Does every remodeling job need a permit?
Building codes vary by city, county and state and the requirements vary, but a permit is usually required when structural work is being performed or when changing the living area of a home. A professional who works in your city or town every day will know to obtain local requirements. As a general guideline, the only remodeling jobs that do not require a permit are wall coverings, floor coverings and minor repairs.

What is the difference between a remodeler and a builder who decides to also do remodeling?
A professional remodeler devotes business operations to the business of remodeling homes. This experience means that:

  • A remodeler understands how to work with existing structures.
  • A remodeler understands how to complete a renovation as though the home were originally built the way it appears, not altered.
  • A remodeler understands your concerns and fears about remodeling and knows what it's like to work around a homeowner who may be living in the home during the process.
  • A remodeler's vendors and subcontractors also understand how to work with a homeowner in their own home and will behave as though they are a guest, respecting your property and taking care to protect your home while they are performing work.

As a professional remodeling firm, The Lykos Group, Inc. focuses our efforts on creating a seamless remodeling process, resulting in a finished project that adds value and enjoyment to your home by completing a renovation that exceeds your expectations.

Who will be assigned as project supervisor for the job?
