What Are Your Home Remodeling Plans For 2018?
Here are a few remodeling ideas you might want to consider!
Another year and another list of things you’d like to do with your money… If remodeling your San Jose home is on your list of plans for this year then you might find this selection of remodeling tips helpful.
Take Care Of Any Necessary Home Repairs
It’s usually after a good rain storm or wind storm that problems with a home are discovered, especially when it involves the building envelope (keeps out the weather/elements!). Maybe it’s some siding that isn’t fastened correctly, maybe the windows are no longer sealing properly and your AC is working too hard to keep the house cool, or maybe you’ve got some obvious roofing issues? As a homeowner, it’s important to take care of the “little” problems before they become big problems. It’s amazing how something as simple as a clogged gutter can lead to thousands of dollars in home repairs if left unchecked. What’s even more amazing is the homeowners who let some of these problems fester into something much larger (and 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 but if you suspect a problem with any aspect of your home it’s important to call in the professionals. Silver Design & Remodeling Inc. can help you repair any aspect of your home.
Get Your Roof Checked Out
California rain storms aren’t kind to your roofing system and if it’s been neglected for many years or is starting to show obvious signs of wear then it’s probably a good time to have the roof checked out. If you’d like to replace your roof with a more modern and durable shingle you can also take the opportunity to improve your curb appeal with one of the many dimensional shingle products on the market. Dimensional shingles add texture and dimension to your roof and look much prettier than a standard strip or 3 tab shingle.
Replacing a roof on an older home is a fairly common home improvement project and can usually be completed in just a couple of days. If your roof is in great shape it’s a good idea to inspect all your roof flashing and your gutter system too to make sure all is well and water can’t find it’s way in.
Replacing Those Old, Inefficient Windows
Has this spring and summer been exceptionally warm for you? Is it really the weather or is it the performance of your home? If your windows are 20 years old or older and have never been replaced then it’s time to look at some energy efficient replacements. The right modern windows, properly installed into your home will help insulate your home against the heat much better than any aging windows from the past, especially if they are single-pane. Your family will be more comfortable and AC bills will be noticeably smaller. If you plan on selling your home in 2018 then new windows are one of the upgrades that almost every home buyer is looking for and is a really good selling feature.
Silver Design & Remodeling Inc. specializes in window replacement and energy efficient window installations. We have replacement window solutions for every budget.
Plans For a New Deck This Year?
One of our staples during the spring and summer of every year is building beautiful new decks on our customer’s properties. From a simple front porch/entry way deck to an elaborate multi-level deck on a hillside home for entertaining and relaxation. We can also build pool decks too. Here’s an important tip for any homeowner thinking about building a deck on their 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 up and you’ll be waiting months for your new deck. The time to start planning out a new deck project is usually right 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 year but you don’t call a contractor until November or December you might find that your deck could be a few months away still. If you want to enjoy a new deck on your property this spring/summer the time to get started is now.
Need More Living Space?
Another year brings another chapter of life for San Jose families and often that can mean the need for extra room in the home. Maybe you’re expecting a newborn in the near future or maybe an aging family member will be moving in with you? 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 or… You can build a home addition or smaller room addition. Either option will provide you with the space you need.
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 (permits) and then you’ll need a foundation, framing, roofing, siding, electrical, plumbing and more. They are not small projects but they are certainly rewarding for a family looking for additional space.
Silver Design & Remodeling Inc. specializes in both home additions and room addition projects for homeowners throughout San Jose And The Bay Area. 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.
