Remodel Services

Whole Home and Addition Remodeling

You love your home’s location and neighborhood, but the house is outdated or needs more space. What do you do? You can move, but you might have to leave the area, and moving has many hidden costs and risks. Many times, a whole-house remodel is the best solution.

With a whole-house remodel, you can make your home larger, reconfigure the layout, and change the look a little or dramatically. When looking into a whole house remodel, it is also the perfect time to consider an addition. You can expand and restore existing rooms and add entirely new spaces, all while upgrading surfaces, floors, lighting, countertops, and heating and cooling systems to make your home work for you.

Remodeling also allows you to do things you may not be able to do if you are building a new home—because of zoning, building codes, and how grandfathering of major-remodeled homes is handled in any given jurisdiction.

Whole-house remodels often take more know-how and better planning and project management than other types of remodeling projects, which is why our employees are all highly trained professionals that will make the project as easy as possible for you. All while keeping consistent contact to ensure you are updated as your project progresses.

Kitchen Remodeling

Northern Michigan kitchens are truly the heart of the home. Whether your home is on one of the many lakes (Burt Lake, Crooked Lake, Walloon Lake, Lake Michigan), or in one of our quaint towns (Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Bay Harbor, Charlevoix) you undoubtedly host numerous guests and making the most of your kitchen just makes sense. Not only is the kitchen the center of a home but it is also one of the most important selling attributes. Updating a kitchen with a fresh design can make a house more attractive to potential buyers. Whether you are contemplating selling your house or staying in it for the foreseeable future, your kitchen is one of the best places to make an investment. Whether you are looking for a large contemporary space for gourmet meals, a small traditional cottage kitchen or something in between, we have creative solutions and best practices to help you achieve your dream kitchen.

Bathroom Remodeling

The bathroom is one of the most used areas in your home and should be designed carefully, with your comfort in mind. McBride Remodeling walks through a strategic bathroom planning session with each client to create a list of needs and a plan to achieve them with minimum disruption and maximum luxury.

Tackling a project of any magnitude with a strategic plan helps to ensure the end results match the original goal. We commit to this process with all of our clients because we know that it ultimately saves money and time and increases satisfaction.

Whether the bathroom is the whole project or just a piece of a larger puzzle, it will all be cared for in the highest regard.

Garages & Guest Houses

Sometimes a garage is just a garage, but you want it to operate efficiently. Other times, a garage is a blank canvas for something bigger. McBride Remodeling can help you find the perfect solution. The McBride Remodeling team has the experience and talent to help you make the best use of this often overlooked space. Popular projects include:

  • Rebuilding existing historical garages to accommodate modern-sized vehicles
  • Building new garage/guest houses to help alleviate guest overflow at busy cottages
  • Organizational remodels
  • Converting a garage into a bonus room, home office, workshop or guest house

Whatever your garage dreams, McBride Remodeling can turn them into reality.
