How to get the most remodel for your buck.

Drywall Tucson, AZ
Get it fixed. Drywall in Tucson, AZ

Is the lowest price really the best price? Sometimes yes, especially if you are trying to save money, which we all want to do.

When it comes to most things, yes we want to save a few dollars just so we can spend it somewhere else. New shoes, on sale. New clothes, on sale. Wow look at all of this stuff I can get, on sale.

Wouldn't it be nice if everything was like that?

When it comes to our investments, such as our home or our businesses, do we feel the same way?

Do we let our homes "go one more year" instead of patching and painting the ceiling, walls, doors, trim and exterior?  Do we have broken or unbalanced ceiling fans in our homes because " the lights still work"? Do we just pull the shower or tub curtain or doors closed so nobody will see our mildew, loose tile grout and that spout that won't stop dripping? Do we get a rug to cover holes or damaged flooring?

Sure. Sometimes that happens, but when it comes to investments we don't have as much of a desire to spend time or money to fix or figure out how to repair problems.

Can you imagine putting the wrong oil or gas in your car because it's cheaper, not because it will make the car perform the way it's supposed to? That would not be good.

So what do we do?

The next best thing. Look for...A SALE.

You may look at getting your home repairs done or a new project started, but you don't want to spend too much. What does that actually mean?

You don't want to spend too little and not get what you wanted.

You don't want to spend too much and not receive the outcome you desired.

You want to spend the right amount and get more than you expected.

If you are going to be getting apples to apples quotes from qualified contractors, not from cousin Bob (unless he's qualified), then you should be able to get pretty accurate and competitive quotes.

1.Have a detailed list of what kind of work you want done, materials, accessories, when you want to start and an idea of what you want to spend, or your budget.

2.After meeting with contractor 1, if he/she says something needs to be done in order to do this, then add it to the list and let all other bidders know.(remember apples to apples)All changes should be provided to make sure the best quote is received.

3.Give all of the information some thought and decide which contractor you want to work with, remember your initial idea of a budget will most likely change once site conditions and scope have been determined. The cheapest guy might not be the selection you make. It's all about value for you the customer, the information you receive and how you feel about the contractor.

Remember cheap work isn't always good and good work isn't always cheap.

If we constantly try to shop for quality services (like looking for a sale on shoes at the mall) instead of value we will soon see that we can't always spontaneously purchase good contracting?

Remodel to cure boredom?

image

Finding yourself with “nothing” to do? Yeah right. There is always something that you have to do but never really have time to or want to just because it may seem tedious.

Well now is that time. We all get a little tired of seeing that same old dull paint color, same old window treatments and flooring.

Don’t even get me started on updating the restrooms and kitchens, but well they could probably use a little love..right?

When considering refreshing the look in your home start small. Sometimes something as small as a new sink fixture, paint color change or new drapes or blinds can really refresh a space and can be fun to pick out and design your own theme.

New lighting fixtures or even old ones repurposed can add a lot of character to a newly designed space.

New door handles and latches as well as hinges to match your surrounding design elements or hardware are often an inexpensive way to give life to older doors and look and function better than older hardware.

Refreshing an area can not only cure boredom but can help you maintain the lasting value of your biggest investment.

Renew your walls before you paint.

It’s that time of year again. Spring is just around the corner. And we all know what that means…out with the old and in with the new…spring cleaning.

What better time to refresh that paint that you swear you have been planning to get to. You may even have already purchased the paint, brushes etc.
There just seems to be more to do than just painting. First you have to move the furniture…ugh heavy. Next thing is cover everything with paper or plastic so as to not ruin the flooring and so on and so forth. Remove everything from the walls…and I mean everything including wall outlets, those get masking tape.

You think you are now ready to put roller to wall and get this over with. Then you notice all the small holes, old patches that were not done correctly, cracks from settling and also a hole or two from doorknobs and broken baseboard as well.

Afer a while it seems like painting can’t be done yet. Those walls need to be fixed, but you are not a tradesman, you think to yourself. Or maybe you are not getting the desired result after failed attemps at DIY repairs.

In any case we can help you to achieve the results you desire. After all shouldn’t you have things the way you want? And you can tell everyone you did it yourself, your secret is safe with us.
