FAQs

You’ve Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers!

Everyone has questions about the remodeling process. Some people have experienced building their own home, but having a remodeling job site in your own home is a different story. Check out the FAQs below on how the remodel will affect your life and other questions you may not have thought about.

What if I need to cancel my appointment?
Just give us a call at our office number, 479.621.0565 and we can re-schedule an appointment that better suits your needs.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Janacek Remodeling gladly accepts checks, cash and most major credit cards (additional fees may apply).
How long does it take a room addition to complete?
This is a great question that we are often asked. Room additions vary based on the complexity of the addition (kitchen and bathroom or a simple office). A small addition (400 sqft) may take 8-10 weeks, while a large addition, (1,500 sqft) could take 6-8 months.
Do your projectS stay on budget of go over/under?
Janacek Remodeling prefers to provide solidly priced bids on most all of our projects. The “pros/cons” of this are worth considering. Our price may be higher than other contractors, but at least you know exactly what you will be paying instead of just “writing checks until it’s done”.

In short, we stay on budget with every project. Clients are free to make changes to projects at any time and a Change Order will be executed to help the client better understand what additional costs may be incurred by their changes. Rarely needed, but a possibility for cost overage on a contract price would be for “unforeseen” repairs needed, such as rot or insect damage.

Cost plus Contracts are another way to allow Owners maximum flexibility while still monitoring the weekly costs of the project. Handyman projects and other minor repairs are often charged by the hour.

What about my pets?
Janacek Remodeling does our best to help keep your family pets inside their protected cage or fenced area. If a room addition or back porch remodel requires removing fences, we can install temporary fencing to help keep your pets safe.
Who will be working on my home?
Janacek Remodeling employs a variety of individuals who we like to refer to as “Jack-of-all-trades”. Our employees are capable of handling most all aspects of your remodeling projects. When a specific task is outside of our scope of abilities, or could be done much faster, we will incorporate “Trade Partners” into the project who will help complete the project to your satisfaction. We believe in using the right people for the job, not necessarily the cheapest.
How long does it take for a bathroom or kitchen remodel to complete?
Due to their nature, bathrooms and kitchens can sometimes take longer than expected. If the cabinets are custom built, we often have to wait for them to be designed and built. Often, we try to wait until the cabinets are completely built before even starting the job. Sometimes this is not always possible. Countertops are another area than can often take 2-4 weeks to fabricate and may cause “dead days” in the project. If the faucets or other plumbing fixtures need to be ordered, additional delays can sometimes be expected. Simple bathroom remodels can usually be completed in a 6-8 week time frame. Kitchen Remodels are usually 8-12 weeks.
