What Are Your Home Remodeling Plans For 2017?
Here are a few remodeling ideas you might want to consider.
Another year has gone by and there is probably another list of things you’d like to do with your money… If doing a little remodeling on your home is on the radar for this year then you might find this selection of home remodeling tips helpful for someone looking to remodel their Harford County, MD home.
Take Care Of Any Necessary Home Repairs
It’s usually during the cold, wet winter months that problems with a home are often discovered, especially when it involves the building envelope (roofing/siding/windows). Maybe it’s some siding that isn’t fastened correctly? Maybe the windows are no longer sealing properly or maybe you’ve got other issues that have arisen?
As a homeowner, it’s important to take care of the “little” problems before they become big problems. The homeowners we work for are often surprised at how something as simple as a clogged gutter could lead to thousands of dollars in home repairs from an ice dam or backup of water under the roof. What’s even more amazing is the homeowners who let some of these problems fester over many years into something much larger and much more expensive to fix.
From a contractors perspective, we are called to provide estimates and repair homes every year where the problem could have been avoided with a little preventative maintenance and the damage mitigated if quicker action was taken to correct the issue. Unexpected home repairs aren’t something anybody looks forward too!
Update Your Master Bathroom
The master bathroom in your home is that one place you probably get to call your private space, so why not make it the most enjoyable? If you’ve ever stayed in a 4 or 5 star resort then you’ve probably already experienced a luxurious spa-like bathroom, maybe it’s time to have that experience in your home? Bathroom technology has come such a long way, it’s amazing what can be done with an out dated bathroom now-a-days. Digitally controlled shower heads, bathroom fans with lighting and blue tooth speakers built-in, heated tile flooring, timed fan controls, wifi light controls and more make up a part of modern day bathroom remodeling.
If 2017 is the year you transform that master bathroom then let BC Improvements LLC have a look at your project and we’ll provide you with a detailed estimate to build your dream bathroom.
Replacing Those Old, Inefficient Windows
Has this winter been exceptionally cold in your home? Is it really the cooler weather or is it just the performance of your home? If your windows are 20 years old or older and have never been replaced with energy efficient windows then it’s a good time to look at some energy efficient replacements, to help improve your situation for next year. Yes, there is certainly a cost to new windows, but the benefit is increased comfort and less energy use.
The right modern windows, properly installed into your home will help insulate your home against the cold winter weather much better than any aging windows from the past. Your family will be more comfortable and your winter heating bills will be noticeably smaller. If you plan on listing your home for sale in 2017 then replacing all of the windows with energy efficient models are one of the upgrades that almost every homeowner has placed at the top of their shopping list.
BC Improvements LLC specializes in window replacement and energy efficient window installations. We have replacement window solutions for every budget and from a variety of manufacturers. We can even install windows where there never was a window before.
Plans For a New Deck This Year?
One of our staple construction projects during the spring of every year is building beautiful new decks on our customer’s homes and properties. From a simple front porch/entry way wood deck to an elaborate multi-level deck for entertaining and relaxation or even pool decks we can build it all.
Here’s an important tip for any homeowner thinking about building a deck on their Harford County property this year… Don’t wait until the last minute to start working with your contractor!
You might just find your contractor of choice will already be booked solid with work! The time to start planning out a new deck project is usually right around now or immediately after the holidays. Involve your contractor early in the process so they can take a look at your project and let you know of the feasibility and expected cost.
If you decide you want to build your deck this spring but you don’t call a contractor until March or April you might find that your deck could be a few months away and won’t be ready for the summer weather. If you want to enjoy a new deck on your property this spring/summer the time to get started is now.
BC Improvements LLC specializes in the design and construction of custom wood and composite decks of all shapes and sizes.
Need More Living Space?
Another year brings another chapter of life for Maryland families and often that can mean the need for an extra room or even more space in the home. Maybe you’re expecting a newborn in the near future or maybe an aging family member will be moving in? Whatever the reasons might be, the need for more space can be met a number of ways.
You can opt to sell your home and move, this isn’t the best option for families who want to remain in their same neighborhood as they’ve established themselves, or… You can build a home addition or maybe finally finish off that basement. Either option will provide you with the space you need.
For most families, remodeling or finishing their basement is the most economical choice in their quest for more space because it will literally double the available space and there is no need for roofing or extensive electrical/plumbing as it’s usually already in place. This can help keep the costs down compared to a new construction home addition where costs can quickly balloon.
With the addition of appropriate egress windows your finished basement can even be considered living space for an in-law suite or maybe even a basement suite you could rent out for additional revenue.
If you have the available room on your property and a home addition is in your budget then building an addition onto your home will allow you to custom tailor your new space. It’s considerably more expensive though as you’ll be tackling a new construction project and you’ll need a recent survey, drawings, municipal approval and then you’ll need a foundation, framing, roofing, siding, electrical, plumbing and more.
BC Improvements LLC specializes in both home additions and basement finishing/remodeling projects for homeowners throughout Harford County. This is another project you’ll want to book early in the new year, especially if it’s going to be a home addition (new construction) can take considerably longer as we’ll need to deal with more building inspections and municipal approvals.
