During the process of buying or selling a home, your clients often learn about recommended or required repairs and upgrades. This can happen as a result of the home inspection as well as your expert knowledge of your market and comparable homes. Of course, the first thing homeowners want to know is, How much will that cost?

Pillar to Post is pleased to offer our Residential Construction and Remodeling Estimates cost guide, which provides estimated cost ranges for repair and/or replacement of the major systems and components in a home. It also includes general guidelines for the life expectancies of those systems. This information can help your clients make informed decisions when they're considering home repairs or improvements, and is especially valued by homeowners before their property is listed. Below is just a sampling of our list of estimated costs for hundreds of repairs/upgrades. 

Hardwood Floor Refinish $2-$5 / sq. ft
Carpet-clean $100 / room
Ceramic Tile $5-$10 / sq. ft
Renovation $7,500
Counter-laminate $40 / lin. ft
Kitchen counter-marble $75 / lin. ft
Alarm System $2,500
Alarm Monitoring $30 / month
Pressure Treated $15-$25 /sq. ft
Custom Designed & Built $50-$75 / sq. ft.
Skylight $750 and up
Thermal Glass (existing frame) $30 / sq. ft.

These estimates reflect the average basic costs for supplies and installation of building materials in United States and Canada. Costs may vary depending on regions, upgrades, complexity, and disposal fees.
