Message from The President – Great Northern Builders Blog

Warmest of spring greetings from Great Northern Builders!  Spring is always eagerly anticipated in New England, but this year, it holds even greater promise, as we look forward to having more individuals vaccinated against COVID 19, and making some progress towards pre-pandemic normalcy.  

At Great Northern, we have spent the winter months designing and executing several remodeling projects locally.  Multi-generational living, Aging In Place/Universal Design, kitchen and master bath remodels, additions and custom barns and garages remain the core of our work in the community.  

As some of you may know, Len and I have both evolved in our roles at GNB in 2021.  Len’s title is now Founder.  As company founder, Len remains the creative force behind our designs, our Sales Manager, and mentor to our team.  I have moved into the role of President, overseeing human resources, project process, and client relations.  Len has always been the creative guy, and I am a system and process person.  In assuming these new titles, it allows both of us to dwell in our areas of strength.  This is something Len and I have been working towards for a few years and we are both excited about the opportunity. 

Professional growth and continuing education has been a priority team-wide this winter.  Our project managers recently completed Project Management training via the National Association of Home Builders, and the whole field crew renewed their lead-safety certification.  We also continue to grow and develop our relationships with our trade partners, taking good care of them so they in turn can take good care of our clients. 

While we have continually worked to deliver larger projects on time and on budget, we have also been able to maintain excellent value for our clients.  Our family run, small sized company has kept it’s overhead lean and has found a sustainable volume and company size that allows us to deliver a consistent output of successfully completed projects at an efficient rate (hint: the pre-construction process helps!).  Great Northern provides Design/Build/Remodel under one roof, and guides its clients through our proven process.  We take care of the details, you enjoy the results!

How Much Does It Cost To Renovate A House?

A low-end, basic whole house remodel costs $16,000-48,000, depending on the size of the house. This usually involves cosmetic updates and minor repairs, inexpensive lighting and floor replacement, as well as light landscaping.

A mid-range home renovation costs anywhere from $48,000 – 75,000. This type of remodel can include a full bathroom and kitchen remodel, some exterior updates, such as new siding, together with using higher-end building and finishing materials.

A high-end remodel costs as much as $85,000-200,000+. These upscale projects involve lay – out changes, all new expensive kitchen cabinetry and appliances, updated plumbing, electric and HVAC systems, as well as new roof, siding, etc.

Currently, most remodeling costs are up about 5-10%, compared to last year. This is due to the increased material costs, as well as shortage of qualified labor. Roof replacement costs have been pretty stable over the past 10 years, increasing very slightly at a rate of about 1% per year.

Also, keep in mind that remodeling prices may vary by as much as 20-30% or more. This will depend on such factors as:

– the contractor you hire and local labor rates
– type of finishing materials used (budget vs. mid-range vs high-end; custom vs. stock)
– existing house conditions
– unexpected problems discovered during the course of the remodel, such rot, mold or water damage
– your geographic location
– accessibility issues
– type of property (rental, condo, private home, historic building)

The most expensive and labor intensive remodels are the kitchen, bathroom, finishing the basement or the attic. Full remodels of these rooms typically involve both plumbing and electric work, which drives up the total cost.

You can use our Remodeling Costs Calculator to quickly and accurately estimate how much you will spend on renovations in your home.

Remodeling Cost Per Square Foot

Typically, renovating a home costs $15 – 75 per square foot. However, this price can go up to as much as $120-200 per square foot depending on the project and scope of work.

Home Improvement Costs For HVAC / Heating / Cooling

This section covers every aspect of heating and cooling your home, installing Central Air systems, Air Ducts, Radiators, Ductless Mini-Splits, etc.

All HVAC equipment must be properly sized to operate at optimal efficiency. Undersized equipment may not deliver enough cool/warm air, whereas oversized equipment will deliver too much cool/warm air, using too much electricity, oil or gas.

We recommend using our HVAC Heat Load (BTU) calculator, to estimate accurate size for your heating/cooling equipment.

PRO TIP Many homeowners are confused by the heating/cooling equipment names and compatibility. Here is a quick clarification:

1) Central Air system consists of a Central AC and Hot Air Furnace. One cools the air, and another one heats it up. Both work together to keep your house comfortable. Both require ductwork (air ducts) to be already installed in your home to deliver cool/warm air from a central location to all the rooms in your house.

2) Boiler is used for heating only, and works by pushing hot water through radiators (located inside your rooms), to warm up the area. Some boilers, like Navien, have integrated tankle
ss water heater, so it heats up the house, and make hot water on demand.

3) Water Heater is exactly what the name implies – it heats up the water, so you can take showers, wash dishes, etc.

4) Ductless heat pump also known as Mini-split system, can be use as an all-in-one AC and heating device. These very efficient HVAC systems do not need ducts to condition your rooms, but only work in one area (zone). Cool / warm air is deceived into your room by an Air Handler (indoor unit). Many ductless systems come in multi-zone configurations, and have many different types of indoor units (wall-mounted, floor-mounted, concealed ceiling cassette, and even a small duct, which can be hidden in the attic, and condition multiple small rooms via short ducts.

Central AIR (AC + Furnace) $6,980-$9,603 (labor and materials) This price includes a 14 SEER 3.5 TON Central AC + 80000 BTU, 96% efficient Gas Furnace. Price includes a drop-in installation of AC compressor, AC coil, Furnace, gas, line-set & electrical connections. This price assumes that you already have air-ducts & gas lines in your house, an existing 240V electrical connection outside, and copper line-set installed.

Installing new copper lines will cost about $390.

Installing new 40-60A, 240V electric circuit will cost additional $500.

Central AC System $4,390 – $6,040 (labor and materials) This price includes a 13 SEER, 3.5 TON central AC – condenser, coil, electric & line-set connection and drop-in installation.

Upgrading to a 16 SEER central AC will cost additional $1300, and will save and will save 18% in operating (electric) costs annually.

Central HEAT PUMP AC $6,850 – $9,860 (labor and materials) This price includes a 16 SEER, 3.5 TON Central Heat Pump AC (heating in temps above 35F degrees) – condenser, coil, electric & line-set connection and drop-in installation. For “emergency” lower temperature heating, an electric heater is usually added for a cost of $180-$250. Ideal for warmer climates. If you live in colder climates, it is recommended to go with “dual-fuel” setup: Central Heat Pump + Gas Furnace.

Upgrading from 16 SEER to 18 SEER Central Heat Pump will cost additional $2300, and will save 11-12% in operating (electric) costs annually.

Central HEAT PUMP + FURNACE $10,160 – $14,607 (labor and materials) This price includes a drop-in installation 16 SEER, 3.5 TON Central Heat Pump AC and 96% AFUE, 80K BTUs Furnace (Gas only), with dual-fuel smart switching between Heat Pump and Gas heating, depending on outside temperature.

Upgrading from 16 SEER to 18 SEER, will cost additional $2430, and will save 11-12% in operating (electric) costs annually.

Ductless Mini Split AC (Heat Pump) – 12000 BTU – 1 Zone $3,500 – $4,000 (Labor + Materials) Price includes installation a 12000 BTU Mitsubishi M-Series (23.1 SEER) Ductless Mini-Split AC / Heating systems with one indoor unit and one outdoor condenser, checking line-set (up to 50 feet) for leaks and filling with refrigerant (R410A), as well as doing all necessary electrical connections.

Each additional zone with 12K BTU will cost about $3000 extra.
