Cost vs. Value Report 2019

Each year, Remodeling releases its Cost vs. Value report describing the average return on investment (ROI) for home remodeling projects. Covering 22 remodeling projects and spanning 136 U.S. markets, it’s the go-to resource to find out how a remodel could impact the value of your home.

Often remodeling is done to improve your experience while in your home, not necessarily with selling it in mind. But because remodeling can be a costly decision, it’s helpful to understand the value you could expect to receive from your investment.

We reviewed the 2019 Cost vs. Value report and gathered information about our region to give you an ROI snapshot for some of our most common home remodeling projects:

Cost Vs Value 2019

Bathroom RemodelingBathroom Remodeling

Bathrooms are extremely important rooms in the house, and sometimes remodeling to make them fit your needs is necessary. According to the 2019 Cost vs. Value report, an upscale bathroom remodel is seeing an ROI of 53%.

An upscale remodel might mean expanding an existing 35-square-foot bathroom to 100 square feet and relocating all bathroom fixtures. It could also include installation of stone countertop with dual sinks, compartmentalized commode, and ceramic tiling for the floor.

Kitchen RemodelingKitchen Minor & Major Remodeling

An interesting note for this year’s report is that kitchen remodeling’s ROI is up from 2018. Minor midrange kitchen remodels are seeing an ROI of close to 75% and major upscale kitchen remodels are yielding 58%.

Depending on the state of your current kitchen, you may opt for an upscale kitchen remodel. A 200-square-foot major upscale kitchen remodel could include:

  • Installing stone countertops with ceramic tile backsplash
  • Including appliances such as a wall oven, built in microwave, and commercial-grade cooktop with vent hood
  • Updating cabinetry with 30 linear feet of state-of-the-art custom cabinets with built-in sliding shelves
  • Installing an upscale undermount sink with designer faucets
  • Adding new lighting throughout the entire kitchen

Client Testimonials

Went out of his way to let me know the status of the project each day during construction. really good communication

-Matt M.

We love our new addition. This new room was truly custom built and details match our turn of the century farm house. We enjoyed working with everyone that Chris brought out.

-Christine M.

We hired Chris to finish our basement. His price was good, and he was very honest about the work and the code requirements. What really stands out to me about our experience was how Chris worked with us. We had to make a few changes to our original design due to some utility locations and Chris had a plan and worked to address any issues that came up. I felt the working relationship was excellent. He has beautiful design ideas and made our basement bath more like a spa and was respectful of the budget. I felt it was a nice collaboration! If you want to work with a company that does quality work,has an eye for design at a reasonable price Corey Built is the one!
