the General Contractor to oversee all of the subcontractors to make sure their work is done in the proper order, and also they act as quality control. Additionally, the General Contractor has the deep ties and relationships with area subcontractors to make sure you get high quality work done correctly the first time. Since we have been in business for so long in the area of Arlington Heights and the surrounding suburbs, we have great contacts within the industry that we can deploy and put to work for you and your project.

Fully licensed, insured, and bonded

Usually the project will be done under the licenses and insurance of the general contractor. This means we ensure that all work is performed up to code and up to spec. If any issues do arise our insurance takes over so that you are protected from financial damage. You will want to work with a trusted company with a good reputation for this important work on your home. Budget Construction has built up this great reputation over many years and we are very proud of our standing in the community!

Choose Budget Construction!

For some home improvement or renovation projects it might make sense to hire a General Contractor to oversee the work of several subcontractors. Our deep knowledge of construction, home repair, and home renovation allows us to help you decide which team is right for you and the unique needs of your home. Our friendly, professional and customer service oriented team of consultants is standing by to help advise you on your project or renovation goals. Please contact us today so that we can get started on your project right away! Our experience and deep industry contacts allows us to help your project get done the right way. We offer free consultations and can help you decide if using a General Contractor is the right choice for you and your home. We look forward to earning your business!

BATHROOM REMODELING WITH BUDGET CONSTRUCTION

Transform your vintage bathroom into a modern oasis of comfort and luxury

Even though it might be one of the most-used rooms in your whole house, a bathroom remodel project might not spring to the top of your mind. Many homeowners recognize the value of kitchen remodeling. But a new bathroom can make just as much impact on the feel and experience of living in your home, as well as your guests’ experience! We at Budget Construction have been remodeling bathrooms in the northwest suburbs of Chicagoland for over 20 years. This blog will focus on some of the aspects of the project.

Where to begin?

New toilet/sink? New tile? New color scheme? The choices can be overwhelming! For a project like bathroom remodeling, it really helps to have some experts on your side. That’s where we come in at Budget Construction. Our remodeling consultants are experts at matching up your goals for the room with the possible options out there – working within your budget to create the room of your dreams. One of the first issues is the question of space – are we working within the existing space or opening it out into something larger by removing or relocating some walls. Even if you want to space to be the same size, and the fixtures in more or less the same places, there is still a huge opportunity to modernize and update the feel of the bathroom.

Fixtures!

Modern sinks, showers, Jacuzzi tubs, and toilets offer tremendous variety when it comes to style, size, color, and materials. Really there are too many options to cover in this article, but just consider standing rain showers, multi jet Jacuzzi tubs, water saving efficient modern toilets that use a fraction of the water of the older style ones, and many options for sinks and vanities as well. Our consultants will carefully consider the style of your home as well as the look and feel you are trying to create in your new space. We make suggestions based on these considerations – or, for clients that already know exactly what they want, we just handle the installation and manage the project form beginning to end, finishing on time and under budget!

Color scheme and the overall feel of the room

Different varieties of tile are available for you to choose from for the walls as well as the shower/tub area. The color of your walls and floors will make a big different in the feeling and overall open-ness of the bathroom. Speaking of floors, there are also options for heated floors with radiant or hot-water based heating systems. Imagine replacing those cold winter tile floors with something warm and inviting! Some clients want to open up the room even more with the addition of windows – letting in light and transforming the bathroom into a sanctuary apart from the worry and stress of your day.

Budget Construction is here to help

As you can see, there are so many options and possibilities when it comes to transforming this important room in your home. At Budget Construction, we are standing by to help you through the process, offering our experience and expertise all the way through the construction phase and the completion of your project.

Home Improvement

When you hear the words “Home Improvement,” you might think of the 90’s sitcom if you are of a certain age. But here at Budget Construction Company, we just think of all the many ways your home can get better! There are so many ways to upgrade your home, and many reasons as well. We’ll explore some of these topics during today’s blog.

MAKE YOUR HOME A MORE COMFORTABLE PLACE TO LIVE!

You are in your house every day. Its where you raise your children and eat family meals. It’s also where you take care of more mundane tasks like folding laundry and showering in the morning. The point here is that you and your family are the primary ones to benefit any time you make improvements to your home! Increase daily comfort, convenience, or just freshen up old rooms with a new look. You won’t believe how much some of these changes can improve every minute that your family is at home.

WHERE TO START?

So you’ve decided to improve some aspect of your home, now what? Well, most people will have a room in the house that is not their favorite. For some the kitchen might be cramped. For others the bathroom gets crowded in the morning as several people need to shower at the same time. Maybe you want to add a mud room to your house’s entryway or expand the laundry area. Its great if you have some basic things in mind to help form a plan. Our consultants are experts in helping you come up with your first plan – we can offer suggestions or ideas and give you a trained ear to bounce your creative ideas off of. If you have a larger project in mind such as a big addition or a second floor, we help with structural planning as well.

