Mike’s Guys: Top 5 Home Maintenance Projects to Improve Your Home

As they say, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” While this statement can be applied to many different scenarios in life, it also rings true for home maintenance. A little investment in small repairs can go a long way in preventing major, more expensive issues down the road.

Here are 5 maintenance projects to get you started on updating and maintaining a safe, functional, and efficient home:

 

1. Adding Insulation

Insulation can help you control a number of things, such as temperature (both cool and warm), noise levels, and your monthly energy bill. If your home was built before 1980, your home could be insufficiently insulated and lacking in these areas. Simply adding insultation to your attic space could drastically impact your comfort level as well as your cooling/heating bill. Read more

We love reminiscing on past projects! This complete overhaul of a 1970’s master bathroom is one of our favorites!

Our clients in Arlington, TX had been waiting for years to remodel their master bathroom. The main issue was the large soaking tub that sat diagonally in the center of the room. The original design featured the tub as a focal point, sitting on a tiled step-up with a large cultured tile surround and decorative columns on each side, extending up to the ceiling. With large mirrors on both walls behind it, there was no ignoring that bathtub! The clients are thrilled to finally have a bathtub they are proud of, along with a completely remodeled bathroom, spacious walk-in shower, and custom vanities. Check out the transformation on our blog! Read more

Our featured project this month is a guest bathroom we recently renovated in Fort Worth, TX. The clients bought the 1950’s home nearly 20 years ago and have slowly been updating it one project at a time. One of the final projects on their list was their guest bathroom, which was way past due for a refresh! Our clients expressed their love for nature and hoped to incorporate a natural, wood-look theme into the design.

Medford Design-Build: The Value of a Solid Reputation

The decision to remodel can be a very exciting time for a homeowner, particularly if it is something that has been anticipated for several years. It’s easy to jump in and hire the first company you run across that seems professional.

Trust us, we’ve seen enough home renovation nightmares to know that it’s not something to rush into blindly! It’s essential to take your time and really research a company before signing on the dotted line. The best advice we can give to a homeowner considering a remodel is to hire a company with a consistent reputation. Read more

Mike’s Guys Handyman: The Ease of a Free Virtual Estimate

If there is one common complaint we’ve heard from homeowners throughout the years, it is that they struggled to find a contractor or handyman that would follow-up after their initial conversation. Unfortunately, homeowners are often forced to deal with the frustration of waiting for an estimate that never comes. If you’ve ever experienced a disappearing contractor or non-responsive handyman service, you know how infuriating it is to be seemingly forgotten about when you’re trying to get a project done.

With their priorities in mind, our team came up with a sleek new design to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the bathroom. The finished project is truly stunning! Read more

Our December 2019 Newsletter

December 16, 2019

Our featured project this month is a little different than our usual remodels — it’s in a home that is only 3 years old! While the majority of our projects are completed in homes that are 20 years old or more, this project is proof that new homes need remodeling, too! Our client’s existing bathroom included a spacious walk-in shower, but lacked the spa-like features and free-standing bathtub she always wanted. Although there was a lack of space, our team was able to convert the large shower into a wet room, providing a space for the bathtub and an upgraded shower.
