Frequently Asked Questions About Home Remodeling in The Woodlands Area

I'm on a pretty tight budget, is there any way we can remodel our master bath affordably?

Absolutely. Our The Woodlands remodeling contractors are great at coming up with creative solutions for bathroom remodeling. We work within your budget and are just as happy to take on smaller projects as we are the complete home makeovers. There's no reason you can't have a beautiful, comfortable bathroom at an affordable price with a little creative effort.

I don't like construction mess, can you keep it to a minimum?

Yes, we always strive to keep a clean, uncluttered job site that won't disrupt your family or your business operations. Of course, there will be construction going on, but we always do our best to accommodate your needs.

Can you handle an entire renovation for my historical home?

We have renovated many beautiful historic homes in the The Woodlands and Greater Houston area, inside and out. Our team of remodeling contractors includes specialists in plastering and moldings, masonry, painting, electrical, plumbing, and more who provide high quality historically accurate home remodeling services.

We don't like the layout of our kitchen, are you able to fix that during remodeling?

We provide full-service kitchen remodeling which includes providing you with a new floorplan and moving the plumbing, lighting, outlets, and everything else necessary. Your kitchen should flow and have enough space. If we need to borrow space by knocking down a wall or build one to accommodate the floorplan, we can get it all done! We can even raise the roof and put in skylights if you like.

What is a general contractor?

When you begin planning a construction project, you’ll quickly realize how many different specialists are required to complete the work, such as a flooring contractor, cabinetry specialist, plumber, electrician, and more.

A general contractor hires and organizes all the different teams required to complete your project. Capital K Contractors has both an in-house team and a number of specialist subcontractors, all of whom have proven themselves to stand by our values of honest hard work and integrity.

What does a general contractor do?

As your general contractor, we will perform a range of tasks. During the initial consultation and planning phase, we will work with architects and blueprints to help you settle on the design and materials you want.  During the building phase, we play both the role of highly skilled craftspeople and the role of managing subcontractors.

How does a general contractor prepare an estimate?

Our estimates are calculated based on:

  • Type, quality, and quantity of materials required
  • Labor required to complete the project
  • Specialist subcontractors
  • Overall size and scope of the project
  • Duration of the project

With this information, we’ll draft an accurate quote that stays within your budget.

Are you insured?

Yes! Every member of our team and every subcontractor we employ is fully insured. We take every precaution to limit your personal liability while we’re on the job.

Are you licensed?

Yes, we are proud to be a licensed general contracting company with a broad range of certifications.

Does my construction job need a permit?

It depends on the size and type of job. The best thing to do is to call us and speak to one of our experts. In almost every case, we will apply for the proper building permits for you. This is one of the main benefits of hiring a general contractor.

As a side note, we take great care to stay updated on all recent changes to local building code regulations. It is important to us—for our reputation, licensing, and our client’s safety—that everything we do is compliant with local guidelines.

At what point in the planning should I hire a general contractor?

It really depends on the type of project you’re pursuing. If you’re working on a home addition or new construction (residential or commercial) that requires an architectural blueprint, it’s best to get that organized first. We have lots of experience working with drafters and architects directly, as well as with their technical plans.

If your project doesn’t require architectural plans, then it’s best to get us on the job right away. It’s much easier and more efficient to see a project through from beginning to end than to start somewhere in the middle of someone else’s work.

How do I find out how much my project will cost?

Give us a call and speak to an expert. Once we sit down with you to sort out the details and construction schedule, we’ll be in a good place to determine your cost of general contracting services.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
