When you’re ready to do an upgrade to your home, carefully consider the scope of what you want to do and truthfully ask yourself if it will really add value to your home.  Don’t make the mistake of overdoing it or upgrading in the wrong room or area.  Think about resale.  Will this change help you sell your house faster and for more money later on?  What do most people want?  It’s what sells houses – kitchens and bathrooms.

If you’re not going to do the work yourself or if you plan to act as General Contractor, do some research and find the best talent in the business to perform the individual tasks.  Ask around.  Check references.  Find people that are people-oriented.  And hire local – you’ll get faster service and help support your community.  Consider the small business too.  Any independent business that’s been around a while obviously takes pride in their work.

If you choose wisely, you’ll add immediate value to your home by going quality in materials and workmanship.  And you’ll love your home even more.  One of our favorites for that transforming tile work and flooring in the Walla Walla Washington area is Mark Robinson, 509-525-4677.
