In 2019, the number of Baby Boomers deciding to age in place instead of moving is on the rise. In fact, fewer U.S. homeowners moved in 2019 than ever before.
For baby boomers who plan to age in place for retirement, remodeling the family home and turning it into an empty nester’s paradise is fast becoming the new retirement plan.
This makes interviewing and selecting a qualified home improvement contractor to do the work is a critical first step in moving toward retirement. Boomers may want to consider hiring a company like Allan Home Unlimited who uses the design-build method of remodeling.
Here are the 3 major advantages of a design-build remodeler:
- Singular Responsibility. With both design and construction in the hands of a single company, there is a single point of responsibility for quality, architectural oversight, cost and scheduling.
- Quality Assurance. With only one company responsible for designing and building your project, the focus is on quality and proper project performance. The Design-Builder agrees to produce design documents that are complete and free from error. By contrast, the “traditional” design-bid-build method, the homeowner assumes this responsibility. Under this traditional approach, the quality of the project can be compromised, sometimes relying on the legal system to resolve issues.
- Cost Savings. By working as a team, design and construction personnel, can efficiently and cost-effectively evaluate alternative materials and building methods. This saves you money and improves project efficiency.