INCREASE YOUR HOME VALUE

A nice side benefit of home improvement projects is that they can add value to your home! In some cases, the cost of additions, renovations, or other projects can be reflected right in your home’s value. When it comes time to sell your house, the improvements you made can become almost like an investment – your home is worth more because the kitchen was renovated, for example. Of course, every buyer is different, but very often people that view homes or attend open houses care a lot about the state of the kitchen. A modern kitchen, with high-efficiency, attractive new appliances and plenty of space to work are incredibly attractive! Even styles change over time, with well-lit open kitchens being more desirable nowadays. Having a “new” kitchen can go a long way towards helping your home to sell, and for a price that’s right for you!

BUDGET CONSTRUCTION – SECOND FLOOR ADDITION

The ultimate in home renovation, adding a second floor addition is a big project. We have experience and expertise that can only come from correctly completing the project many times over. If you are thinking about adding a second level to your home, look no further than Budget Construction.

Engineering

The first thing we need to look at is the structural support for your new second level. Since your home was not originally built to support a level above the main one, it is likely that some additional support will be needed. This is not a problem as long as you have an experienced team like the one at Budget Construction on your side. We will analyze how best to provide long lasting solid support for your new home.

Systems

Think of all the different systems that all work together to make up your home! Electrical systems need to be expanded to the new level, Plumbing will need to connect everything together, and heating and air conditioning ducts will need to run from the furnace. Depending on how much square footage you are adding, you might even need to upgrade some of these, like your furnace for example. We have the expertise to make recommendations based on our many years of doing these types of projects.

Appearance

At the end of the day, you probably don’t want your new second floor addition to look like it was just slapped on top of your old house! You want it to look like it has always been there. This is where our awesome design team comes in – to help create a seamlessly integrated appearance both inside and out. We will take the look and character of your home and recreate it so that they both match. However, in some cases you actually might want to change the appearance or certain features of your home, and that is no problem too! Once you are embarking on a big project like this, it can be the ideal time to fix or update a few other areas of your home that perhaps you have always wanted to do and now you have the chance.

Square Footage

Well this is probably the main reason people will want to add a second level: it can almost double the square footage of your home! This of course adds lots of value to your property since the total square footage is one of the main thing that buyers tend to be concerned about – “how much space is there?” By consulting our plans we will be able to give you a great idea about how much space your new second floor will provide to your home and your family.
Conclusion

We love big projects at Budget Construction! And more importantly we have the expertise and skill to handle them. So if you are considering adding a second floor addition to your home in the Chicagoland area, give us a call today so we can get this exciting new project off to a great start!

BUDGET CONSTRUCTION – ADDITIONS

So you are ready to add an addition to your home? Congratulations! This is a huge opportunity to completely transform the look, flow, feel, and value of what is probably one of the biggest investments in your life. We don’t want to make the process sound intimidating, but just underline how important it is to work with the right team to ensure the end result is perfect! We have built countless additions for many years and our long list of satisfied customers should be enough to convince anyone that BUDGET CONSTRUCTION is your perfect choice!

Different types of additions

Basically, an addition will add a room or rooms on to your existing house. That sounds pretty simple, but keep in mind that it will also need to be integrated to all of your current systems such as heating/cooling, electrical, and perhaps plumbing as well. The footprint of your house may change, and you will add square footage.

The smaller-scale end of home additions would be adding on a sun-porch or partially extending part of a roof to create a dormer. They can grow in complexity up through room additions and even adding a second floor.

If you are considering an addition for your home and are reading this page, you probably have some idea of what you are looking for. Great! Now you need a team of experts to help walk you through all the various options, guide the plan into the execution stage, and make sure everything comes out as expected at the end. We hope you will consider Budget Construction as your partner in this home addition project. Please scroll through the pictures we have provided on our website that document the many successful projects we have completed over the years. Our expert design team works with your goals and visions to develop an outline that our build team takes from the page/screen into the real world!

Oftentimes our customers will embark on a home addition as part of a kitchen or bathroom renovation. In past blogs we have talked about those subjects and we encourage you to take a look at them as well. In this case you are really creating a whole new room, to add space, light, and functionality – but you still need to seamlessly integrate the whole project into the existing home!

Another aspect to keep in mind with a home addition is you will want it to not only blend seamlessly into your existing home on the inside, but on the outside as well. When viewed from the street, ideally the addition will look like it has always been part of the house. This is an important part that our design team contributes as well – our experience over the years has helped us to make the addition a real part of the home.

We are always excited to discuss home additions with our customers and welcome your questions. The sky really is the limit when it comes to home additions, and the most importance call you can make is to the team who will help you out. Contact Budget Construction today!

