Hiring the Right Contractor: Why Past Project Photos Matter

Home remodeling is a very visual process. Aside from improving functionality, the main reason homeowners want to remodel is to create an updated look and feel of their home’s interior. A big part of our process at Medford Remodeling is to redesign the space with floor plans and 3-D renderings to showcase the visual changes that will be made. We also provide design assistance with our professional interior designer to ensure the right style of fixtures, appliances, and colors are selected.  Homeowners love to physically see their renovation come together and witness the grand transformation of their home.

It’s Patio Cover Season! Our April 2017 Newsletter

This time of year in Texas offers beautiful, sunny days, but the warming temperatures of the season also mean spring showers and thunderstorms are on the way! These changing weather patterns make it hard to enjoy the outdoors if your home is lacking necessary features. Patio covers are a great solution, providing a sheltered outdoor space for when it rains and a cool, covered area for when it’s sunny and hot.

Patio covers are a common request from our clients during the spring season and all the way through the summer. Many of them are initially interested in arbors or pergolas, but we usually advise them to steer clear of these types of structures and go with a full patio cover instead. The reasons are many:
 
 
When first built, arbors are beautiful and add a great deal of visual appeal to a home’s exterior. The problem is that they instantly go into a state of decay because of the way they are built and the exposure the wood has to the elements. If vines or other vegetation are allowed to grow on an arbor, it decays even faster. The numerous joints and horizontal surfaces of the arbor will hold water, which will soak into the wood regardless of how well it is stained or painted. Within a few short years, all the little rotten spots will get out of hand and the structure will have to be taken down. Arbors and pergolas also do not offer the same level of protection that a patio cover does.

A lot is involved when it comes to remodeling your home, especially if you want a finished renovation that is quality and to code. It’s important to do your research and fully prepare before jumping in! Unfortunately, there is a lot of false information out there about what you should do prior to your remodel. Here are 6 home remodeling ‘precautions’ you may be intending for good that could actually cause big problems throughout your project:

1. Not planning out the entire project from the beginning. Planning your project is a huge factor as to whether or not it will be smooth and successful. You might feel like you’re getting ahead of yourself by making all of your decisions upfront, but doing so prevents issues and delays throughout production. The sooner decisions are made, the sooner materials can be ordered and schedules can be created. There are a lot of parts and pieces involved, and things like backordered products or unavailable professionals can cause a lot of stress and wasted time – all of which can be avoided if proper planning takes place.
 
 
How a design build firm can help: The benefit of working with a design build firm instead of just a general contractor is that all of the planning is done for you, at the beginning of the project. At Medford Remodeling, we start planning from the initial consultation, and ensure that the client is aware and involved in every step of the process.
