What Happens During a Home Remodel

What Happens During a Home Remodel

When you are choosing a contractor, you need to choose one who is honest, trustworthy, reputable, licensed, skilled, insured, and fair. You need to get a quote and decide if you communicate and get along well with this person. If so, hire them and you can begin the project.

If you’re doing a home remodel, the contractor will come by your home to view the current look of the room. He/she will learn what you want to change, keep, or improve. You want to give the contractor an idea of how frequently you use the space and the purpose of the room.

The contractor will ask you what you want the remodel to achieve. Do you want just an updated look? Do you need more space? More storage?

The contractor, most likely with his/her designer, will help you come up with different ideas to design your goals. He/she will let you know what will work and what cannot work.

The contractor will let you know how he/she operates during a home remodel, so you will know what steps to expect and what will be going on in your home. He/she will let you know how many people are working on the project and who to expect inside your home. read more

The Importance of Regular Home Maintenance

The Importance of Regular Home Maintenance

Throughout the year, there are things you should be doing yourself in your home or hiring a contractor to do. These “things” are preventative measures and upkeeping tasks that if you do not ignore, you can possibly avoid bigger problems from occurring in your home.

We wanted to share with you some regular maintenance tasks you should be doing throughout the year or having a contractor do, so you won’t end up with something broken that needs to be majorly repaired or replaced.

  • Clean your gutters out. Dirt and leaves get stuck in them. When they are full, the gutters are pointless and cannot do their job, so the water can potentially leak into your foundation. Your gutter can also collapse from the excess weight in it. You should clean your gutters once a week if you can.
  • If you see any signs of termites in your home, call an exterminator immediately, because if you ignore it they can eat away at the structure of your home and cause your home to be compromised.
  • If you see dampness, rust, mold, or collection of water, call a plumber to fix this. Water damage can cause structural problems for your home and health problems. Dampness also attracts a lot of insects, including termites.
  • Make sure big trees in your property are not compromising your foundation by their roots.

If you do these few tasks throughout the year, you can end up savings thousands in the long run. Upkeep can be annoying and time consuming, but it is worth it to keep your home safe and livable.

Get Your Florida Contractor’s License

Whether electrical or mechanical, there will always be a need for contractors. As you can see from the tasks above, contractors will always be called upon for certain tasks. If you want to be a licensed contractor, our team can help make that happen. We will put all your paperwork together and send it off to the Board for approval. read more
