Tips on how to avoid getting swallowed by the sea that is home renovation.
The increase of home improvement spending shows that more and more homeowners are choosing to ride the remodeling wave and stay in their current space instead of moving up to a larger, already updated one. Because homes have lost so much of their selling value in the past 6 years, people are investing their money into home renovation in hopes to see a return of that investment in the future.
Deciding to remodel your home, whether the project be big or small, is usually regarded as a daunting decision. Fears of the unknown run through your mind like,“Will I run out of money?”What if I hate it? and “I’ve heard it never gets finished on time”. Sure, the unknown can be scary, but with a little preparation, and the right people to help you, it doesn’t have to be. Check out our tips below on how to ride the remodeling wave:
Homeowners’ number one fear is getting into a project that is going to break the bank. Knowledge is power, guys.
Before: Be prepared for what you’re about to spend. Many websites have cost calculators or over-the-phone quotes, but for many projects, those may not be as accurate as you need them to be. Find a place that does free in-home estimates with no commitment necessary. Meaning, someone will come to your home and won’t make you sign a contract. Ask about financing specials or sales events that are going on. We even have web coupons available all year round.
After: Keep a peace of mind after all the work is done. Most contractors offer warranties, but read the fine print. It will tell you if both products and labor are covered and for how long. We, in addition to having both products and labor under a limited lifetime warranty, offer free annual inspections to keep our customers confident that everything is running smoothly long after we’ve left your home. That’s why we say you can count on us, not once but for a lifetime.

Each individual customer is appointed to a customer representative that will take care of you each and every time you need us. You should never feel like your project is being taken out of your control.

A customer from Dayton, OH commented: “I would like to recognize the salesman and the foreman of the installation team. I was impressed with the way he kept track of everything and solved problems before they became problems.”
After all is said and done, companies that have the resources to get customers’ feedback is a major advantage. Being able to read about others’ past experiences and share your own is crucial. You have the right to be heard! We, using a 3rd party company to ensure no bias, survey each customer to make certain that we meet every homeowner’s expectations and that they are completely satisfied.
