Will any patios need to be removed or added during the house remodeling project?

Here is a list of projects that may require permits. Are you dreaming of a new outdoor living space? Will it require a permit from your city or county government? For many homeowners, building permits can be confusing and time-consuming. The fact that building regulations and departments can vary from place to place further complicates the process. At Archadeck of Raleigh-Durham, processing permits is a standard part of the service we offer.

We understand how different local government entities regulate construction projects throughout the Triangle and we know how to ensure what is needed. While permits may seem overwhelming, their goal is to provide protection to the environment and to you by setting a certain standard of quality and safety for the structure and land you live on. These rules protect you, people who visit your home, and future buyers.

If you list your house for sale, it is very likely that the lending bank will not grant you the loan if it discovers that the remodeling works were carried out without obtaining the necessary permits. How much you recover from your investment will depend on the value of your home, the value of the homes in your immediate neighborhood, the real estate market you live in, how long it will take to sell it after making the improvements, and the quality of the project itself. That's not to say granite countertops and steam showers aren't worth it; kitchen and bathroom remodels are still two of the best investments you can make in your home. In the most thriving real estate markets, remodeling a kitchen or bathroom is a safe investment, since it often recovers more than 100 percent of the cost.

It also doesn't make sense to renovate your kitchen if your house is the only one in the neighborhood with only one bathroom.
