In fact, regular home maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure your home and family’s safety throughout the years. Not convinced?

Home Repairs & Modification: Do I Need a Handyman or a Contractor?

Any homeowner knows that maintaining a house requires a lot of work. It can feel overwhelming when you consider everything that needs to be regulated, from the up-keep of electrical and plumbing lines to managing the foundation, the heating system and the AC, the landscaping and exterior of the home, and so much more. In most cases, a licensed contractor (such as a plumber or electrician) can take care of these types of home repairs and maintenance issues. However, aside from keeping all of the mechanics of the house in proper and safe working order, most homes built even as recently as 10 years ago need some level of remodeling. This could be for functional or aesthetic purposes, and often times, both. Perhaps your kitchen cabinets need a fresh stain, or maybe you’d like the old bathtub in your master bathroom to be removed to make room for a walk-in shower. These projects might seem minor in comparison to a large-scale remodel, and leave you asking the question — does this project require a contractor or a handyman? It’s important to know the difference between the two before you hire.
 
 
Here are some tips to help you determine whether a handyman or a contractor will be the best choice for your specific project:

3 Red Flags of “Affordable” Remodeling

With all the beautiful interiors seen on TV shows, featured in home design magazines, and posted across Pinterest and other social media platforms, it’s no wonder home remodeling is such a hot topic among today’s homeowners. Honestly, who wouldn’t want their house to look like Chip and Joanna’s?!
 
 
Odds are, if you’re really committed to the idea of remodeling your home, you’ve probably already looked into the process and maybe have even met with a few contractors to for estimates. While it can be tempting to go all-in with the first contractor that offers you an affordable quote, the old cliché “you get what you pay for” is important to keep in mind. It’s a sad reality that many clients come to us after being ripped-off or left high-and-dry by another contractor who made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. Prices might vary somewhat between remodeling contractors, but if someone quotes you a price that is thousands of dollars less than the others, it’s likely too good to be true!
 
 
Heed the warnings of so-called “affordable” remodeling! It might seem like a good deal at first, but you’ll end up paying significantly more in the long run to have a quality contractor come in and fix what was done incorrectly by the “affordable” contractor. Double (or triple) the cost, time and headache. Ouch!
 
 
Here are the red flags to be aware of when it comes to “affordable” remodeling:

A Master Bathroom Stuck in ’92 Gets a 2017 Refresh

Our most recent remodeling project involved updating the master bathroom in a 1992 home in Grapevine, Texas. While the original bathroom was functional, it definitely lacked the aesthetic appeal of the rest of the home, which we recently helped the clients renovate. There was no need to change the layout of the space, aside from installing a smaller tub to allow for a larger shower. The idea was to simply upgrade the room with new flooring, tiles, vanities, counter tops, and lighting. It’s amazing what an impact these changes can make! Read more
