Hi Everyone! I am Leo Bander and together with my team of dedicated remodeling experts we run RemodelingCalculator.org, and our YouTube DIY channel dedicated to EVERYTHING it takes to make your dream home a reality.
Remodeling Calculator Team likes to tackle all interior and exterior renovation projects from a down to earth perspective.
Our goal is to provide you with user-friendly estimating tools, as well as accurate information on the most current prices for popular remodeling materials, products and installation work.
But, that is not all! Remodeling Calculator is also full of expert remodel cost guides and renovation design tips that will help you get the best value out of all your house remodeling pursuits.
Professional Qualifications In Construction Fields
I’ve been a contractor since 2003, specializing in:
– Residential & commercial roof installation (shingles, metal, low slope and flat roofs)
– Siding (vinyl, wood, fiber cement)
– General Contracting (GC)
– HVAC, oil & gas heating installations
– Electrical work
– Builder, etc.
I also have formal Solar PV installation training & hold an electrician’s training certificate, so technically I could work as Electrician apprentice in a master license track (but I don’t have time for that).
As of late, my primary focus has shifted from roofing to HVAC + Solar PV. I am just too passionate about green energy to “waste time climbing the ladder” 🙂
Homeowner Needs Are Our Top Priority
I am also a homeowner, and like most homeowners, I either cannot or prefer not to do the work myself (some projects – primarily drywall and plastering). So like you, I look for the best deals on home improvement, and research what is a “fair price” for remodeling projects.
To help fellow homeowners, together with my team, I do the research for you and publish Remodeling Cost Guides, Material and Manufacturer reviews, etc.
Our Remodeling Cost Calculators
Based on my experience, professional connections and ongoing research, I have designed easy to use, online estimation tools that help homeowners calculate the costs for the most popular interior and exterior remodeling and repair projects.
These remodeling calculators will yield near 90% accuracy when you provide correct inputs. Some factors that affect pricing accuracy are:
– local economic conditions
– the contractor you are getting quotes from
– quality of materials
– job difficulty
We also publish an annual Remodeling Price List that includes the most current pricing for the majority of construction and remodel projects.
Where We Get Our Price Data
By being actively involved in construction and remodeling industry for over 20 years, I’ve learned how contractors in most trades price their work. I am also in regular contact with my peers, thanks to online forums for contractors, such as Contractor Talk, Roofing.com, etc.
Moreover, staying up to date with multiple studies and surveys put out by the remodeling industry I am able to gather accurate data about regional differences in the cost of professional contractor labor.
The cost estimates used in our Remodeling Calculators are an aggregate of input from hundreds of pros across the US as well as rigorous pricing research that is regularly updated.
