Kitchens and Bathrooms Remodeling – Let’s face it, our kitchens are the centers of our homes. When’s the last time you went to a dinner party or social gathering where most people weren’t in the kitchen? When deciding to update your kitchen, there are a few important things to think about. Why do you want to remodel your kitchen? Is the layout dysfunctional? Not all architects cook, and not all kitchens have a flow that will meet your family’s needs. Do you simply want the kitchen to be more pleasing to the eye? Replacing out of date countertops and worn cabinets as well as updating appliances can bring a whole new look to your home. Regardless of the renovations you make, Money magazine’s November 2010 issue suggests that you can expect to recoup 72% of a major kitchen renovation when you sell your home. Why not spend the difference and enjoy your new kitchen today?
Bathroom updates can be simple, adding a new coat of paint or hanging a new mirror. The next step may include updating your lighting or flooring. Jim can help you with new flooring whether your budget calls for vinyl, tile, or high-end travertine. Major bathroom renovations can involve replacement of sinks, tubs, and bathroom fixtures. Money magazine’s November 2010 issue suggests that you can expect to recoup 71% of a mid-range bath remodel. On one of Jim’s recent bathroom remodeling jobs, he found that a previously undiscovered shower leak had rotted floor joists underneath the shower. If the shower had not been replaced, the leak could have caused major long-term structural damage to the home. Whether you need a new look or repairs, Jim can help lead you in the right direction.
