Home Improvements- Small Home Repairs

As a Home Improvement contractor,  we all have those minor home repairs around the house that seem to never get fixed. You know the ones that I am talking about. A cracked tile, a light switch that needs replacing or even a kitchen backsplash install that you have been meaning to get to. Why is it that these home repairs seem to never get done or better yet we look at them every day and say we will get to them but always pass it up for the first thing that comes up.

First of all, to have someone come in such as a repair man, it can get very costly to have all sorts of items on your home improvement punch list get repaired all at once. Another reason is that you don’t have the experience in making these repairs. Another reason which holds many people back from making the repairs is that they don’t have the tools. If you don’t have the proper tools, that could slow you down or keep one from making any repairs or home improvements.

One popular way to gain the knowledge in order to make the home repair is to simply purchase a repair manual. Repair manuals come in every home repair topic. Or simply purchase a well rounded repair manual that covers a wide variety of home repair topics.

If you are interested in making repairs to your home, make a list of the items that need to be repaired and prioritize them. if you have a missing tile in the shower, you may want to have that item repaired before having a hall way light fixture replaced simply for the fact that you don’t want mold or water damage in the bath area. So I can say that the tile take a higher priority than the light fixture.

Master Bathroom Remodeling- NJ Home Improvement Contractor

Do you want to have your own master bathroom suite in your home located Bergen County New Jersey and you are looking to hire a NJ Home Improvement Contractor. One concern is where would you like to build your master bathroom suite. You may need to hire a NJ Home Improvement Contractor to build a home addition in order to accommodate the master bathroom. You may have an extra room alongside your existing master bedroom that would be beneficial for your new master bathroom layout and reconfiguration. Also, if you are planning a new home, you can simply layout a master bathroom into your architectural plans much easier.

The question is, what size master bathroom would be ideal for me? You may want to consult with your NJ Home Improvement Contractor. This is a rather hard question to answer but one major factor that dictates  the size of your master bathroom will be what size is the space you have to work with. As long as the space you have available is at least a minimum of 10’x10′ then you will be able to work within that area. Again this all depends on the homeowner’s needs.
Ask your NJ Home Improvement Contractor what fixtures make a master bathroom suite standout from a standard bathroom and give it more appeal. A double sink bathroom vanity for him and her is probably one of the most requested fixtures for a master bathroom. Also your master sink configuration will consist of a double sized vanity, GFI wall outlets and vanity lights as well. Many homeowners request, if your space allows it, plan on adding both a custom standing shower and a separate Jacuzzi. Usually the shower will be completely custom made from the shower base on up with a frameless shower door to enclose it. To further dress up your shower, install body sprays with separate volume control knobs to turn different body sprays on and off at different times. A steam unit can also be installed and with the press of a button, you will have a all the comforts that your shower can offer.

You may want your NJ Home Improvement Contractor to install a Jacuzzi in your master bathroom. The smallest size Jacuzzi you would want would be 5′ x3′. Your Jacuzzi can be installed with an apron or as a deck mounted version. The deck mount version is where your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will build a landing to support the Jacuzzi. A hole somewhere in the middle of the deck will be cut and the Jacuzzi will be lifted and then lowered into the hole. The landing would be tiled as well as any walls that are exposed. You NJ Home Improvement Contractor would need to create an access panel so that the motor and pumps could be worked on if needed.

HOME ADDITIONS

Building a home addition can give you and your family the extra needed room that you have been looking for. As a NJ Home Improvement Contractor in Bergen County New Jersey, we have made custom room additions, home additions and home remodeling projects of all sorts and sizes. Are you interested in building an addition on your home? If so, here are a few items to think about.

.

ROOM ADDITIONS

Do you live in a home that needs a room addition or home addition. What type of addition are you looking to install? Well there are lots of questions we could ask you to pin point the exact type of room that will work for you and your family. Home remodeling these days usually consists of remodeling your home plus adding an addition of at least 400 square feet or more. We are seeing a huge trend in families adding multi level additions to their homes. What the rooms are usually comprised of is mostly the same from family to family. The multi level addition consists of a rear first floor family room and an upper bedroom addition. Most times the upper bedroom home addition will be a master bedroom suite. The suite will have walk in closets and a separate area for the master bedroom. The original master bedroom usually is the larger of the original bedrooms. That room usually gets downsized and renovated to allow an access hall into the new master bedroom suite.