BUDGET CONSTRUCTION – BATHROOM REMODELING

When it comes to remodeling or updating rooms in your home, many people would think of doing the kitchen first. This makes good sense as we talked about in our last blog on kitchen remodeling. However, don’t overlook the bathroom! It is very likely one of the most used rooms in your whole house. Gone are the days when people viewed the bathroom as being “just” a utilitarian room. Now we know better, and people are putting more care into creating a great space. We will walk through some of your options and give you some things to think about during your bathroom remodel in this blog. Please reach out to our design consultants to explore even more.

Fixtures

From the sink to the shower and toilet – this room really is all about the fixtures. We can upgrade your bathroom in a huge way without doing a full-on remodel by just installing some new fixtures! There are endless different types of sinks out there – single bown, his and hers, floating glass bowls that seem to float on air, metal, stone, and more. The options are truly endless and our Design Consultants at Budget Constructions really enjoy getting to know you and your style, and making recommendations based on what you might like.

Toilets – well you might think that the standard American porcelain toilet hasn’t changed in decades, but you might be surprised. First of all, modern toilets are more efficient than ever, and take much less water per flush than the old models – which is good for your water bill as well as the environment. You also have more choices than ever when it comes to shape, color, and other features. We carry all the top brands and have one for every style and taste.

Again, you have options when it comes to the shower area. Often times this will depend on available space – if it is limited perhaps a glass-encased shower with an overhead rain showerhead will do nicely. If there is more space available a fully jetted Jacuzzi tub can work! At Budget Construction our design team really gets to know your bathroom and what you want it to look like. There are as many options as there are wonderful customers!

Storage

You want to have some good storage options in the bathroom as well – the medicine cabinet, place for towels and linens, cleaning products, etc. Our design consultants are expert in analyzing the space you have, and giving you the storage you need without making everything look too cluttered. You don’t want your bathroom to look like a locker room, after all! We have many attractive options with it comes to shelves, hutches, over-the-toilet cabinets, and more.

Conclusion

Everyone is always talking about kitchen renovation, and with good reason, but don’t neglect the bathroom! You have an opportunity to create a great space that is actually a joy to be in – whether is starts our your morning in the best possible note, or provides a sanctuary for you to unwind and relax in after a long day. Look at the bathroom as an opportunity, and give us a call so we can explore together how to bring the dream in to reality!

BUDGET CONSTRUCTION – KITCHEN REMODELING

The kitchen really is the engine that drives the rest of your house! Its one of the first things that potential new buyers look for when shopping for a home as well, so its important that your kitchen be one of the stars of your home. We will talk about some of the elements of kitchen remodeling in this blog post – giving you some options to consider and discuss with our Design Team here at Budget Construction.

Countertops

Nothing says “modern luxury” like nice granite countertops. Not only do they look sharp – they are functional as well! Super easy to clean, and about the most durable material available. Set a hot pan down on granite with no fear of scorching or damage to the surface. At Budget Construction we source the highest quality granite so that your kitchen can really look its best. Custom shapes available for islands or any other configuration.

Walls/Layout

Sometimes the space for a kitchen is going to require that the appliances and layout overall be set in a certain way. However, at times it is also possible to knock out walls to really open up the kitchen with lots more space, light, and options as far as configuration and the placing of appliances goes. Our Kitchen Remodeling Experts are skilled in helping your to analyze the space you have available and how to maximize its use and function. We revel in the challenge and customizable features we can bring to any home and kitchen!

Cabinets

There are so many options when it comes to cabinets! Different materials, colors, doors vs. glass, hardware; the options are truly endless. Its great if you have a clear idea about what you want your finished cabinets to look like. However, if you are not quite sure what would look best in your particular home, Budget Construction comes to the rescue again! Our Consultants will take a look at your available space and get an idea of your style and desired endpoint and make recommendations based on that. We have many pictures to show you as well from our long list of past projects that have all come out superb.

Appliances

One of the more low-cost options out there for people looking to upgrade their kitchen but not go through a complete remodel, is to update their appliances. Modern ranges, refrigerators, and dishwashers are vastly superior to older models in their energy usage, efficiency, and of course appearance as well. Stainless steel appliances are highly desired these days – these sleek machines lend clean lines and an element of modernity to any kitchen. And their efficiency and low energy usage may even save you a few dollars on your electric bill!

Conclusion

Upgrading, updating, renovating – whatever you choose to call it, investing in your kitchen is one of the best decisions you can make as a homeowner. It will increase your home’s value overall, but the best part is – you get to use the sparkly new kitchen too! So enjoy your new kitchen, and lets get started by making your dreams a reality with a call to BUDGET CONSTRUCTION.
