Once you realize your home needs remodeling, it starts to be all you think about. You imagine and plan and are ready to get things going. But do you do it yourself? Or dare you hire a contractor? You don’t necessarily want to call a ton of contractors, hear a bunch of pitches and sales, when your friend has the basic skills to help you get the job done. So are those contractors really necessary? We agree. You don’t need a bunch of pitches. What you really need is good advice and a team that gets the job done.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we decided that you don’t need any more random information, you just need the honest truth. We know you are a hard working person with a desire to live a good life in a house that feels like a home; without the runaround. You’ve put in years and sweat to create the life you’re living and we want to say thank you; thank you for helping make our country what it is today.
So you want to remodel? You’re not alone. We are the contractors at Unique Home Building. We are hard working people with families and values and are here to support yours along the way.
Here’s what we want to let you know:
Remodeling can be done by handy people who have an understanding of the inner workings of home structure, such as electrical, plumbing, foundation, insulation and more. If you choose to take on this venture alone, keep in mind that you’ll need to have the proper permits and licensing.
If you are choosing to do the inner workings stated above, like the electrical or plumbing yourself, then please, at least hire a consultant to double check your work and to advise you along the way. These are not areas to take chances on.
Consider your design and floor plan as well. Many people don’t realize that they’re idea looks good on paper, but creating it will mean that you’re working against the elements like sunshine and ending up with a hotter house in the summer and a colder one in the winter.
Another thing to realize is that one incorrect measurement can ruin everything… a very expensive domino effect that you don’t need. Contractors are insured to give you peace of mind that your measurements are right, pipes are protected, electrical is up to date and safe and generally, they’re the contractors because they’re the experts.
Again, these are all basic tips that to some degree, you know. But we know how important they are and are not to be dealt with blindly!
Yes we are contractors and yes, we think it’s best to hire one. Why? Because we are trained, experienced, licensed, insured and know how to get you what you want without the headache, dead ends, money waste and regrets. Hiring a contractor gets you the design you are looking for that meets all your needs and all the professionals required to do the job right the first time.
And no, not all contractors are the same. That’s why it’s important to check out reviews and history of the contractor’s business, like this one.
Your home is too important to be treated lightly. Make sure this process is simple and clear for you. Please contact us with any further questions you might have and we’ll happily guide you in the right direction.
