Exterior: Windows, siding options, roofing, tuckpointing, doors.
Interior: Painting, appliances, countertops, tiling, carpeting, lighting
Additions: Creating entirely new rooms or repurposing existing spaces (basements, attics, etc.)
Fixtures: New door hinges, handles, shelving, faucets, etc.
What is a typical Sunshine Contracting remodeling/improvement job down payment?
The wide variety of home improvement jobs means there will be a wide variety of “typical” down payments. For instance, a roofing job may require more time and more expensive material than, say, installing a new kitchen countertop. But as a rule, 25 to 33 percent is an average remodeling job down payment. Making a down payment is a good idea for both the customer and the contractor. The customer can ease the financial burden of paying for the job by making smaller payments rather than one lump sum and the contractor can begin buying the supplies needed to complete the job. If possible, the contractor and the customer should divide payment for the project into four installments and base them on completion milestones.
