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

The Cascade Team 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 of our list of estimated costs for hundreds of repairs/upgrades.

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.
