When it comes to large projects like remodeling or building an addition for your home, choosing the right contractor becomes especially important. Not only do you want to put your home’s renovation in the hands of someone who is capable and trustworthy, you want to hire a contractor who is respectful, considerate, and accommodating.
During a remodeling or addition project, your contractor will spend a lot of time in your home and around your property. For this reason, you want to make sure your contractor is someone you can get along with and will go the extra mile to make you and your family are happy, comfortable, and informed throughout the duration of the process. Your contractor should take care of cleaning and repairs and handle any concerns that arise over the course of the project. A quality contractor should run an organized ship in order to complete your project in an efficient manner, so your family can resume normal life and begin enjoying the new living space as soon as possible. A good Sacramento home remodel contractor should go above and beyond your expectations, bringing creativity, craftsmanship, and innovation to your project.

SACRAMENTO HOME REMODEL VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
TITLE: The Full Construction Process for a Home Remodel & Addition
WORDS ON THE SCREEN:
North Atlanta Rear Addition with New and Expanded Kitchen: A Project Pictorial.
The Home Before.
The remodel and addition provided the following:
A large chef’s kitchen suitable for more than one cook as well as entertaining large groups, fitted with high-end appliances, cabinetry, stone, tile, and kid-friendly conveniences.
An informal eating area still fitting for entertaining that is able to seat many yet leave space for traffic flow.
A comfortable and classic living room/den appropriate for family movie nights or a book club meeting, including a fireplace with custom cabinetry that would complement the kitchen, and be the centerpiece of the room.
The early stages:
Walls come down, trash piles up. This is always the least glamorous part of the renovation project.
AK ensures our clients only live with this stage for a very short time! Our project managers are on the scene to keep the renovation moving.
All necessary materials are preordered so their delivery coincides with the correct state of construction—precisely.
The new rooms begin to take shape:
The framing stage is incredibly important! Especially in this house—the entire family room was pre-wired for seamless surround sound and a flat screen TV above the fireplace.
The latest in house wrap, insulation, windows, and siding were used in this addition.
A 650 Square Foot Addition!
The Home After.
The stunning end results – Kitchen:
Spice pullouts, rollout drawers, and a pantry pullout give this relatively small wall of cabinetry the ultimate in function and storage.
The dovetailed drawers with soft close full extension glides are just another unseen detail that illustrates the commitment to quality.
The metered use of light rail, batten-scribe, and fillers show the superiority of the design.
Decorative end panels, cabinetry panels on the dishwasher, refrigerator, and ice-maker show the extreme attention to detail that provided the owners with the seamless look they wanted!
Due to the space available for the new kitchen, wall cabinets were relatively few in number. This meant that the large new island would have to be designed with special adaptations to store items normally found in wall cabinets.
Things such as plates and cups were fitted to be stored in the multiple large drawer bases equipped with customized racks. The sheer fact that the island was multiple heights, with new electrical and plumbing run to it, structural supports and appliances incorporated into it—all while looking delicate on its beautiful furniture base was a miracle of design.
The stunning end results—Family Room:
The mood and design of the kitchen effortlessly flows into the family living room.
The oyster cabinetry with matching crown molding with rope inset, the granite tops and pulls… all represented in this space.
The tumbled stone backsplash seems to have been replaced by a stone fireplace and hearth; a masterpiece which once again hides a secret detail.
The chimney and flu were designed around the plasma television so that it could be installed flush with the walls around it.
Have any of your previous contractors or remodeling firms put this much thought, planning, and creativity into your projects?
