Are you insured?
RēˈFərbish Group INC. is covered by a $2,000,000 General Liability policy. This is critical for you, the homeowner, as damage caused by a contractor to your home may not be covered by your home insurance.
Are you bonded?
Bonding (also known as a “Surety Bond”) is important if a contractor requests any money, such as a deposit, up front, or before the job is finished. A contractor pays to acquire the bond and leverages against their assets, to provide a guarantee for the consumer. RēˈFərbish Group INC. is secured with a $25,000.00 Surety Bond — the amount required in Alberta to be licensed as a prepaid contractor.
Are you licensed?
RēˈFərbish Group INC. is licensed with the province of Alberta as a prepaid contractor and with the City of Calgary and the City of Airdrie. Our provincial license requires RēˈFərbish to be bonded (as described above) and the City of Calgary and City of Airdrie conducts routine criminal background checks on all owners/directors of companies that apply for a license. Strict licensing rules help homeowners avoid fraudulent contractors.
What should we budget?
During renovations, we often discover issues in the walls, floor, or ceiling that need to be addressed. In these situations, we meet with homeowners to explain the issue and propose a solution. You should plan for an additional 10 to 20 percent of the following project budgets to cover any unforeseen issues.
For a kitchen renovation, clients should budget a minimum of $25,000.00 and up depending on the size of the space. This does not include appliances, and your material selections and the size of the space will influence the budget. It is easy to spend roughly around $50,000 on a kitchen with flooring, appliances and so on.
For a bathroom renovation, clients should budget a minimum of $10,000.00 for a main bathroom and $18,000.00 for a master ensuite, plus GST. As with kitchens, your material selections and the size of the space will influence the budget.
Basement renovations are one of the most popular projects for newer homes in the Calgary area. In the Calgary area, low-end basement developments start around $45 per square foot. These are often called “Builders Grade” and are basic. High-end Basement Developments will cost around $75 per square foot and higher.
Most projects we work on fall in this range. It all depends on what is included in the scope of work. Framing out a few rooms and installing carpet will be much less labour compared to heating upgrades, extra bathrooms, or other extras.
Other upgrades include recessed pot lighting, audio/video, or feature walls. You can also expect to pay more with upgrades to the finishing work. Any quotes presented to you should be broken down so you can choose the options you want.
Whole home renovations, new builds, and additions are large projects that require personal consultation for an accurate estimate. No two projects are alike, so each project is reviewed thoroughly before estimates are provided.
Can you create plans or drawings?
Working with a designer or architect is incredibly helpful when pricing a project, and it ensures that everyone has a shared understanding of the project’s scope. We offer in-house design services but not architectural, and we would be happy to recommend an architect, and to consult with them during the planning phase to help keep your project costs under control.
