Welcome to VanderBeken Remodel, the premier whole home remodeling company in Snohomish County. We understand the importance of creating a visually stunning and highly functional home that perfectly suits your needs. When your current home falls short, we are here to provide the expert assistance you need.
Some home remodeling projects go beyond the traditional definition of kitchens, bathrooms, or additions. These projects encompass a larger scale, including not only kitchens or bathrooms, but also living areas, home offices, master suites, guest bedrooms, basements, garages, outdoor living spaces, or a combination of these spaces. Depending on the project, structural changes may be necessary or it may be a purely cosmetic remodel. We refer to this versatile area of expertise as "whole home remodeling." Our experienced team will guide you through every step of the process, from initial planning and design to the final construction and installation, ensuring that every detail of your remodel is executed with precision.
Answering Your FAQs About Whole Home Remodels
What is Involved with a Whole Home Remodel
Whole house remodels typically involve major structural alterations to one or more rooms of the house. However, the scope of a whole home remodel can be defined in several different ways. A whole house remodel could refer to replacing the kitchen, expanding the primary bedroom and finishing the basement. Alternatively, a whole home remodel could involve adding a bedroom, converting an attic or building a main floor addition.
Whole home remodels can be “gut renovations” where the entire house is taken down to the studs. On the other hand, a whole home remodel could be cosmetic in nature. Both updating faulty electrical wiring to make the house safer and replacing countertops to modernize the space are common in whole home remodels. Either way, a whole house remodel could make your older home feel like a brand-new house.
The ROI of a Whole Home Remodel
While whole home remodels require a significant investment of both time and financial resources, the benefits far outweigh the initial costs. The ability to customize, increase property value, address maintenance concerns, and stay in a desired location make whole home remodels a highly worthwhile endeavor. It is an opportunity for homeowners to create their dream living space, tailored specifically to their needs and preferences, while also reaping the long-term rewards of a well-designed and upgraded home.
The Costs Associated with a Whole Home Remodel
The cost of a whole home remodel varies depending on the specifics of the project. However, a starting budget of at least $250k is recommended for homes in Snohomish County, WA. Factors such as the size of your home and the rooms you choose to remodel will affect the overall cost. For example, a kitchen remodel will be more expensive than a home office or family room remodel due to additional considerations like plumbing and electrical work. The materials and design choices you make will also impact the cost. Our team at Vanderbeken has years of experience managing trade partners, schedules, and budgets to deliver high-quality remodels tailored to your needs.

High ROI Renovations in a Whole Home Remodel
Some of the most common renovations undertaken during a whole home remodel are also those with the greatest ROIs (returns on investment). Of course, not every homeowner updates their property solely to improve its resale value. Many homeowners update their houses to make their living space easier, safer and more enjoyable to live in.
Fixing Faulty Wiring or Plumbing
The ROI on fixing faulty wiring or plumbing is difficult to calculate. However, many mortgage lenders will not release funds or offer financing if a home inspection turns up major electrical or plumbing issues. Certain plumbing and electrical issues render a home unsafe and – in some cases – uninhabitable. While often a huge project, resolving these issues will not only boost your home’s resale value. It will also protect your family and property from injury and damage, respectively.
Replacing Carpet with Hardwood Flooring
For many homes, replacing carpet with hardwood floors delivers an ROI (return on investment) of 70% or higher. ROIs above 80% are not unheard of! Keep in mind that the return on investment new flooring offers will depend heavily on where you live. Your region’s climate might not be the best for hardwood floors.
Updating Old or Broken Windows
Getting rid of broken or leaky windows can make your home look newer and more modern. It can also lower your utility bills. If you ever choose to sell your home, you could benefit from a 70% ROI on window replacement.
Adding a Fresh Coat of Paint
Recent estimates for the ROI of repainting your home’s interior before listing it for sale are as high as 100%. Some actually exceed this 100% estimate. Thoroughly cleaning and repainting your home is one of the easiest ways to update its interior. Not only will a fresh coat of paint attract buyers. It will also make the home feel brighter, newer and – in many cases – more spacious.
Improving the Flow of Your Floor Plan
Many of our clients opt for a whole home remodel because they hope to age in place. Oftentimes, aging in place necessitates certain home improvements like leveling stairs, lowering countertops and widening doorways. By improving the flow of your floor plan, you could also make cleaning and caring for your home much simpler. This is a must-have as you age in place.
Refreshing Your Home’s Exterior
Just as painting the interior of your home could boost its resale value, so could updating its exterior. Dozens of exterior home improvement projects offer incredible returns on investment. Pressure washing the driveway, landscaping with native plants, fixing broken shingles, adding a screened porch and replacing the garage door all add value.
Is a Whole Home Remodel Right for You?
A whole home remodeling project is a serious undertaking. Still, it might be the right fit for you -- especially if you love your home, but it does not fit your lifestyle. Typically, our whole home remodel clients have lived in their home for 10+ years. They have been thinking of and planning for a major remodel for a while. Our clients also have a clear idea about what they want to change in order to make it fit their lifestyle better. Every homeowner considers the return on their investment. However, our clients also consider how their homes can better meet their needs now.
It seems advantageous to gut your whole place and do all of the remodeling at once. Unfortunately, if you do not have another home to live in or a generous relative to stay with, this can seriously disrupt your life. If this is the case, we often recommend you tackle your whole house renovation project in phases. That allows for certain parts of the home to remain livable, while other portions are being remodeled. An added perk: you will have at least one usable bathroom at all times.