ADDITIONS

Home additions can be an expansion of any existing room or the creation of an entirely new wing to your home. Whether you own a cape, ranch, bi-level, split level etc., you can add an addition to your home and enlarge that part of your home as long as it conforms to your local building department regulations. Kitchen expansions along with master bedrooms suites and family rooms seem to be the way that the home additions trend is moving in these days. The real estate market is dictating that it is harder to sell during these times so homeowners opt to take their homes off the market and go the route of  a home remodeling. A home addition will bring their home up to par and make it a more livable environment for many families.

REMODELING TIPS THAT INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME
If you are like me, you are always thinking of ways to increase your home’s value with remodeling projects, without dipping into the piggy bank and setting yourself back tons of dollars. Remodeling your home can be costly. Try to do the home improvement’s around your home that add value but aren’t very costly or even can be done by you and not an outside contractor.
One of my favorite Remodeling tips is to take a wasted corner or wall area and build a set of shelves. Be creative when it comes to your shelf remodeling project. Take a wall that has a barely used closet behind it and build recessed shelves into this area. It really dresses up the room and more importantly it make the room look a bit more tidier.
    This next Remodeling Tip is on my top 5 remodeling tips list. Building a reading bench or window seat into a corner or under a bay window can really add some character to your room. Additionally, try to get a fabric that matches your upholstery or bedding that is nearby. The window seat will match perfectly. Enjoy a nice relaxing book while resting on your window seat or bench.
    Adding wainscoting can be the best kept secret of many contractors. Dress up your plain walls with one of many styles of wainscoting. You can purchase a kit or you can install the wainscoting from scratch or in better terms piece by piece. With the proper set of tools, you can be installing wainscoting in your home, designing beautiful walls in no time.
     How about a gas fireplace? With the assistance of licensed plumber and electrician, you can have a beautiful gas burning fireplace. Gas burning fireplaces can serve a few purposes . First they are easy  to use. Hit the switch and watch the fire appear . Hit the switch again and it goes off….It’s as easy to use as I just said. Not to mention the fact that gas fireplaces help act as a heating unit. Add a blower to your gas fireplace and it will heat most rooms.

REMODELING YOUR HOME- ENERGY SAVING TIPS WHEN YOU REMODEL

REMODEL

        HOME IMPROVEMENT

               NJ HOME IMPROVEMENT CONTRACTOR             

Are you remodeling your home now or  planning to remodel in the future? These days with the costs of natural gas and oil skyrocketing, it is very expensive to heat and cool your home. You may want to consider consulting  with your home improvement contractor regarding upgrading the exterior walls to your home addition from 2×4’s to 2×6 construction for your home improvement project.

As a NJ Home Improvement Contractor, many times when we start a home renovation, we will remodel with 2×6 exterior walls. This is beneficial when building new homes, home additions, raised levels or any time you put up new exterior walls. Up until recently, all exterior walls traditionally have been designed and built using 2×4 douglas fur stud framing. An R-11 insulation would be fitted into the bays between studs placed 16″ on center. This has been sufficient for many years.

With skyrocketing energy costs, rules and regulations have been put in place to make home building procedures geared toward producing more energy efficient homes. These rules and regulations vary from place to place but the idea will work regardless of where you are located. If your renovation project is designed with 2×4 construction, discuss with your home renovation contractor what extra costs are involved in order to install the 2×6 framing.

By upgrading your remodeling project, there will be more upfront costs involved. Obviously, you will be paying for the difference between a 2×4 and a 2×6. This method will only be applied to the exterior walls and not all the walls such as the interior. Since these wall will go from 3 1/2″ thick to 5 1/2″ thick you will now be able to upgrade your insulation from an R-11 batt insulation to an R-19. What does all this mean with your energy bill? Well, that is simple. You will be protecting your interior from any exterior element’s better. Almost 1  1/2 times better which means you will be locking in the heating and cooling.

By applying this strategy when you remodel, you will be paying more to upgrade with the 2×6’s and the better insulation BUT you will be paying less monthly for your heating and cooling bills. I myself have built entire floors for myself and my customers. My own home is amazingly efficient in both the summer and winter. The feedback I receive from my customers is positive as well. So sure, it does cost more to build this way but you will make your money back within 3 years or less in most cases pending the size of the remodeling job.

Another item to remember is that with the larger walls, your home improvement contractor will need to factor in the extra trim material needed to extend your window jambs to compensate for the thicker walls. Not to worry, this is standard procedure. As a NJ Home Improvement Contractor, I can tell you that the extra cost to extend your window jambs is minimal.

Discuss your remodeling options with your home improvement contractor for your next home addition or home improvement project.
