Your daughters have always joked that all of the remodeling projects around the house will happen after they moved on to college.
They were not wrong.
It is not that you intended to wait until they were both away at college to finish the basement, but the fact of the matter is that when they were both home there was so much chaos at the house that the idea of remodeling was difficult to imagine.
Whether you are getting ready to turn an unfinished basement into an entertainment spot or you want to update the old fixtures and tile in your master bathroom, it is important to make sure that you do your homework. There are lots of contractors that offer remodeling services, but not all of them are the same. Some have low prices, but are not known for completing even the simplest remodeling projects on time. Others are high priced and have long waiting lists to get on their schedule. Finding the right contractor for your job takes both research and patience.
Remodeling Contractors Design Build Renovations That Meet the Needs of the Customer
Large home remodeling companies often serve a number of customers at the same time, while a smaller contractor will only take on one or two clients at once. And while there are some projects that can be tackled by the property owner, the bigger share of these projects require the help of a professional if they are going to add true value to a property.
As more and more property owners seek to find ways to add value to their home, it should come as no surprise that the projected total sales of home improvement retailers in the U.S. in the year 2019 will be $409.2 billion. Among this money that will be spent, there are a number of different kind of projects. Some types of remodeling projects, however, are more common than others. For instance, in 2016, the most recent year for which the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has data, 81% of remodelers indicated that kitchens were their most common renovation. Coming in a close second at 80%, bathrooms were also a very popular request. Whole-house redos, on the other hand, were the third most common requests, and room additions, like the addition of a master bedroom, came in fourth.
You do not have to wait for your children to become young adults and head off to college, but there are many times when families wait until a major transition in their lives before they take on the task of transforming their home into a perfect future space.
Do It Yourself Repair
The saying “so long as there’s a roof over your head” is one that is always taking figuratively. That is until there is an actual leak in your roof that leads you down the path of needing roof repair. Then, your saying suddenly becomes more literal than anyone wants to deal with. When you buy [...]
Each year a little over 11% of Americans move, although most aren’t moving far. One 2017 study found that as many as 62% of movers stayed in the same county. Yet it doesn’t matter the distance you are moving, what matters is how well prepared you are to pack up your stuff. A prepared mover [...]
