How Much Does It Cost to Renovate My Home on LI?

Have you been thinking about a home renovation? Whether it’s a large, full home renovation or a smaller, re-do of a few rooms, one of the most common questions we are asked is, “How much will it cost to renovate my home on Long Island, New York?”.

Here is a simple way to calculate the approximate cost of a full house renovation. This two-step process involves calculating the square footage of your home and then determining the cost per square foot for the renovation. Here's a summary:
Step 1: Calculating Square Footage • Measure each room's length and width in your home using a tape measure.
• Calculate the square footage of each room by multiplying the length and width.
• Add up the square footage of all rooms to get the total square footage.
• If you have existing plans for your home, you can use those to determine square footage as well.

Step 2: Determining Cost Per Square Foot • Contact local contractors and ask them for the average cost per square foot for a full house renovation in your area.
• Specify the level of finish you desire, as costs can vary depending on the quality of materials and finishes.
• Multiply the total square footage by the cost per square foot to get a ballpark estimate of your renovation cost.

The cost of a full renovation in Long Island, NY, can vary depending on several factors, including the level of finish and the size of the project. The cost typically ranges from $200 to $300 per square foot for a full house renovation. However, for the purposes of the following example, we will use an estimate of $250 per square foot. Here's how you can calculate the cost of a full house renovation:
1. Determine the square footage of the house.
2. Multiply the square footage by the estimated cost per square foot.
For example, if your house has 2,000 square feet:
1. 2,000 square feet x $250 per square foot = $500,000
So, in this example, a full house renovation would cost approximately $500,000 with a mid-level finish. It's important to note that this is a rough estimate, and the actual cost of a renovation can vary based on a variety of factors, including the specific work to be done, the materials used, labor costs, and any unforeseen issues that may arise during the renovation process.

Additionally, the estimate provided in the example is also applicable to additions, as these numbers can be interchangeable. The cost of an addition will depend on its size and complexity, and you can use the same cost per square foot estimate to get a rough idea of how much an addition might cost in your area.

This method provides a rough estimate to give you an idea of how much a full or partial house renovation might cost. However, it's essential to get detailed quotes from contractors for your specific project to obtain a more accurate figure.
