Q:HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO REMODEL MY KITCHEN OR BATHROOM?
The price for a new kitchen or bathroom will be affected by (1) where you buy it (2) what features it includes and (3) the brands/models you select. For kitchens, pricing can range from $10,000 to as much as $75,000 and higher. On average, a kitchen will cost from $15,000 – $26,000, including design, products and installation. Bathroom prices generally average between $7,500 and $15,000 when you’re replacing everything. Again, the cost can be lower or considerably higher depending on what you’re looking for.
Bathroom remodeling ranks with kitchen remodeling as one of America’s most popular major home improvements. Wetherington Restoration and Remodeling specializes in any size remodel of the kitchen, bathroom, or any room in your home.
Q:WHAT MAKES A KITCHEN MORE OR LESS EXPENSIVE?
Cabinets account for about half the total cost of the project and will have the greatest impact on your budget. They range in price considerably based on quality, the type of material they are made of, and whether they are stock (ready made in specific sizes) or custom (produced specifically for your kitchen in whatever sizes are needed). The other big expense may be in solid surface counter tops, such as granite or quartz.
Water Damage Questions:
Q:HOW DO I DETERMINE HOW MUCH WATER DAMAGE MY HOME MY HAVE?
It is very hard to determine the extent of water damage. Only professionals can determine the full degree of water damage and where it has affected. Sometimes it can exist in the walls, behind cabinets, and underneath floors. There are special meters and instruments that help find hidden water and sources of the problem. Once the source is found specialized equipment can be used for the drying process.

Q:HOW QUICKLY SHOULD THE WATER BE REMOVED?
As soon as possible. The faster the origin of the problem is found, the less damage that will result. If water is left for any length of time microbial growth can begin to form and grow. Once microbial growth begins, remediation becomes an additional step to repair the damage. So the quicker the water can be extracted and the drying process starts, it helps to lessen the amount and costs of damages.
Q:WHAT IS SO DANGEROUS ABOUT MOLD?
Mold is mainly dangerous to your health because it could cause light allergic reactions to serious illness. It is more dangerous to infants, children, elderly people, pregnant women, and people with respiratory diseases, a weakened immune system, and those who suffer from allergies. The common reactions to mold are nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, shortness of breath, wheezing, and in rare cases, mold infections. Living in an area with high mold count could result in chronic respiratory conditions.
Q:WHERE DOES MOLD GROW?
Microbial growth can be found everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Usually, mold is found in damp areas, such as the kitchen or bathroom, as well as in the outdoor environment in grass, leaf piles, hay, and mulch. Microbial growth usually results in home because of some type of leak which causes standing water that goes undetected or ignored.
