Frequently Asked Questions

As a leading contractor in the metro Washington, DC area, we have received many questions about our services over the years, and here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs):

Most renovations will add value to your home and increase its potential selling price in the future, but don’t expect to earn back all the money you spent. According to Remodeling Magazine, a limited kitchen remodel can earn back up to 84% or your investment, while a major one may only earn 59%. Bathroom remodels may earn back only about 70% of your investment, while replacing a garage door can earn back 97%. Refreshing your entryway is an easy project that has a 67% return, and replacing your drafty windows with efficient vinyl alternatives can offer a return of 82%. A deck can offer an attractive 82% of your investment.

Absolutely. Research the projects you wish to complete and explore your finances thoroughly. Consider upper and lower limits for your budget before sitting down with a contractor, and plan for unexpected expenses. At Optimum Construction, we can help you determine a realistic budget, and we will work diligently to stay within it.

That all depends on the size and scope of the project. A small bathroom remodel may only take a few weeks, while a kitchen remodel may take a month or more. Plan several months for a large remodel like a basement, or up to a year for whole-home remodels or a large addition.

For interior projects, any time of the year will work well. For exterior remodels or additions, spring, summer, and fall work best, as winter can present challenges like frozen soil or poor working conditions. However, at Optimum Construction, we work year-round and plan accordingly for the weather.

Any renovation project will disrupt your home-life somewhat, but at Optimum Construction, we strive to limit them. We will take steps to minimize messes, such as cleaning the work area nightly and using negative air pressure to contain the dust.
